Modular Plastic Storage Box - Small (10 pack)

Face it, if you keep this up your workbench is going to turn into a galaxy of small parts with no place for anything and nothing in its place. Okay, so maybe that just happens to some of us, but everyone could use a little organization and that's exactly what this product offers.

These modular storage boxes snap together so you can keep all of your parts separated and together all at once. As if that isn't cool enough, the transparent lids on these storage modules are also spring loaded so you can access parts one-handed while trying to hold a soldering iron/screwdriver/whatever. Simply pull the latch and the lid pops right open! It's hard to overstate how neat these little boxes really are.

These come in a variety of sizes and this is a pack of 10 small storage cubes that can be individually snapped apart and reattached. Of course they're compatible with all other sizes of modular storage box so you can build custom panels of storage compartments. Take that, clutter!

Note: These boxes are not ESD-safe. If you have sensitive parts to store, you might want to keep them in their static bags!

  • Outside: 25x30x22mm
  • Inside: ≈18x17.5x18mm

    This company makes ESD safe versions of these as well. Is there any reason you guys don't carry them?

  • bobdabiulder / about 8 years ago / 1

    I take things apart... A lot. I want these so I can put screws, capacitors, and resistors in them. Would these work?

  • LightManCA / about 11 years ago / 8

    How about a combo pack? $12 gets you... 2 packages of smalls, 2 mediums, and large?

  • Greeeg / about 11 years ago / 3

    Just be aware that there is a small amount of tolerance with the lids. 0402 resistors and small can fit through this gap. I filmed an example of this: youtube

    You have some seriously shiny coins! Is your photographer a collector or something?

    • JGuthridge / about 11 years ago / 3

      Looks to me like what is referred to as a "double-struck proof" They are not cheap, but they are the most accurate depiction of legal coins as can be found.

      They also photograph well, and are just plain nifty.

    • We just buy non-circulated ones for the pictures.

    How many 1/4 watt resistors can I reasonably fit in one of these?

    • M-Short / about 9 years ago / 1

      1/4W PTH? I wouldn't recommend it, this size is too small (try the medium). These are about 1" in each direction (the medium are about 2.5" long)

    These boxes made me think of another neat storage box: Really Useful Boxes® Mini. They come in a number of sizes: Link. Unfortunately, they aren't the cheapest, maybe something Sparkfun would consider carrying to complement these boxes.

    I find them too small to be useful, you can't even fit a nickle inside! The bigger ones are much better.

    These things are great they really embrace my obsessive compulsive desire to put things in tiny boxes. A couple of suggestions first you will need labels. Second thing rubber feet or some such thing, if you stack them on top of each other they tend to slide right off and if you are unlucky onto the floor causing all the tiny lids pop open.

    Too bad they aren´t ESD/EPA safe.

  • TimZaman / about 11 years ago / 1

    I can highly recommend these. I have around a hundred for my SMD parts! Gotta say that the price is relatively hefty..

  • singerng / about 11 years ago / 1

    Can these be hung or be sideways (so that they are vertical) on a shelf?

    • check the pictures. they have no formal 'mounting' holes or anything. but that doesn't stop you from attaching velcro, double-sided tape, or whatever else you need to get them mounted the way you want.
