Floats moving about in box?

How do you match guys stop your floats rolling about free in your box? My draws are slim, so you cannot put a float tube in them. I just don't want to damage them in transit?

Ahaha, that's what they do is it Peter. Bless you, bet I can find some of that stuff in my local diy shop, or even use pipe lagging I've tons in the loft. Oh dear, another project Misses B.

Most of my floats are slim-bodied (quills or crystal wagglers), so I put them in a rolled up zip-seal freezer bag, which fits nicely into one of the narrow trays in my tackle box.

If you know any conservatory fitters, try and get some of the thicker polycarbonate sheets, ideal for floats and fit
in the drawers of most seat boxes,

It's not the answer you're after, but I keep my floats in tubes, and carry the tubes in my holdall. I keep the precious drawer space - more drawers = more weight - for other items.

I have some in tubes for roaming and such but most (and there are many) simply sit in two shallow/wide float compartments in my tackle box where they've been rolling about for years with little sign of wear, but I do give the odd one or two a fresh dip of paint occasionally.

Here is a thought . . . . . the more floats you put in the drawer then the less chance there is that they will move around . . . . seems like a win-win to me ;)
