Crunch box stiffener

Postby south.texas.dead.i » Fri Dec 07, 2012 9:50 pm

I got a fade crunch box and its annoying how the bag kind of collapses in whenever I'm carrying it, is there something that I can put in the main compartment that will keep the bag rigid and discs upright? Thanks

I have one and can't say I've seen the same thing happening, but you could build a small frame out of PVC pipe or, perhaps better (as even 1/2" PVC would take up a good bit of room in a Crunch Box), build a frame out of some small wooden dowel rods or something. Or that plastic "cardboard" material. Or something like that.

Yeah my crunchbox doesn't collapse. I think the newer ones are flimsier. Mine is a few years old and it is holding up nicely. but yeah small pvc pipe could be a good solution. search on DGCR, they have many bag mod threads.

Like Iacas said there is a product that I think is named cloroplast, it looks like a piece of cardboard but it's made out of plastic. If you cut a piece and lay it in the bottom of the bag so the flutes run from side to side it will make it so the bottom of the bag won't bend in the middle. If you go to a store to look for it you can usually find blank pieces in the section that sells signs.

That sucks to hear. I have one of the older ones and mine has never collapsed on me. Mine has been a great little bag.
