Custom Tackle Units – Free Standing

by boat3545 on March 6, 2014

We recently had a customer who wanted to take one of our standard free-standing tackle boxes and make some really sweet modifications to it. Traditionally, our tackle units are made so the Plano trays pull out on sliders so you can lay them on the deck of the boat, pull out the tackle you need and then slide them back into the unit. You can see what I mean in the picture below. The part number for this unit by the way is 13770-51671 and can be found on Boat Outfitters.

This is an awesome box as is but our customer wanted to take this to the next level. Instead of mounting the Plano trays on the starboard runners like we normally do, he wanted the ability to be able to work in the Plano tray without having to pull it all the way out of the box. So what we did for him was put the Plano trays on their own individual slide out drawers. This allows you to slide the tray out, open it up, pull out your tackle and then slide the Plano tray back into the tackle unit without removing the entire tray. Take a look!
