Can I get on a commercial aircraft carrying my Leatherman tool?
No, at this time you cannot pass through the security checkpoint with a Leatherman tool. You may however, stow it in your checked luggage that travels under the plane. We do make one model, the Style PS that follows all the TSA specifications, for a carry-on multi-tool, but remember - ultimately it is up to the discretion of the individual TSA agent as to what they will let you carry or not. For the latest federal regulations, please visit www.tsa.gov.
The following Leatherman tools are allowed in carry-on luggage under the current TSA rules (updated 3rd January 2018):
- Juice CS3
- Tread LT
- Tread Metric
- Hail + Style PS
- Piranha 2
- Style PS
ATTENTION: UPDATED TSA KNIFE POLICY As of June 5, 2013, the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) announced they have cancelled their decision to allow knives as part of a traveller's carry-on baggage. For more information on these changes, please visit www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/prohibited-items.
Please note: Before carrying a multi-tool on a flight, please check the TSA website for a full update on their sharp object policy. TSA agents have full discretion over allowable items for the safety of all passengers and International laws may vary. Also note that Leatherman Tool Group does not warranty tools that are lost, stolen, or confiscated.
