Plug Crate

Rate this topic

5 posts in this topic

After seeing this idea for plug storage I decided to make one up.

 

I used the 2" central vacuum tubing and 3" square PVC fence post material to accommodate the larger plugs. I used clear silicone caulk to glue all the tubes into one big assembly.

 

In order to avoid having the plug hooks hang up on the crate bottom should one fall in, I put a layer of aluminum window screen material under the tube assembly.

 

Can't wait to put it into service.

 

Thanks SOL for the good design idea.

<IMG class=inlineimg title=Default border=0 alt=Default> Plug File

I have serched the forums for plug storage and have found some really good examples of home made plug boxes, however none of them were what I was looking for. I wanted a box that could hold about 25 plugs to supplement my plug bag and could easily be tossed in my or someone elses rig without being obtrusive, kind of like the SC plug box. 200 clams wasn't happening so I came up with this... hanging file box 11''x11''x14'' $10.84, 1/6'' thick plexiglass panels cut with opposing slots to form a grid $17.58. Portable storage for at least 30 plug for less than 30 bucks.attachment.php?attachmentid=217565&d=123

REELISTIC340,

 

The central vac tubes were 10" long, therefore I could get 9 tubes out of an 8' length.

 

I was surprised how much tubing it took as they add up quickly.

 

Anyway it took (4) 8' lengths & the cost per 8' length was $5.75 from my local electrical supply house. So the total was $23.00.

 

Hope that helps.

 

BTW I removed all of the side grid work of the milk crate to lessen the weight as it is plenty sturdy without them.
