3-1-1 Carry-on Policy: One Small Refill Kit

The TSA 3-1-1 policy limits the amount of liquid permitted in carry-on luggage to a single, quart-size bag filled with 3.4 oz. or smaller containers of liquid per passenger. The bag must be clear and plastic with a zip top, and all liquid containers must fit comfortably inside the bag with the zipper closed. Remove the bag of liquids from your carry-on bag and place it in a security bin to be X-rayed separately upon arrival at the TSA security checkpoint. If you want to carry on one of our 30 ml ink refill kits, it should go through without a problem.
