In this post (http://kfs.infopop.cc/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=418607442&f=220603834&m=3596082195), I was complaining about how my planos were mixed up with my other stuff... Well I came up with a solution that can be used with milkcrates and I promised to name it after JoeB and recurve57... so here it is...

Here it is in use. Make sure the side with the double hooks clip at the top and bottom of the Plano and the single hook side is located a the center of the Plano. When you replace a box, slide it between (one of) the remaining box(es) and the milkcrate.
Cool. But I still question why it is that your using a milk create in the first place, especially if you are storing small items that will be lost if (when?) you ever tip over? Why not put a plano box back there?

http://kfs.infopop.cc/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifHay Ed and Joe Great Idea http://kfs.infopop.cc/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif But Try This for milk Crates, Most all SUVS and Minie Vans have rear cargo Nets, held up and across the rear, they can be cut to size and fitted over the Crate, and Fastened to the Crate ,with the Bungy thats already a part of the net plus the Hooks, And think of this if you send the bungy over to ED he will Fuse the ends for you with his Method, http://kfs.infopop.cc/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif Or wait if you want it this year Use a Match but fray the nylon back cut out the rubber twist the nylon end and Melt it slowly with a Match, http://kfs.infopop.cc/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif OK http://kfs.infopop.cc/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifDING you just gave me a Great Idea, More on it Latter http://kfs.infopop.cc/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ BillW

Another idea - Yakima sells a cargo net for around $25 you can stretch across a tank well securing your milk crate.

Oh, tipping over is a different story, cause we were just talking about organization in the milkcrate. I have, but not yet installed a lexan top (ala Home Depot) that will have zip tie hinges and velcro closure to ensure the little stuff stays inside.
I was also thinking about switching over to one of those storage boxes with the clam shell tops so I have less to rinse off at the end of the day.

Mrsinbad, I love the simplicity and elegance of your solution.
EASIER thing to do is to go to the mortor cycle shop and get the small bungi that they sell. Comes with the hooks and can streach a milk carton or a laundry basket. Under 10$ IIRC.

JimD, welcome aboard if no one has said so yet! I started off stretching the bungee straignt across the boxes. The problem was the they slid under the bungee and I was back to my disorganized box. So I had to control the bottom of the boxes as well as the top of the boxes. I suppose you can use any bungees you already have, but make sure the hooks are not the cheap chrome plated steel. If I remember, the total cost for mine was about $4.00 to $5.00 (couple of bucks for the end clips, maybe buck fifty for the middle hook, and haf a buck for the bungee).

http://kfs.infopop.cc/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifYes Ed but this one is for free, Just turn the milk crate over so your STUFF can only Fall Down not OUT http://kfs.infopop.cc/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif BillW
