SPECIALTY STORAGE

We’ve spent over 65 years creating niche storage options so every tool, no matter how small or how large, has its place. Whether your passion takes you to land or sea, casting or boating, hunting or target shooting, there’s a Plano® product to meet your storage needs.

WATERPROOF

Water is an unavoidable reality for outdoor enthusiasts. Dependable zippers, latches, Velcro and other sturdy closures resists water, while some products eliminate the possibility for leaks entirely with watertight Dri-Loc® O-ring seals and cam-action latches. Our waterproof products are submersible for up to 30 minutes in 1 meter of water.

MADE IN THE USA

Plano Molding Company remains based in its namesake town of Plano, Illinois. Americans celebrate the outdoors, and we celebrate them. We’re proud to support American industry and jobs by manufacturing many of our products right here in the United States.

FISHING

STOWAWAY® UTILITY BOXES

Tackle organization can get out of control fast, so we standardized a system to make sure you don’t lose track of a single hook. Our innovative line of StowAway® utility boxes comes in dozens of configurations and a standardized set of four specific dimensions: 3700 Series, 3600 Series, 3500 Series and 3400 Series. That means you can always count on StowAway® utility boxes to have the same perfect fit every time.

HYDRO-FLO™

Fishing gear is going to get wet, but you don’t want your gear to drown. Our Hydro-Flo™ bags and cases are designed to drain water out of the bottom, allowing you to rinse lures and dry your bag easier than ever before.

UTILI-TACKLE™ RAIL SYSTEM

The Utili-Tackle™ Rail System provides secure storage for extra gear like pliers, carabiners, clips and more. But what you’ll really love is its ability to strap down to your boat or kayak using a bottom rail that allows unobstructed access to all your gear.

HUNTING

PILLARLOCK®

This patented system (U.S. Patents 456,133 and 6,571,946) utilizes “pillars” on the interior of the case to connect both sides for balanced stability. This means any pressure on the outside will be met with crushproof resistance inside from the pillars counteracting the pressure.

MIL-SPEC

Our Mil-Spec cases are certified by an accredited test facility to meet military specifications per MIL-STD—810G. These cases have endured immersion, vibration, dust and transit drops. They can handle more wear and tear than any other product in our line. Put them to your test and see what they can do.

AIRLINE APPROVED

Protect Your Passion™ wherever you go thanks to airline-approved cases that safely make it through checked bag security screenings. You can also trust that no matter how rough the journey from the check-in desk to baggage claim, your gear will remain safely stowed inside its durable, foam-padded home.

INTERNAL LASH-DOWN MOUNTS

Putting your firearm, bow or crossbow in a case is step one. But once it’s in that case, you need the peace of mind that it’s staying put. Internal lash-down mounts with durable, Velcro straps ensure your gear doesn’t shift in transit.

PRESSURE RELEASE VALVE

Altitude changes are no problem for our cases with a pressure release valve. This feature automatically equalizes pressure inside the case to match outdoor conditions, with no extra work needed on your end.
