I am going out of town and not checking baggage should I mail my therma pen ahead? has anyone carried one on board?

    I seriously doubt they would allow you to take one on board. My friend had his fingernail clippers confiscated........

    you will definitely not be allowed to carry it onboard. Although my wife got through 4 x-ray machines with my big swiss army knife in her purse before she finally got "caught". Her face was as red as her hair.

    I haven't tried, they took a miniature nail clipper from me, wouldn't want to lose my pen. -RP

    I would be surprised if they didn't take it. boy would I raise a stink too! LOL I have taken mine to work a couple of times to use and alway double check that I have it to take home. I am bad and hate to cook with out it! I even took a sharpie and put the temp of rare steak, chic and pork on the back of it, Julie
  • If I got caught at the airport with a Thermapen and they were going to take it, I would do the following: I would ask them to cut the probe off. Then I'd mail it to Thermoworks and ask them to fix it. It would be cheaper than a new Thermapen!
