What sets of airport metal detectors? Do zippers on jeans sound the alam. I do not particularly want someone to notice my diaper.
Because getting caught and questioned about why we are wearing a diaper is one of the biggest fears among the *B/DL community?
It's also one of the biggest thrills, but it's mostly a major fear.
I have worn diapers on planes several times and have never had a problem. As I am incontinent I really don't have a choice. The first time I did it I was worried about being found out, but nothing happened. I was just really careful to take off all the metal I was wearing, belt, money, watch, everything. A zip is very unlikely to set off a detector. I have got a metal plate in my fibula and several screws elsewhere and they have never set off the detectors, so i think it is very unlikely that something so small would, although I am sure they can screen to some extent for medical implants.
The main thing is, if it is worrying you that much and you don't have to wear diapers on the plane then just don't. I have no choice, because while I can sometimes manage to hang on, I certainly can't when you can't get up coz the seatbelt light is showing.
Good luck in whatever you decide.
It depends on how sensitive they are set. Typically, no. Even if it did, the worst thing that would happen is they'd wave the precision handheld scanner over it, realize it was just your zipper, and let you through.
Aren't you supposed to carry something with you saying you have metal implants incase it were to go off?
