So many planes have been detoured to Barnuba Kui because of hijackers using pedal wrenches. It's on page 44 of the TSA manual, Section D-30. Here is the page, scroll down for 40 minutes until you find it: https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/whatcanibring/allIf you remove your pedals, pack you pedal wrench with the bike. TSA will probably confiscate your pedal wrench. I know this because the Texas state government surplus store has a box of pedal wrenches because of this.
Perfect. Was just worried about my flats and somewhat my multitool.I've carried on my helmet, pedals, shoes and saddle bag with multi tool, levers etc. The steel core levers looked like razor blades on the XRay. But no issues after they looked through it all. I would pull anything metal out and run it through seperately to make the process smoother.
I've had TSA confiscate a single allen/hex wrench from my carry on, explaining that tools could be used to disassemble and access service panels and similar in the cabin or washrooms. No idea if that's really a thing or if they were going overboard that day. Either way, it's not like you can effectively argue the situation. I'd imagine a complete multitool would be at even more risk of getting confiscated.Perfect. Was just worried about my flats and somewhat my multitool.
I agree on all points. I'm just saying that it did happen to me.Circlip, I do not believe that is a thing, lots of professionals will bring their tools with them as carry-ons, as long as they aren't sharp or could be used to hurt people. Most likely that was someone going overboard. If you encoutner such a situation, ask to see a supervisor, which is usually one with 2 or 3 stripes, explain the situation, I would imagine it would be fine. I have brought non-pointy multi-tools before and never had a problem. Once you get into "could be used to unscrew stuff", well, you could do that with car keys and any metal edge, so you've opened the gates up to just about everything. That doesn't pass the smell test IMO.
Got i have these nasty GTs with beartrap like cages. Shins just scream ER and stitches looking at them. I used thema couple times, and managed to gash a leg through shin guards with them!My shins will testify that my Chesters qualify as a weapon.
