HEED 3 - Traveling
YOU CAN FLY WITH YOUR HEED!
Your Heed must be depressurized and the regulator removed from the cylinder to allow for visual inspection. Follow these steps when packing for your trip.
"If you place your HEED in your carry-on bag, have your HEED cylinder and regulator exposed in a separate bin with the cylinder clearly empty with no cover. This way, TSA can quickly visually inspect the empty cylinder. This will prevent delays in the security line. After you have moved through security, cover the cylinder opening, return it to your carry-on bag, and wait until you arrive at your dive destination or home before reattaching the regulator to the cylinder. Don't forget your Owner's Manual to answer all your refilling and assembly questions."
"The HEED Travel Pack is a great accessory providing two caps to protect the treaded end regulator, keep dust out of the cylinder, and comes with a few extra o-rings, too! The regulator cap is great at keeping the exhaust disc’s, washer and o-ring in place."
"Except for personal medical oxygen cylinders, you can only carry an EMPTY compressed gas cylinder onboard a plane. To be permitted (in either carry-on or checked baggage), it must be clearly visible to the TSA officer that the cylinder is empty. Personal oxygen is permitted if the regulatory valve has not been tampered with or removed.
"Unless being used for personal medical oxygen, the gas cylinder regulator valve must be completely disconnected from the cylinder (in other words, the cylinder has an open end that allows the TSO to visually inspect the cylinder). TSOs will NOT remove the seal or regulator valve from the cylinder. If the gas cylinder is sealed (the regulator valve is still attached) and not required for personal medical oxygen, the gas cylinder is prohibited, regardless of the reading on the pressure gauge indicator."
