When the U.S. Military contacted us for a way to organize and store oral and injectable medications in the field, we provided these tube vaults. Once we had them in our hands we discovered their uses were endless.
These storage tubes are food and pharmaceutical grade crush resistant (not much in life is "crush proof") polyethylene terephthalate (PET). They come with air tight, liquid tight tamper evident caps. They are also dishwasher safe and made in the usa.
(Container volume: 50ml or aprox. 2oz)
How our staff members are using them: some have already liberated for the following purposes: geocaching, sewing kits, detergent for those trips to the laundromat, flavored drink concentrates, thermometers, cotton swabs, mini survival capsule, the ultimate match safe, spare CR123 batteries, emergency money, tea, spices and sugar. Carry a double dose of cold medicine into the field leaving the big bottle at home. The possible uses are endless.
How is Uncle Sam using tube vaults? Military pharmacists insert glass medication bottles inside the vaults, they screw on the tamper evident seals and then issue them to the medics in the field. The pharmacists can even scan bar codes through the vault. Once the medication is in the field, the vaults protect the glass medication vials from dirt, dust and crushing. When the medic returns from the field, doing inventory of his pharmaceuticals is easy. If the tamper resistant seal is in place the medication wasn't used. If the seal is broken, it's been used and needs to be replaced. They can even rinse the dust off the outside without getting the inside contents moist. How will you use yours?
Tube Vault comes with 1 white tamper proof cap.
Also available International Orange tamper proof cap pack (10 Caps)
Got these for spare cells when I’m outdoors. Holds 18640/123’s perfect and very well protected.
Nice tubes, good price, very heavy duty but lightweight. Only concern I had was I ordered five, got five but one was smaller than the other four and the top was tapered, not a big deal since they will still work for my needs. I’m using them to hold meds in my IFAK. For reference one tube holds 180 Zyrtec allergy pills. The others will be getting various amounts of naproxen, ibuprofen, low and regular dose aspirin etc...
Filled with warm to hot water it makes a nice… pocket warmer. And a drink on a cold jog.
