Can you bring a 7" screwdriver onto an airplane?
I only said "yes" because I felt like these questions were intended for a point you are making... So yes is correct for 7" and no for 12"?
Well done, gold star
Can you? Yes. Are you allowed to? No.
Wrong, 7" is totally ok according to the TSA website
I think it's ok provided it is snugly secured between your cleavage. Butt or boob, your choice. LOL
Nope, 100% good to go
You need to quiz Broncomark. He's TSA.
See previous poll answer. ;)
You can also bring knitting needles...
This is true
80% of people are mistaken.
Better throw away your soda and buy a $5 one past security.
Yes in your checked luggage.
And carry on
Apparently 3" is the deadly line
That's because most vital organs are 3 inches beneath the skin.
No, 7" is perfectly ok, 12" is not.
So, no, that's not the reason.
Screwdrivers may be only specifically prohibited above 7", but if it has more than a 3 inch shaft, a 5 inch screwdriver is still a dangerous object or some other such nonsense.
The TSA website says " 7 inch screwdrivers are acceptable for carry on" it makes no statement as to dimensions if handle and shaft.
The big pile of stuff confiscated by the TSA said they are not.
You don't seriously give those bottom of the barrel goons that much credit do you?
Check for yourself
The question was whether you could bring them on a plane. If the "bottom-of-the-barrel goons" confiscate it–rightfully or wrongfully–you can't bring it on the plane.
If they aren't even bright enough to know their own standards does anyone think they're ANY level of deterrent?
Well, it's not like they can confiscate the part that makes the plane not blow up. That and the bomb-sniffing technology/dogs are pretty effective.
I've used the explosive detection technology in the military, that they also use in the airports (Smiths Detection is a happy group of folks I can tell ya that), and the machines are WORTHLESS. The DoD stopped using them. Dogs are fairly effective.
