A couple weeks ago I was standing in the security line in Hartford. The guy in front of me had a small pouch on a coiled cable dangling out of his shoulder bag. I mentioned it to him and he assured me that it was "part of [his] system." I watched him as he went through the security screening and came to the conclusion that his system sucks.
I know different people have different systems for getting through security but as the saying goes, the proof is in the pudding. If your system does not speed you through security, then it doesn't work.
The number one thing I notice is that everyone stands in line at security and shuffles along. When they finally get to the screening area, that's when they start preparing for security. Then they complain about wasting time in line. To me, it is obvious that the time spent waiting in line can easily be used to streamline the process. After 687,000 miles of traveling, here is the system I use to zip through security:

I guess I just gotta pack less, so I'll have that convenient space in the pockets of my backpack carry-on to squeeze my keys and phone in to avoid needing a tray. Never needing to retie my shoes helps, though.

i agree, i especially hate the people who 'didn't realize' they need to remove their shoes, etc etc...i wonder how the new system at midway is working out (different lines for experienced vs. newbie travelers)

I bought a Titanium watch last year when I went to Japan and since it's non-ferrous, I did not have to remove it walking through the magnetometer (metal detector). My belt also went through fine. That is, until they put those stupid new body scanners in. Now they require you to remove everything, even your wallet and papers from your pockets. If these new body scanners are supposed to be better and provide more details to the TSA, why do I have to take off more stuff? Shouldn't they be able to see that I have a watch on and that it's just a regular watch? And shouldn't they be able to see through my wallet? Also, how is a full body scanner more secure if you can pick a security line that doesn't use it (you can do this in Cincinnati and Hartford)? Silly. Luckily, I've notice some airports have stopped using their full body scanners, hopefully because enough people have complained or the TSA has realized how silly they are.
