TSA prohibited items list changing April 25

TSA prohibited items list changing April 25

MEDIA RELEASE

TSA established a committee to review the prohibited items list based on an overall risk-based security approach.

After the review, TSA Administrator John S. Pistole made the decision to start allowing the following items in carry-on bags beginning April 25:

* Small Pocket Knives – Small knives with non-locking blades smaller than 2.36 inches and less than 1/2 inch in width will be permitted

* Small Novelty Bats and Toy Bats

* Ski Poles

* Hockey Sticks

* Lacrosse Sticks

* Billiard Cues

* Golf Clubs (Limit two)

This is part of an overall risk-based security approach, which allows Transportation Security Officers to better focus their efforts on finding higher threat items such as explosives.

This decision aligns TSA more closely with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards.

These similar items will still remain on the prohibited items list:

* Razor blades and box cutters will remain prohibited in carry-on luggage

* Full-size baseball, softball and cricket bats are prohibited items in carry-on luggage
