Depends on the airport. Here in Houston and in Pittsburgh, after you go to the 
ticket counter or the E-Ticket machine, the Baggage Check is right there. You 
hand your locked bag to the TSA agent (they told me to have it locked), they 
run it through the scanner, if okay, you go on. If not, they ask you to open 
it, they examine it and then you lock it back up.
