TSA Prohibited Items
Due to increased security measures, many common items are on the TSA's list of prohibited items for carry-on and/or checked baggage. To ensure the safety and the convenience of fellow travelers, please be sure to leave these items at home.
If a prohibited item is brought to the checkpoint, travelers may be criminally and/or civilly prosecuted or at the least asked to dispose of the item. A TSA screener and/or law enforcement officer makes determinations depending on the item and the circumstances. Please understand, bringing a prohibited item to a security checkpoint — even accidentally — is illegal.
Common sense is the best guide for what to leave behind when traveling by air. Weapons of any kind, as well as everyday objects that can obviously be used as weapons, are inappropriate items in carry-on or checked baggage. Please check official government lists for the most current restrictions before taking the word of friends, family members, or others.
