Pubs , clubs or organizations selling potato chips may have some issues exposing them on the shelf. The potato chips get lost in the back of the cardboard box. When the box is full there's almost no issue but when you're almost out of stock this instructable helps You out. The solution contains adding a stretcher system in the box that keeps on pushing the potato chips to the front. Practical issue solved and it's organized properly.
What do we need ?

Step 1: Emptying the Box & Removing Front
Buy a cardboard box of Potato chips of your choice ( including chips). Remove the chips, leaving an empty box and the front part removed as in the picture below.
Step 2: Preparation Stretcher
Cut the old stretcher ( you can find these in bicycle shops) into two equal parts of 18mm long ( stretcher in non-stretched state ).
Step 3: Preparing Cardboard Bar
Cut out a rectangular at the back of the box. Size is not important, although it has to be quite large.
Step 4: Make a Piece of Cardboard of the Same Size
Now cut out a piece of cardboard from a leftover. This needs to be the same size as the piece from the previous step.
Step 5: Squares
Also cut out four squares of the same size ( approximately 50mm to 50mm ). You'll need 18(always in multiples of 3 ) ! Creating three stacks of six high.
