    Hello,

    Silly question really but I am genuinely unsure. Me and my partner are going on our hols and we wanted to make the flight a little more... “exciting.”

    I thought wearing my kegel balls would be a good idea but then I had the dreaded thought of would they set off any of the security things!?

    Any advice or any similar experiences would be great thanks!

    Hello,

    Don’t wear them through security or the scanners. It can cause unnecessary problems and they will probably spot them and have to check them out. Best solution would be to put them in your hand luggage and put them in after you’ve been through security :-)

    Definitely do not wear them through the scanner - that would be super awkward. Should be fine in hand luggage and then popped in after security.

    If they have any electric aka vibrating components you might need to take them out of your hand luggage when it goes through the scanner.
    Just something to think about.

    Don't need to take vibs out, but you might be asked to show what is in the bag and then also show to the officer that it functions (perhaps checked bags best?)

    Laptops and tablets are normally all that need to be taken out of your hand luggage for the past few years.

    As has already been suggested, don't wear for security and pop them in just after?

    DO NOT wear them through security. Here in the USA TSA takes a scan where they will show up and you may be asked to remove them to prove you are not concealing something illegal. Not sure if they scan where you live but they could also set off a metal detector depending on the type of balls. Place them in you rhand luggage and place them after you go through security is my best advice.
