I'd like to bring shears with me (as in the smaller hair shears like you can get at a pharmacy) in my carry-on luggage on a flight. This is what the TSA website says about scissors:
If packed in carry-on, they must be less than 4 inches from the pivot point.
What is the "pivot point" when referring to luggage? This is what I have - the main compartment opens pretty much all the way around. So where can I pack my shears so that it would be allowed?
