Tip of the Week: 9/22/2012 Better Parts Bin

If you use small parts bins, you will love this tip! I got this tip a couple years ago from a Team Associated driver and thought is was brilliant. To make your compartmentalized storage bins actually capable of keeping small parts in the different compartments, fit the lids with craft foam. The foam is sold in sheets that are less than a dollar and are available in a variety of colors. Go for the 2mm thick foam. I cut it slightly oversized and then trim until the foam snuggly fits in the lid. Once done, you’ll be so glad you added the foam.

  1. Great idea! I have a lot of little bins like this and through the course of a racing season the small screws and fasteners are completely mixed together by the end of the season.
