Am I allowed to bring 1.9 g lash glue and tripod in my carry-on baggage? This is only my second time flying and I used to put my tripod in my checked baggage. We didn't get additional baggage this time so I don't know if those items are prohibited in carry-on baggage.

AirAsia states :

(a) Pointed/edged Weapons & Sharp Objects;

  • Axes & hatchets, arrows and darts, crampons (grappling iron, hooked bar of iron, or plate with iron spikes used in mountaineering)
  • Harpoons & spears, ice axes & ice picks, ice skates, lockable or flick knives with blades of any length, knives, including ceremonial, religious and hunting knives made of metal
  • Meat cleavers, machetes, open razors and blades (excluding safety or disposable razors with blades enclosed in cartridge), sabres, swords and swordsticks, scalpels, scissors with blades of any length, ski and walking/hiking poles, throwing stars, tradesman's tools that have the potential to be used as a pointed or edged weapon, e.g. drills and drill bits, box cutters, utility knives, all saws, screwdrivers, crowbars, hammers, pliers, wrenches/spanners, blow torches.

Please take note that any sharp objects in checked-in baggage should be securely wrapped to prevent injury to screeners and handling personnel

(b) Blunt Instruments;

  • Baseball and softball bats, clubs or batons - rigid or flexible - e.g. billy clubs, blackjacks, night sticks & batons, cricket bats, golf clubs, hockey and hurley sticks, lacrosse sticks;
  • Kayak and canoe paddles, skateboards, billiard, snooker and pool cues, fishing rods;
  • Martial arts equipment, e.g. knuckle dusters, clubs, coshes, rice flails, nun-chucks, kubatons, kubasaunts.

(c) Batteries (Lithium, Lithium Ion Cells, Batteries, and Spare Batteries)

  • Cabin Baggage: Electronics devices such as cameras, cellular phones, laptops, and camcorders containing lithium or lithium ion cells (a Wh rating exceeding 100Wh but not exceeding 160Wh) for personal use are allowed for carriage into the aircraft.
  • Checked Baggage: Portable electronic devices containing lithium metal or lithium ion cells or batteries are allowed in checked baggage EXCEPT e-cigarettes and self-balancing battery powered small vehicles (E.g: Electric Bicycle and Segway). Spare batteries for example power banks, are NOT allowed in checked baggage. Wheelchairs and mobility devices with batteries can only be carried as checked baggage given that the batteries must be prepared for the flight according to the guide here .

The following items are prohibited in your baggage whether it is checked in or not:

(a) Any Guns, Firearms & Weapons;


(b) Explosives and flammable substances;


(c) Chemical and toxic substances;


(d) Live plants and flowers


Millions of people carry makeup and camera equipment in their carry-on daily, don't worry, you'll have no issue with those items


I couldn’t find any information on AirAsia regarding the two items you’re asking, so I checked other airlines. I found “tripod” on Philippine Airlines guidelines and confirm they are allowed on both carry-on and checked baggage. You can check it on this link under “Blunt Instrument” section of the article: https://www.philippineairlines.com/en/before-you-fly/baggage-information/security-reminder. However, the article also cautioned that some countries prohibit these items even in checked baggage. Please check your destination country about their restrictions on the items you’ll be bringing.

    It's usually the origin country, not the destination country, which dictates what can be in cabin or hold luggage or not for security reasons.
