Ok, I just ordered an effect called Winston Freer Tile Puzzle and it will not include a case (Mr. Rogers ran out of them). So I would really appreciate suggestions for a nice case that would protect the effect and also allow me to carry additional close-up items such as cards, maybe a little bottle for John Bannons coin in bottle routine "Vacuum Packed" and misc. other fairly small items. I do not fall into the category of a case collector, I never got one of those cool looking aluminum cases but realize that this is what I now need. I just want to get one that will meet my needs. Thanks for any suggestions.

Mickey is correct. Their cases (at least the ones I have) are all velcro friendly on the inside. This is GREAT!!!!

A couple of my props are velcro-d to the lid. I also velcro a coin stack holder (made from leather) to the lid during performance to prepare for the miser's dream.

love the vaultz cases.

Frank,
I've become somewhat of a VAULTZ junkie! I think I now have at least one of everything they make! LOL

I don't know if Frank has yet but I recently bought the large VAULTZ hanging file box to house all my smaller VAULTZ cases!

LOL. I smell trouble!!!

The large Vaultz hanging file box is for my stand-up act.
I add to it the smaller hanging file box with the props to complete my kids show.

I love that they both have combo locks.

I'm a happy guy.

I've got a partitioning plan drawn up for the large file box that will maximize the space and include a lined space for my Dean's Box! I too am a happy box junkie!

I use a cardboard glass soda bottle carrier (4-pack) and velcro it to the inside of my large box. It's light-weight, sturdy, and perfect for carrying 4 different tricks. for me it's:
1. balloons/coinpurse/wand for bill-2-balloon
2. balloons for needleThruBalloon
3. Rope for c/r rope (or PN)
4. Magic potion.

In the past, I was frustrated with reset. I had a big mess in the box after the show. With this new divider idea, I can now put the prop back where it came from
every time.

And best of all, it virtually adds nothing to the overall weight of the box.
If necessary you could use more than one and you could also snip the divider between 2 of them if you needed a larger compartment.

Sometimes cheap and simple is best.
