Bike pump as a carry on?

Hello all, I just ran into a major dilemma. I cannot fit my bike pump into a suitcase. I was wandering if anyone knows if I can carry the bike pump as a carry on onto a plane. If anyone can tell I would be very grateful.

Thanks
Zach

There was a big thread on that this morning. There was a general agreement on yes, but a lot of times it depends on the airline/airport.

Personally, we carry ours on.

Okay sorry I didn’t see the thread but thank you!
