Inert or replica grenades arent allowed at all in an airport.  We’ll be sayin’ walk th’ plank if ye try t' brin' this… ye may be arrested.

*cough* Pirate talk is exhausting! This treasure chests contains an explosive device that awards the passenger with a civil penalty up to $13,333 and the head of an alligator. Maybe the passenger recently watched Happy Gilmore and thought he could prank us?

Replica and inert explosives or grenades aren't allowed in either carry-on or checked bags. When we find possible explosive devices, we call in an explosive specialist. And if that happens, it could lead to delays and missed flights. 
As for tick-tock…ahem… the crocodile or alligator head. While it’s good to go in your carry-on, please check with your airline policy as some may not allow them on board their aircraft.
