CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Despite it being obvious, items such as brass knuckles, martial arts tool and stun guns are not allowed on an airplane, but people have tried to get through security with them at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport last year.
Today the airport and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) displayed prohibited items at the airport that were voluntarily abandoned by passengers.
Prohibited items, such as knives and brass knuckles, and HazMat (hazardous materials such as household chemicals) were stopped by TSA officers at Hopkins last year. These items have included stun guns, inert grenades, brass knuckles and martial arts tools.
Here is what is allowed:
The 3-1-1 rule still applies to carry-on bags. Liquids, gels, aerosols, creams and pastes must be 3.4 ounces (100ml) or less per container; must be in 1-quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag is permitted per passenger; and the plastic bag must be taken out of your suitcase and placed into a screening bin. The bag limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring and enables quick screening.
Passengers must declare larger liquids. Medications, baby formula/food and breast milk are allowed in reasonable quantities exceeding 3.4 ounces, and they don't have to be in the zip-top bag, but they must be declared for inspection at the checkpoint before you send your bag into the x-ray tunnel. If in doubt, put your liquids, gels, aerosols, creams and pastes in your checked baggage. But make sure they are not HazMat as certain chemicals are not allowed in either carry-on or checked bags.
Call TSA Cares at 855-787-2227, it's a helpline that provides travelers with disabilities, medical conditions and other special circumstances additional assistance during the security screening process. Call 72 hours prior to traveling with questions about screening policies, procedures and what to expect at the security checkpoint.
TSA Passenger Support Specialists are available. Travelers requiring special accommodations or concerned about the security screening process at the airport may ask a TSA officer or supervisor for a passenger support specialist who can provide on-the-spot assistance.
