Introduction: Knex Tackle Box Instructions

Picture of Knex Tackle Box Instructions
This is a nice, simple tackle box I built. Its really sturdy and just big enough to fit all your fishing essentials. Its really easy to build and has movable dividers. It can also easily be modified to make it bigger. Enjoy the video!

Step 1: The Base

The base. Pretty simple.

Step 2: The Sides

The sides. A little tricky.

Step 3: The Front and Back

The front and back are pretty simple. Just don't get them mixed up. The front pictures are 1-5. The back pictures are 6-10.

Step 4: The First Shelf

The first shelf is a little complicated. All the Y-clips are there so that the hooks won't fall through. If you don't have that many Y-clips you can cut out a 8 1/2" by 4 1/8" piece of thin cardboard (like off a cereal box) and poke holes in it lined up with the holes on the white and black 8-way connectors. You'll have to take of the tan clip as seen in the first picture if you won't to do the cardboard.  

Step 5: The Second Shelf

The second shelf is almost like the first one, but with some slight differences.

Step 6: The Lid

The lid, simple as well.

The handles, separators, and supports are necessities for your tackle box.

Step 8: Attaching the Sides, Front, and Back

Now its time to start putting things together.

Step 9: Attaching the Shelves and Lid

Attaching the shelves and lid is pretty simple. Just follow the pictures.

Step 10: Attaching the Handles, Separators, and Supports

Attaching the handles, separators, and supports is pretty easy, but the handles might be a little hard to snap in.

Step 11: Finished!

Now that your finished its time to throw all your fishing tackle in and get fishing! p.s. Please comment if you have any questions.

only problem with this tackle box is i cant just throw my bait in the bottem like i do with my real one

knexsim (author)2011-11-20

so is this bacily a tool box??

thebriguy (author)2011-10-20

Nice work. I LOVE the box, but I wouldn't want to use it for fishing because the hooks would get caught in all the openings... It would have to be lined some way, maybe clear plexiglass(?)

KneXtreme (author)thebriguy2011-10-21

Thanks. The solution to the hooks getting stuck is explained in step 4. But I guess Plexiglas would work to.

Excellent job. I'd only change about 5 percent of it, I'd design it so that no parts are removable. If you were to actually take this fishing, you might lose them. I think you should work on a new latch for opening it in particular. I give it 4.5 stars to accommodate the room for improvement.

I was thinking the exact same thing! I love the overall look of the tackle box and then colors are great together. It seems like you could actually use it but I would be worried about losing pieces.
Being able to remove the dividers is great but if you could make it so that they actually attach to the box it would be even better.
I like the way that the rods on the front keep the box closed and lock into each other but when you unlock it both rods could slip out so some sort of stopper there could help.

Thanks to you and Oblivitus for the advice.

That's pretty cool, even though I have no real use for a tackle box. Great job!
