Do you need to modify the interior of your Pelican™ case to fit specific items? Whether it is a laptop, camera, drone, or a range of other items that could use some added cushion, Pick N’ Pluck Foam can help to make that happen.

There are some benefits and advantages to using this specialty foam. Among them are:

  • • Adding an organizational element to what you are carrying, giving the items a streamlined and tidy appearance, while being able to see the exact items you have.
  • • Abilities to customize the protection of the items you are carrying, creating a configuration to absorb shock, vibrations, and impacts.
  • • Maintaining a manageable weight to facilitate carrying the case and all the items within it.
  • • Adding a resistance to dust and moisture to prevent both from accumulating within the case.
  • • A simple installation that only requires pulling out the cubes or sections of them without tools.
  • • The ability to transform and re-transform the configuration of the items. The foam is reusable, and you can put back cubes you may have taken out previously.

And now to the steps in customizing the foam in your Pelican™ case:



perforated foam

Mark the Foam

Remove all the Pick N’ Pluck perforated foam from the case, leaving the solid sheet in the bottom and the convoluted sheet in the lid.

Arrange all the items on the bottom layer leaving adequate padding around the items. Leave a minimum of 1 inch of foam around items; 2 inches or more may be desired depending on the item’s fragility and weight.

When satisfied with the layout, begin to trace around the items with a sharpened piece of chalk. Toothpicks may also be used to mark the perimeter of the foam to be removed.



plucking the foam

Pluck the Foam

When ready, start removing foam carefully and slowly, as to remove the whole plug in one piece.

Note: Do not discard the foam plugs you have removed from the holes.

Test Your Work

Put the foam sheets back into the case and place the items in their cutouts. Notice how the items fit; you want a snug fit but not to the point the foam is compressed. Don't worry if the hole is too big or the item sits too deep in the hole. You can trim the plug (you saved) and simply glue it back in correcting big holes or raising the item up to the desired level.

With care and planning you can customize the foam inside your case to perfectly hold the items you want to ship.
