Taking something on a plane that may be mistaken as a weapon?

I have a baton that I’m planning on taking to Florida with me. I have to take a plane on the way back. However, our majorette line has been in trouble for taking them on planes before— And they had regular STAR batons (I have a Grey baton, which is much, much heavier and has a different appearance than a STAR)
How do I prevent losing this thing in security? My baton is something pretty important to me.

Explain to security that you have it and explain its significance to you. Also state that you will not harm anyone with it, it’s just an activity.

Just put it in a wine box (how big is a baton, ive never seen one so this might not work)

It’s metal, and it wouldn’t fit in a wine box
