The Slot-Lock™ Container is Packnet’s proprietary reusable container which uses no hardware (nails or screws) for assembling the crate sides and top and securing to the base. By utilizing a slot-and-tab design, the crate can easily be hand assembled and then secured using plastic or metal bands around the exterior. The crate also does not need to be fully disassembled to access the interior.

Features and benefits:

  • Slot-and-tab interlocking assembly – no screws/nails/clips
  • ISPM-certified and heat-treated for domestic or international shipment
  • ISTA3B tested and approved
  • Extremely strong, stackable
  • Knocks down flat for storage
  • Durable and reusable
  • Quick assembly and tear down
  • Standard and custom sizes
  • Customization options for cushioning and storage
