Hey Allen Where Do You Get Those Yellow Plugs?

Unread post by Colino » March 6th, 2016, 1:59 am

Hello:
I've been trying to find a supplier for those yellow plugs you use to close the Eps box entrances. Would you care to share where you buy them?
Thanks
Colino

Beemaid sells them. They have a range of sizes. The plugs are tapered and the spec dimension represents the diameter of widest part at the base as I recall.

I found them through an old link in the diary.
Thanks

That's how it is. Also make sure the ones you order fit. Measure your hole diameter carefully and send it to them, explaining whether the tip or the base needs to be that size -- or a point halfway between tip and base to provide some friction.

Spruce Grove and Manitoba have different stock.

The 1-1/4" seem to be the right ones according to the picture and compared to the one I got from your 3 old EPS boxes. I haven't drilled the holes yet in my semi-eps boxes so I can monkey around with that when they come.
