Following an article about iPhone cases that would not be able to clear airport security, Surf Patch offers their comments on the news.

On December 10, 2012, travel company Surf Patch commented on a Cult of Mac article by Mike Elgen that listed five iPhone cases that would hinder your ability to fly clear of airport security.

According to the Cult of Mac article, “One of the coolest or craziest categories of iPhone case, depending on your perspective, is the kind that provide personal self defense.” The article states that all of the self defense iPhone cases mentioned in the article, provide at least one other function than just self defense.

The article mentions that one iPhone case doubles as a stun gun, deliver 650,000 volts of electricity as a form of self defense. Another iPhone case discussed in the article, Task One, “has 16 tools, including a knife, saw-blade, screwdrivers, pliers, wire cutters, allen wrenches, wire strippers, a ruler and a bottle opener.”

The other iPhone cases listed in the article are pepper spray and brass knuckle forms of self defense iPhone accessories. The article warns that most likely none of these cases listed will be able to make it past airport security, as they are all weapons.

Travel company Surf Patch knows the needs and uses for self defense, but urges people to keep weapons like these out of airports in order to fly clear of airport security. “These cell phone cases are good for self defense, and important for some people, however keeping them out of airports will benefit everyone in being able to clear airport security in a safe and efficient manner,” said world traveler Takara Licausi.
