Does anyone have a recommendation for a small seat belt cutter that would likely be deemed appropriate by TSA for carry on luggage?

I was looking for something I can have when taking short trips with my child and checking luggage is not necessary.

I had come across this one while looking online 

http://www.amazon.co...uto Escape Tool

 

and have seen that some of you own the Scharde Key Chain Pry Tool   http://www.amazon.co.../?tag=h1111-20   which also includes a seat belt cutter.

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Gerber also has a couple of belt cutters:

I guess you can always expect a problem with any edged item through airport security. Though these knives are little more than dedicated seat belt cutters/box openers, so if they ask say it's a safety device. And the hook knife at least is cheap enough to easily replace if confiscated.

This is what I carry  http://www.blackhawk.../HawkHook™.aspx .

It doesn't have really have a blade but again I'm not sure what the TSA allows, glad I don't travel by air any more.

I have Gerber Strap Cutter and had problems on airport at Hamburg.

Thanks for the HawkHook recommendation WallyGator, I just had one delivered yesterday.  

I don't know if I am going to chance it with carry on luggage, but it is certainly a seat belt cutter I would travel with if I were checking bags.

I have kept the Gerber Hinderer Rescue in my car for years but I like the seat belt cutting feature on the HawkHook better.  Plus it is much more EDC than the Gerber for when I travel or know I will be in cars other than my own.
