rust preventive packets

7 posts in this topic

i saw on TV once, an add for a packet that you could put in your tackle box to absorb moisture to prevent rust from forming. and Ron Kline told me he uses the silicon packs that come with equipement to do the same. ok . my question is, does anyone know where to find these to buy? del

silica gel is available at Galyans. It is often found used in safes to prevent moisture. You could use a small mesh bag (like a spice bag ) and when you want to recharge it, you bake it for a while.

Run down to a welding or production shop, and ask a welder to give you the silica packs they put in the tubs of wire. Odds are good they have a lot laying around, they just get tossed out. The silica packs are about the size of a hand warmer pack.
They work well for preventing rust in Small to mid sized storage comportments and tackle boxs.

The welding wire tubes make for some good storage units too, grab them if you can talk them out of a few, bigger shops go through a lot of them.

I have the companys HSOforum saved to my favorites delmut. Its www.theinhibitor.com They seem to be pretty reasonable cost wise. After opening up my ice jig box this fall and seeing all the rust it seems like cheap insurance to me.

I got a bunch of The Inhibitor cards as a promo item and I'm trying 'em out in the box this year. The principle is that they emit a vapor which arrests corrosion before it starts. Just a little rust in a jig-eye is enough to sever that mono when you need it most!
