As of 2016, styles of plastic carrying cases include ArtBin's Quick View carrying case, MyGift's two-tier carrying case, Sterilite's Layer Stack carrying case and Akro-Mils' 09912 CLPUR 12-inch carrying case. All of these cases are made of a translucent plastic that allows users to identify their contents without having to open them. They are also stackable with similar products.
ArtBin's Quick View carrying case is made of acid-free polypropylene. It has a deep base and opens like a briefcase, using lockable sliding latches. Both the top and bottom have an easy-grip, molded-in handle that come together to form one handle when the case is closed.
MyGift's two-tier carrying case features two interior extendable trays and a large bottom storage compartment. The trays come with dividers to help keep items organized. The case has a gray hinged handle on the top lid and a gray latch lock that prevents the case from spilling its contents if users drop it.
Sterilite's Layer stack carrying case features three tiers of storage that lock together. The top tier is a translucent blue and contains one organizer insert, and the two bottom tiers are clear-colored.
Akro-Mils' 09912 CLPUR 12-inch carrying case is made of a chemical-resistant plastic and designed to fit into drawers. It features a single storage compartment without any dividers, a hinged purple handle on the top lid and a clear latch that snaps shut.
