How to Keep Something Hidden From a Metal Detector

Keep Something Hidden From a Metal Detector

While metal detectors in public places may provide added security, many consider them to be a nuisance and an invasion of privacy. Accidentally setting such alarms off can be a very embarrassing and uncomfortable experience. Read this article and learn how to prevent your personal belongings from triggering metal detectors.

Wrap the object that you wish to hide from the metal detector in an asbestos sheet.

Place the wrapped object in a bag so that the asbestos sheet will be out of view and not arouse suspicion.

Walk through the metal detector.


Asbestos can still be bought from certain countries around the world including Canada, China and Russia. Global trading sites such as Alibaba.com and tootoo.com offer opportunities to purchase the material.


  • The more powerful the metal detector, the thicker the asbestos covering has to be. Asbestos can be hazardous to your health if not handled properly.
