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)
These are great for small parts or screws and to keep in your tool bag.
These are so great. I travel a lot and use them for shampoo, body wash, etc. Hold enough for 3-4 days worth. The volume amount is TSA apporved (though one over-eager TSA agent confiscated a couple from me). I have also used them to hold spices when backpack camping. Super durable.
I use these to store a cigar if I don’t smoke the whole thing, keeps it from drying out. I also use them to store ground machine parts that would rust easily such as centers for a lathe or pin chucks that are made out of carbon steel. Couple squirts of WD40, drop the parts in and they stay rust free for months.
