Picture of Fishing tackle tube (more pictures added)

This is a tubular tackle kit with two compartments. It is not designed to hold a lot of gear. I made this with my son in mind. It has thick walls and JB Weld holding it all together. The first was made to be slung over the shoulder, The second was made to be attached to a backpack.

Step 1: The Parts and Pieces

Picture of The Parts and Pieces


- One ABS 2" x 2' pipe ( cut into four pieces: one- 13 1/2", one- 6", two- 1/4")

- Two ABS 2" coupling

- Two ABS 2" cleanout (female thread/ male slip)

- Two ABS 2" cleanout plug (male thread)

- Two ABS 2" cap hub

- Two wire lock pins 1/4" x 2" or two I bolts with 2 washers, lock washer and nut for each


The sling is made of tubular webbing and bits I found lying around.

The storage containers are 1 5/8" screw together, there are 18 with one lid for the top.

I added three carbineers, two of them are lashed together with a cobra weave.

I also had the camo spray paint and what boy doesn't want something with camo paint.

I had some foam from a pelican case that I used to cushion the bottom and the top of the long side.

Step 2: Cut, Clean and Dry Fit

Picture of Cut, Clean and Dry Fit

1. Cut the pipe into the 13 1/2", 6", and two 1/4" pieces. To get a straight cut on the pipe I used tape wrapped around. The tape should line up perfectly when it is wrapped straight with no wrinkles. Use a file and sand paper to smooth the edges. The end of the file can be used to remove any large pieces.

2. Using a fine grade sand paper, I used 120 grit, to rough up the joint areas. This will allow the JB Weld to better adhere to the surface.

3. Next, fit all the pieces together to be sure that they all fit together properly.

That paint job is so cool!

start with the color you want the least of. reapply tape for each new color.

If you did not put the clean out on the long side, you could use it like a quiver and the other for survival gear.
