    Default Uni-Tray II

    Does anyone use a Uni-Tray II for their thread and do you find it worth the money??

    I was looking at them today and I thought they were pretty neat.

    That is neat. If I didn't have a pretty good set-up for thread in my travel case (a Plano tackle box) I'd get one of those.

    I have two of them. Over time, the hinges will wear out, and the latch will slip. I think that it is a bit overpriced at $30ish retail.

    It seems like that would be an easy project to put together for less than $30.

    I'm a huge fan of the old Dewitt boxes with the stainless steel hinges. This particular size is perfect for the travel box for floss and thread:

    I will never buy anything that has plastic folding hinges like that. I got fooled into that scam once and I learnt my lesson. I bought two "bug luggage" boxes for about 20 each and they lasted two seasons before the hinges began to tear apart; once it started it was a matter of 20 more open/close and the two halves came apart.

    That's what I love about the Dewitt boxes: their hinges are indestructible, and the boxes themselves pretty much are. They can really have an odd odor, though. LOL, I'm not kidding.

    Hope your dog doesn't decide to wag his tail by that precarious pyramid of prized thread holders!!
