Cobalt Blue Tube Vaults
We have been selling the U.S. Military Tube Vaults for years as a way to organize and store oral and injectable medications in the field. These Tube Vauts 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.
We also still provide them in a Clear: Link Here
And now in Transclucent Cobalt Blue, that provides some visual identification. (Tube Vault internal volume: 40ml or 1.35oz, Interior 5.70” Deep x .65" Wide)
External 6" Length x 1.35" wide at head
Once we had them in our hands we discovered their uses were endless.
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, 4 ea. 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. Note: Cobalt Blue Tube Vault DOES NOT fit 18650 battery, The Clear Tube Vault does fit 18650 batteries.
How is Uncle Sam using tube vaults? Military Pharmacists insert glass medication bottles inside the vaults, then 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 per pack)
These are just like the clear ones only blue. The blue is not quite as see thru as the clear obviously. They are the same size, shape, and thickness as the clear ones.
They are great for small kits, or storing small parts. The thickness of the material provides some protection for whatever is inside of them. They can he sealed the first time you close them with the included caps, in case you need to know if someone has accessed whatever is inside.
Let me start off by saying that I LOVE this product and always try to purchase at least one when I place an order. I just wish they would come up with more colors for the caps.
What I like: I like the color. Variety is good. color coding EDC gear is essential for organizing it. So new colors, At least for me, are welcome
I like the length: I have always wished they were a bit longer. longer means more storage for items that are too long (think the Embassy Pens) More fire-starting, more fish hooks, more batteries, etc.
What I do not like: boils down to one thing, inside dimensions!! Lexan is very strong, so these tubes are almost unbreakable, almost. the strengeth of these tubes is making them as thick as possible without making them too bulky. Their other tubes are thick on the outside but taper as it gets closer to the cap, so the inside dimensions are constant from top to bottom.
These tubes, the tapering is on the inside, so be mindful. I put a PENNY at the top and it didn't get far. I wish CC would make a tube that will hold change, like at least QUARTERS from the top to bottom. I live in an area where change is still convenient for paying roadway tolls. I found an off-brand that is bigger, so I know it can be done, but I prefer to buy from County Comm.
Utilized for color coding content
That is binary, Function perfectly for this purpose.
