Our aluminum canisters with clear glass pull–off lids are cool. The smaller canisters are aluminum–colored, a set of (20) 1–1/4” dia x 3/4” deep in a 6–1/2” x 5–1/4” x 7/8” lightweight aluminum box with a hinged lid. When the box is shut, a layer of foam padding inside the lid presses down on the canisters, keeping them securely closed. If you need slightly larger canisters, and a cardboard box will work instead of a carrying case, try our colorful display of anodized tins. They are packaged in sets of (12) and come in great assorted colors and are 2” dia x 7/8” deep. Each is an ideal carrying case for paints, many different screws, or other sets of small items or quantities that must remain separate. Prices are per set.

Fill 'Er Up
It's a nice, empty black box waiting for you to fill it with pens, batteries, earbuds, cords, drill bits, lures, chargers or all the other things you can never find. Measures 7" x 2-1/2" x 1-3/8" deep in matte plastic with a push-button latch. Unlike most, it won't flop over on its back when open. Pull out the plastic insert (it used to hold a pen set) and you're ready to go. Ignore the "Presalite" logo on the top, or obscure it with a permanent black marker.
