Introduction: PICKPOX

Box Contest 2017

Runner Up in the
Box Contest 2017

I loved small things, but i hate when everything is difficult to find. specially for my hobby to collected small electronics component. Usually after build some project all small parts goes around my table and other box when i need again become disaster. But now after have pickpox everything is under control :).

Step 1: Material

All material is super cheap and easy we can find anywhere

1. Toothpick

2. Plastic bag with clip (at beginning use for medicine )

3. Wooden clip

4. Sheet of wood, thickness 3mm (i use balsa wood, for ease to cut)

5. Glue

Step 2: Make the Box

We need to measure inside the box, we need to discover

1. lenght of toothpick is 67mm , the widht of the box need smaller

2. plastic bag with clip is Lenght 80mm x widht50mm, we give little bit tolerance for the box

So conclusion is

1. Box size : Lenght200mm x Widht 52mm x Height 83mm

cut straight by common cutter :

1. 200mm x 83 mm = 2 pcs

2. 52mm x 83 mm = 2 pcs

3. Bottom part 19mm x 200mm = 2pcs

I make cavity / hole on bottom part, first i need dry air circulation inside the box because my country have high of humidity, second if there any small parts fall into the box i don't need to take out all the bags just raise the box we can find underneath.

Assembly and glue all part gently

Step 3: Pick Bag

So put toothpick inside the clip spring take the fat one so we get not loosen hanger. take the label if you want more description and more professional storage management.

Step 4: Thats All

Finally my component is neatly managed in little storage box hang with the bag on toothpick called PICKPOX, thank you for read and do not hesitate to share what your pickpox use for

    Simple, basic, functional and easy to make and use.

    I REALLY like this kind of thing :)

    Thanks for this. :)

    If you staggered the pegs side to side you would get some extras in


    aaa yes yes thanks for your idea, noted

    It took me a minute to see your suggestion, but you're so right!

    Add a photo of that. If you hesitated in seeing it, so will others. Show them.


    :) will be goo

    To save a little space you could use your toothpick to poke a hole in the sides of the bag just under the zipper and hang it from that. Should hold good as long as you remember to seal the zip good before hanging.

    You could use the pop-up flags as labels for the bags.

    You could use skewers to be able to hang wider bags up to a point.


    wow is brilliant idea, thank you tbt10f, is pleasure if you can share other pickpox will be interesting :)

    Adding divots or detents is a good idea. Also, why not offset or stagger clothespins to the left and then right and left again, like filie tabs?.Reading labels would be a cinch amd mmake snatching the wroing one, or two at a time, less likely.


    nice idea obillio thanks, i will keep noted for further pickpox
