If it is a handyman or a construction professional, then you are likely to take the tools with you. In fact, you may need to travel with them for a moment. Regardless of whether you are traveling for business or helping in a charity mission project, it is important to know what rules apply to airplane travel. If you plan to carry your devices on a flight, then you want to take some time to get to know these rules. So you can plan your disappointments in advance instead of traveling ahead.
Before we compare which devices can be delivered on the machine and which cannot be – it is important to understand that there are different rules for different types of devices. And they may even differ from airlines, and unfortunately, sometimes the TSA's checkpoints, though likely to be consistent. Fortunately, many devices can be carried in baggage while others can be carried as portable luggage. If you are still not sure, please contact the airline in advance to check how to deliver the planned equipment.
As expected, all sharp edge tools come from portable luggage. This is, of course, a direct result of 9/11, but to be honest, it is surprising that they were not banned before. This includes saws, blades, drills and box cutters. While you can't carry them on board, you can put them on your checked baggage. Keep in mind, however, that if you carry tools that are allowed on board, make sure they are properly secured in their bags. You do not want to injure yourself or others by means of improperly secured devices.
Prohibitions on carriage such as cattle, hammers and masses are prohibited along with sharp edges. They are generally prohibited because of their weight and size – although the risk of attack is rare, they represent a significant threat to flight when stored in tanks. Like most other devices, you can usually check these devices in your checked baggage.
Although it seems that you can't bring any tools with you – that's not entirely true. You can bring with you a variety of tools, including screwdrivers and pliers. There may be more tools, but as mentioned earlier, make sure you check the airline. Even though you can place a few pliers on board – every tool should be less than seven inches long. If they are longer, you will probably need to examine them.
Finally, despite the fact that you can bring some tools with you, it is a good idea to always put the devices in the registered baggage. Or, if you are afraid that the airline will lose your luggage with the devices, send them to a vendor like FedEx or UPS. The reason for this is that while some devices are allowed, other passengers may be uncomfortable and the TSA must provide extra comfort just because it stops. And it is highly undesirable to have the screws pulled in flight.
