    I did a cache in Unity yesterday that used one of those containers. I think it gives a better seal than a traditional plastic container.

    We've seen quite a few of these, and yes, I agree with Sudonim that they seem to keep a better seal than the usual (Sterilite/Dollar Store) plastic containers. (Can't beat Tupperware or an ammo can, though! )

    I have seen both tupperware and the lock n locks and I can say that the lock n locks are much better than the tupperware containers,at least from everyone I have run across so far,but that is just my opinion. My China School forest cache is in a Lock n lock and it is holding up much better than any tupperware container. You surely can't beat the ole ammo can for any reason though.

    I agree, they are defiantly better than a Rubbermaid or Gladware container, but for the same money or less I will take the ammo can any day. It is tough to beat $4 for a 30 cal ammo can. A Lock N Lock of a similar size is about $6 unless you buy a big set.

    UGH!! I can't believe so many of you folks like them. I can't say about caches, but at home in the kitchen for leftovers and other storage usages they suck! I can never get all four sides to seal, one or two at best. After they experience hot water when washing they warp and never are the same. I certainly wouldn't consider them for a cache, too much of a chance for leakage. Thats been my experience folks and for all you coin collectors......thats my two cents worth.
    What if the Hokey Pokey is what its all about?
    Have Fun & Be Safe!

    I only use 2 types of contaners for my caches anymore, I like the ammo cans unfortunatly not all locations will fit one of theese. For locations were I need a smaller can I use the lock and lock ones that I get over at walmart. They are roughly the same price as an ammo can but seem to hold up very well so far. I am really interested in seeing how they look this spring after going through the winter. The was I see it it is far cheeper to spend more $ on a good cache container cause it is cheaper in the long run when you consider the cost of maintaing and replaceing a cheeper container and all that is in it.


    And yes, I did learn my lesson from my first 2 attempts at placing caches useing gladware
