How in the hell do screws in her hand lead to a cavity search?
Through the application of hyperbole.
The screws will set off the walk-through metal detectors (WTMD) requiring a pat-down. Passengers with implants which set off the WTMD are encouraged to request the ATD scanner for screening instead of the WTMD. The ATD is less likely to alarm on the implants as it is looking for items concealed on the person's body or in their clothes. The ATD does require that everything be removed from pockets, and apparently hair, including belts and shoes so you lose many of the benefits of PreCheck screening.
Not literally... that's what she calls it because the first couple of times they took her in the back room to pat her down...
Hand got stuck?
Whew, you had me worried it was getting even more draconian than I thought.
Now it cost a lot of money to have your hair look like the guy in the first part of this commercial.
I have PreCheck but apparently got selected for 'random' screening through the ATD when the metal detector flagged, I think they called it USP, anyway they didn't make me take off my shoes or belt, and I already empty my pockets, but I'm guessing that my shoes are why the scanner(ATD) flagged my ankle to be checked.
