Taking pointed (not sharp) tools in carry on luggage between Thai airports

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have experience taking tools that are pointed but not sharp (like an allen wrench) between Thai airports in one's carry on luggage?

 

I'm also wondering if it would be any better to keep it in a bag vs on my person, I imagine actually having it on my person would draw more suspicion.

Allen wrenches arent pointed are they.

 

I have one in my camera bag. I pass though security everywhere.

@NyezhovThey have a point but not a sharp tip. The skating allen wrenches have a grip and kind of look a bit more aggressive: https://www.lazada.co.th/products/magideal-inline-skates-spanner-roller-skate-t-handle-allen-wrench-skate-shoes-hex-key-i286852990-s467464089.html

 

Not too expensive though so I guess I'll try my luck.

You would be correct there, having anything on you these days when you pass through security, apart from clothes is forbidden, gotten ridiculous :crying:

If you haven't got a checked bag then putting it/them in your carry on is your best option but be prepared to have to give it up to security. Something like that could be used as a weapon or to do nasty things to the inside of a plane.

They refused my star spanner 10 in my hand baggage on a Phuket U-tapao flight with Air Asia. I only needed that one spanner as I exactly knew what I needed to tighten once arriving at Ocean Marina. Checking in my hand luggage was offered for more than my flight price because I had not pre-booked. I threw away my spanner and bought a new one in Jomtien. Absolutely pathetic.

Why would you want to carry an allen wrench in your carry-on luggage anyway?

Because you do not want to pay for the check in luggage just for an allen key?

Could be used as an hammer, and I would not want one of those on my flight.

Why is it pathetic?

A. That is not true at all and B. The measures that are in place are for our safety, all of us. So learn to live with it.

 

Just I will be doing in about 5 hours.

Do expand on your statement please?

When you have to take off your wristwatch and shoes and any jewellery, leaving any ones clothes, how is my statement "not true at all"?

"For our own safety" why - due to actions by our leaders maybe? Problem - reaction - solution! least we live in a free world 🙂 

"Learn to live with it" OK, given the choice's I will.

Have a good safe flight 🙂

There’s so many items that are not taken off us, fountain pen for example could make a lethal weapon....

Where do they draw the line, some martial artists are lethal weapons, are they not to fly?
