Lid opens either to just access the Arm and Vest or opens completely to also reveal an additional compartment for fowl weather gear, additional cloths or add. gear, etc. With Lock for safety on set, (Keys provided) as well as latches for TSA locks. Outside dimensions: 22 x 26 x 22 1/2 inches, weight: 52 lbs.

One (1) Sled or AKS drawer case. (Fits my XCS Sled, no guaranty it will fit any other).
Meant to be used as a safe place for your rig or additional gear to be stored on set and transported/shipped to location. Drawer will extend all the way out of the Case and is removable. Latches for TSA locks. Outside dimensions: 22 x 26 x 10 inches, weight: 36 lbs.

The size of the two cases is matched to be mounted on top of each other and screwed together to be used as a single unit (Screws included) but they can be also used individually. Manufactured out of Flyweight (Special aluminum honey comb style material made by and for the A&S Case Company North Hollywood). Aluminum parts all around exempt for the polished stainless steel Corners.
They where shipped only once via FedEx and have very light shipping scuffs, but are brand-new inside (still have the glue smell!), never used on set.
Selling both for $1500.-
Priced for quick sale as I am running out of space in my storage unit (buyer pays for shipping and, if requested, for additional packaging material, after all they are shipping cases)
Cases are located in Europe (Switzerland)

Last time I checked... I could be wrong, but I don't think so...

Would you characterize is as a fire engine red, or more like a cherry red?

All you color connoisseurs and smart asses... I think it's RAL 3001 Signal Red.
First of all, I like Red and second of all, the color choice came down to actually wanting the cart to stick out. I can't say how many time I had carts in the frame that where during filming "don't worry we can't see them in frame" hidden.
That never happens with the red one, everybody immediately can see it AND MOVE IT out of frame. Works like a charm, also transpo can't say they left it because they didn't see it... still happens but way less...
Be safe and keep that red thing out of the frame
BTW: RED I was first all my stuff was red when you guys still were making Sun Glasses!

I'm very tempted. But I actually like your new upgraded version you posted on this forum better. Are you selling those as well or could I come to Switzerland and have one custom made for me?
It's a constant work in progress. I am working on version 11(which is half of version 10). The cases that I am selling was an attempt at version 10. (Version 9 is still in LA, Version 8 is in London, previous versions are spread across the US, The riser unit, vest holder, Steadicart from Backstage, that many are using these days in the industry, were the direct result from discarded versions, even Inovativ is copying my Vest holder design!),
As it turns out, the cases completely build (all 4 with all AKS), were exactly half an inch to long to fit into a standard european elevator, the fact is, the drawings where correct, but by trying to maintain the inside dimensions rather then the outside dimension the builder grew the cart by 2 inch. Normally it wouldn't be a problem (in the states) but here it is.
Also I wasn't happy with the compelling system...
That are the main reasons why I am selling them (the two cases), they are brand-new and never used. The cost and effort of cutting them down to size is beyond any reasonable effort as well as they would suffer cosmetically... So I am getting a replacement made. The money from the sale goes right back into R&D of the new version.
All the cases where made in the USA. And all I have found on manufacturing companies so far in my area in Switzerland was not up to parr with what I wanted/was accustomed to. So I am doing it myself. I am working with it on set, if it works and I like it, it stays if not I'll take the power tools to it. Lot's of people think it's over kill but I just like a certain order in my tools... I guess I am a neat freak when it comes to my tools, bikes, cars, helicopters, etc... My office its still a mess though...
In a couple of weeks there will be more parts for sale from version 10. Wheels, mounts, handles, parts, etc...
I hope somebody can create their own version with help of the parts that I no longer need...
