This small surface-mount briefcase swivel handle is suitable for making flight or road cases out of 6mm plywood panels and smaller hardware. Such cases are lightweight and usually travel in the back of the car or a plane.
However, if you do plan to ship the cases via couriers in trucks, not under your control, then you should consider a more sturdy road case build of 9mm or 12mm plywood panels.
If you are not sure which other materials and hardware that will normally go with such a light-duty case here is a list of them for your convenience:
- Laminated plywood panels 6MM
- Small surface mount die-cast latch with key lock
- Single angle edge extrusion
- Hybrid extrusion for 6mm plywood panel
- Small lid-stay hinge
- Small flat corner, or small ball corner
- Small corner brace
- EVA foam 5mm
The small surface-mount road case handle is made of 1.2mm 18 gauge steel and is very easy to install. Unlike recessed handles, there is no need to cut any holes on the plywood panel.
We love to see your finished case and please share your finished road case to our Facebook and we will record a 20 dollars discount for your next purchase. Consider that as a few coffees from us to help you keep building at home.
