The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) website provides visitors with an up-to-date and comprehensive list of permitted items that are allowed to pass through the security check points.

Items are organized into the following categories:

  • Sharp objects
  • Sporting goods
  • Guns and Firearms
  • Tools
  • Martial Arts and Self Defense items
  • Explosive and flammable materials, disabling chemicals and other dangerous items
  • Other items

It’s always a good idea to check this list before your pack your carry on bag. Know which items are permitted and which are prohibited past security lines will save you the hassle of throwing away and personal possessions or spending some unwanted quality time with a TSA airport official.
