Intro: Storage Case
Tired of having things rattling about in your bag?
I found an tin box that a watch came in that was just about the right size to keep some things in my bag rather than it all rattling about at the bottom of my laptop rucksack. The problem is that the case kept popping open and me being right back to square one!
So, using some gaffer or duct tape and velcro cable ties, I was able to hinge and securely keep the case closed in my bag.
I never used any exact measurements, I just guesstimated the length of tape.
I layed out 2 lengths (approx 6") and slightly overlapped them.
Then layed another length over the join, sticky side down.
- This stops the tape from sticking to edge of the case.
Stick the tape to the top of lid of the case then put the lid on the base.
Again, guesstimate how much space will be needed to allow the lid to open and not be restricted by the sides of the base then stick to the bottom of the tin.
Measure and cut the velcro cable ties for the top and tape to the lid of the case.
Repeat this with the base and then re-trim any excess velcro
Add your bits and bobs, close and seal, chuck in your bag then away you go!
And safe in the knowledge that nothing will be rattling about in your bag
