I just took a sailing harness and tether
through security at three different airports,
with nary a problem. The harness has two
stainless steel rings 2" in diameter. The
tether has a snap shackle and two Winchard
hooks. It raised a couple of eyebrows, but
they only inspected it one time out of four.
(But on't try to fly with a CO2 cartridge.
The word on the street is that those things
raise the alarm.)
