The Tidy Tube

The Tidy Tube is a capsule designed to store pens, pencils and other utensils that may otherwise be difficult to store in a zero-g environment. Clips inside of the tube on the perimeter are designed for pens and pencils to be held in.This unit may be secured by Velcro on one side to a wall, an astronaut, or other equipment. Its inner storage volume may also store notes, parts, or other small objects. Its lid is designed to be a tight hold on the body of the tube without adhesive or threading. This design is made scaled down in a 2:7 ratio with its full scale design being able to store the length of an average pen/pencil. Adjustments in the dimensions and design of the project may be necessary to accommodate the tube's storage contents.
