Orange, CA – SKB’s design engineers are always busy with new projects and updating existing models to make them even better. The four original models of iSeries Mil-Std. Watertight cases that were introduced eight years ago have been re-tooled and updated to meet current specifications to make them even better. The 3i-1813-7B, 3i-2011-8B, 3i-2015-7B and 3i-2015-10B models now comply with the updated design of the iSeries Watertight Cases.
These updates include adding an updated trigger latch, larger flange around the case, adding sturdier support ribs to the latch and hinge areas and stainless steel locking loops to accommodate a customer supplied lock. All of these updated
specifications yet the cases continue to stack securely with the previously designed models.
The 3i-2011-8B model now has a convenient cushion rubber over-molded handle that has been added to left side of the case making it easier to carry or lift.
Previously the 3i-2015-7B and 3i-2015-10B models were the only two models that did not accept the TSA authorized latches, with the updated trigger release latches both models will now accommodate TSA locking latches. A cushioned rubber over-molded carrying handle has been added to the side of each case for easier lifting. In addition, the wheels on the3i-2015-10B model were changed to a more outboard installation providing a smaller interior wheel well and a little additional room inside the case as well as additional ground clearance when pulling the case.
