Apr 14, 2008
Are you a handyman business? If so, it is likely that you used to carry your tools around you wherever you go. In fact, there is also a chance that you may need to travel with them. Whether traveling for business or not, it is important to know that the airline industry as a specific set of rules on air transport tools. If you plan brining your tools with you, you want to take the time to famialrize yourself with these rules. Doing so may prove useful, in more ways than one.

Before examining the tools that are not allowed aboard an airline and those that are, it is important to know one thing, there are different types of rules. Most airlines do not strictly prohibit you from carry tools with you, but they do restrict you from carry them at certain times. For instance, you will find that a large number of tools can be stored in your checked baggage, but they are prohibited from being stored in your carryon luggage. If, at anytime, you are confused about these bans, you are advised to contact your airline for additional information.

A group of tools that are banned from carryon baggage includes sharp objects. With the recent focus on airport security, it must be very aware of this kind of prohibition. Mountains, the Sierra, drills, and knives are banned from all aircraft cabins. In essence, this means that you can not store these items in their carryon luggage, but may be packed in your checked baggage. Since all baggage, including that the bags not plan to keep with you at all times, you have to be registered, you are advised to to properly secure these tools. Failure to do so can lead to an employee of the airline Air receive an injury that could have been avoided.

In addition to the tools with sharp edges, there is also a ban on carryon baggage tools that could be used as a deadly weapon. These tools include axes, hatchets, cattle prods, hammers and tongs. The ban was imposed mainly because of the size and weight of these items. Like most other tools, the airline industry will allow you to store those heavy tools in your checked luggage.

Although it may seem as if all tools are banned from your carryon luggage, this is not the case. There are a number of tools that can be stored in your carryon luggage. These tools include a screwdriver and pliers. Other tools may also be allowed, but they must not have been mentioned above. It is also necessary that these tools are not more than seven inches long. In cases where there are more than seven inches, you need to make other arrangements.

Despite the fact that certain tools can be stored in your carryon luggage, it may be a good idea to put these items in your checked baggage or leave them at home. Even though these items are allowed, you may raise suspicion from having them with you aboard a plane. That suspicion may not necessity come from airport security officials, but it may come from other passengers. With the way that the world works today, it may be best if you refrain from including these tools in your carryon luggage, unless you absolutely need them.
