Hope I have this in the right place. I'd like to get some hard cases for my more valuable steels. They seem hard to get. A seller on Ebay Germany is selling them, but won't ship to Canada. but was unable to get any. Can anyone help?:(

Where to buy HARD CLEAR PROTECTIVE CASES?

You ever see those clear cases that Blockbuster use to house their dvds? Kinda like this: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002MG9RMW/?tag=hidefnin-20

So far, this is the only source. Was hoping to find more sources to compare prices. Was wondering what fellow collectors use to protect your steelbooks, and whether or not you know more places that sells these hard clear cases.

Well on Amazon (your link) there are 2 sellers, if i had the choice I WOULD NOT BUY FROM THE FIRST ONE. I would seleck the bluraysteelbookcollector.

BUT I know someone here on site were selling something like this themselves...hmmm...if i only could remember which member that was.

Agreed. I would not buy from the first seller either.

Just a note of appreciation to those of you who've used these Keepers to protect your Steel Cases. Give us a call at AmTheft, at the phone or email above, if you need any.

Awesome! I had started a similar thread in another forum asking about these cases.

I started reading more closely and realize these are products normally sold to retailers with key to open. How can these be sold to casual collectors? Not complaining, great if I can buy them, but just curious.
 
they sell them without the key, so they cant lock.

they are good, but they are a VERY tight fit ... and I couldnt get one to fit with a sleeve on in it. There is also a small piece of plastic that rubs up against bottom of steel. I first tried to stick my Iron Man FS in it and I almost **** as it was about to damage it. I've stuck a BOE steel in it, and I will post pics here in a couple hours of close ups so you see it better.

Re: Hard Case For Your Steels

VERY IMPORTANT. Put the steelbook in the small sized side and always insert sliding the steel toward the bottom slats. If you do it any other way, that expensive steel will get lunched. I haven't damaged any of mine. As Wreck has indicated, slow and careful!

Just a quick note about the keys and locks. You are correct that we only sell the keys to licensed retailers. This is to help protect retailers from shoplifters.

I also want to warn you that you could, potentially lock the cases without a key. They come new with a tab that keeps them open. But if this tab is removed, they will lock.

Some collectors disable the lock prior to use. That's what I recommend.

Rigid Plastic Sleeves for Steelbooks...

Anyone know where to purchase rigid plastic sleeves to protect your steelbooks? I found this post on another forum, but it has no info. If I can find these, i think I will prefer this over the hard protective cases.

Found some on another forum.

BTW, I know they sell them here http://www.protected.de/200/cgi-bin/shop.dll?anbieterid=1

But I'm not sure if the ship to the US, so I'm wondering is there something similar in the United States.

Thanks!

If your talking about Poly Sleeves for Steelbooks I bought them here

http://www.bluraysteelbooks.com/steelbook-accessories/

They work great for my Steelbook protection and are cheap compared to some on ebay and other sites.
The adhesive strip is kind of placed weird but I just use a piece of scotch tape instead and works wonders.

Here are the amcase pics, you can see now how that platic notch is RIGHT on the steel ... It left very very very minute little line like on the steel ... I'm sure over time it would get worse, especially if you handle or plan to open up the steel often. However if you lay them flat I doubt you would ever have a problem.

wish case was just a bit bigger so I could customize to put some little rubber on the tip to avoid this.

Not 100% sure what you're describing. I took a close look at your picture and drew RED lines at where I think you're talking about. Please look at the picture and let me know if that's the spot you're talking about. If it is, could you break it off?

Steelbook shop? Ain't that some MUPPET Mod from another site?
Mini Hitler who uses the forum as his own personal ebay site for selling his stuff, and erases posts and suspends members who so much as mention a trade. What an:ass:HOLE
