    I really like these rails too. For a little more protection, I cobbled together a cardboard cap that goes over them and the entire faceplate. Here's a short post at my blog giving a better description and pictures: https://coyoteswamp.blogspot.com/2019/01/two-easy-extras-for-yaesu-ft-817etc.html Apart from the controls on the front, the rest of the radio is pretty tough, so it goes in a gallon ziplock bag for some scratch and moisture protection, then the whole thing goes into a pack. So far so good.

    Another question, will a radio such as my ft-818 catch the attention of TSA? More than a laptop or iPad?

    Any more attention than the full body scan and pat down that I'm usually subject to? Nope. You'll have to take it out of the case just like a laptop. The agent might ask "Whats this?" They've pretty much seen it all.
