I have some cases I think will be great, but I need to organize the insides so things aren't bouncing all over. What do you install to keep props in place, organized and protected?

Thanks--

Well, my case came with dividers, but there are many things that you can do. I personally would go to my local craft store and pick up some thick foam rubber. Then I would be able to cut it to perfectly fit everything I wanted.

Good luck,
Dan

I use everything from cut-down food boxes to Tupperware to keep the props in. They're wedged against each other, so there's no need to fasten them to the bottom of the case.

You can also use "pick 'n pluck" foam (I think that's what it is called) if you can find it.

The kitchen drawer silverware organizers work for me.

I love velcro dots- I use them on props that won't be hindered by having something stuck on them
God's grace rocks! It makes a good cups and balls routine look pretty boring in comparison.

Good photo equipment cases and good metal briefcases that are set up for tools often have adjustable dividers. These are really great. Price range on these is anywhere from about $20 to about $80. The more expensive ones have metal that is a bit thicker on the surfaces, and they tend to have better edge protection.

Look at places like Ritz/Wolf camera stores. Sometimes these go on sale and you can make out like a bandit then.

As an addition to what Bill says above, The difference in the price of the cases is often very noticable when you carry it awhile. The handles of many of the higher priced ones is often much more comfortable. However, if you simply stack them on a hand truck rather than carry them by the handle, who cares? For the ones I must carry, I spend the extra money. Hand comfort counts!

Oh yes, if you were to carry the case for quite a distance, getting good quality case that comes with a comfortable handle can make a big difference to your hand condition just before a performance. And if you are doing a manipulation act, it will affect the performance.
