Most people are familiar with Pelican Cases. They are of course some of the toughest cases out there, but they tend to be fairly expensive as well. For a consumer spending a little extra on a name brand case like Pelican, might not be a big deal, but for OEM applications an extra $20-$30 per case will add up quickly when you are purchasing hundreds or thousands of cases. Any manufacturer knows there is a fine line between saving money yet still offering a quality product. You can purchase inexpensive cases to save money, but if they are breaking all the time or your industry simply expects better quality then you will run into trouble. On the flip side if the cases you are purchasing are excellent quality, but the price is really expensive you may price yourself out of the market or eat into your profits.

This one is more of a life hack. If you travel all the time with expensive equipment and want to ensure nothing is stolen or broken by the TSA buy a starting pistol. You know, the ones that are fired directly in the air to signify the start of a race. Track and field events use them all the time. They can be obtained for cheap and don’t require any background checks or paperwork however they are classified by the airlines as a firearm. That may sound scary, but in reality we can use the airline’s rule in our favor. Once you have the starter pistol throw it into your luggage. It doesn’t matter if your luggage contents consist of expensive camera equipment, a microscope or a delicate drone.
Once you check your bag in, declare the firearm with the clerk. A special inspector trained in firearms will check it out and verify the gun is safe. Then they will mark your case appropriately so no other TSA agents will be allowed in after that point. You will then be instructed to lock the case. At that point throw any lock on it. The lock doesn’t even have to be TSA approved. Any lock will do. In fact use a heavy duty non TSA Masterlock if possible which will make your luggage that much more secure.
So there you have it. Protect anything you have of value from the TSA when flying by purchasing a starting pistol. Please note: Airlines require your firearm to be in a hard-sided container so don’t try this trick with your soft sided luggage.
Protect sensitive equipment from static discharge
Anti-Static foam (also known as anti-stat foam) is a form of foam which has a chemical agent that will not create a static charge when rubbed against itself. The foam will allow static charges to pass through it in essence protecting your sensitive equipment & not passing the charge into your items. Anti-stat foam is dyed pink for visual identification & generally cannot be bought in other colors without a minimum volume order. Why pink? It has been like that since the beginning of time & no one really knows.
Remember this: when creating an anti-stat insert which will fit inside of a case to use anti-stat foam in the lid as well. People often forget this and will use regular convoluted foam in the lid rather than anti-static foam. This will defeat the purpose altogether of using anti-static foam in the base.
Now for the big question… Should you buy your foam insert with anti-static foam or not? Generally speaking if you are not sure then the answer is usually no. With that being said if you are not sure, but the foam is within your budget & you are putting sensitive electronic equipment in the case then go for it as it can’t hurt.
