As a service tech, my van is full of parts.   At first I thought of clear plastic boxes to put on the racks.   This works well in the summer, but living on the tundra, it is not so great when it is -20F outside and you are trying to pry open plastic covers.   They either break or are difficult to get open.   Those plastic storage units are spendy to replace.  Here is the answer to some of my problems.

Step 1:

1.  Cardboard box
2.  4 washers
3.  2 screws
4.  2 nuts
5.  Twine or string
6.  Awl or punch
7.  Nail polish

Lovely! The closing method is a fantastic idea. Simple methods are far better than the complex ones!
