a1Jim was asking about my pouches, so I thought I’d put a couple of pictures here. The whole idea started when I needed to pick up a sheet of oak plywood for a cabinet I was making for a customer. I had my trusty F-150, but alas, it was an extended cab with a 6 1/2 foot box and it was snowing. My tonneau cover was a foot and a half short. So, I asked around the local building supply stores, and searched the Internet, but couldn’t find anything other than a tarp. But they’re a pain to tie around the plywood, plus if you’ve ever had one blow out of the back of your truck at 50 miles an hour…

So, I thought, why not create one? I found a plastic supply company that would sell me a piece of woven polyethylene and a local upholstery shop to sew it (“you want to carry what in it?”). The next time I went out in the snow, I backed up to the loading dock and the guys bringing out the plywood said ‘uh, you know it’s snowing?’. I pulled the folded up pouch from behind the seat and they said ‘holy sh**! Where’d you get that?’ That’s when they asked if I could make on for baseboard trim… saves them rolls of single-use plastic every year. They also ordered one for an 8’ lift of sheetrock and a 12’ lift.

I’ve even sold a few to a company that delivers mattresses.

They’re a lot heavier than regular tarps and have an ultraviolet inhibitor to reduce sun damage (although they’re used mostly in bad weather) and the open end seals with a strip of full-width Velcro. All styles have ‘belt-loop’ tabs to secure in or on a truck.

I hope you like them.

-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.

I needed one of those just the other day. i was going to use a tarp and was thinking about the best way to try to wrap up stuff without the tarp flying out on the interstate. I always have to wait for good weather to pick up veneered plywood or drywall. Great idea, you need to go into buisness.

The plywood pouch is $59.95 CDN, which right now is about $57. U.S. I’m on the east coast of Canada, and to ship one to California for about $24.70 U.S.
Because they’re not very heavy, it’s the same cost to ship two pouches.

One other advantage to the pouches is the tie-down tab… Even on a nice day, many people have nice pickup trucks with one of those slippery plastic bed liners. If you go to pick up one or more sheets of plywood, paneling, OSB, etc., how do you secure it in the pickup bed? Most pickup beds these days are shorter than 8 feet.

With the Kerry-All Pouch, slide the sheets in, and hook a couple of pouch tabs (they run down the full length of both sides) to the truck bed with bungee cords, rope, etc.

Try that without a pouch!!
