Knowing the basics of Checkpoint Friendly

If you recently started traveling frequently for work, you may not understand the importance of checkpoint friendly bags. The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) released some guidelines a few years ago covering the rules of checkpoint friendly. Here is the criteria, according to the TSA, that a bag must meet to be considered checkpoint friendly:

  • Your laptop bag has a designated laptop-only section that you can lay flat on the X-ray belt
  • There are no metal snaps, zippers or buckles inside, underneath or on-top of the laptop-only section
  • There are no pockets on the inside or outside of the laptop-only section
  • There is nothing in the laptop compartment other than the laptop
  • You have completely unfolded your bag so that there is nothing above or below the laptop-only section, allowing the bag to lie flat on the X-ray belt

There are three different styles of bags that the TSA listed which could produce a clear and unobstructed image of the laptop when undergoing X-ray screening.
