Abstract

It is often necessary to handle magnetic disks before they are incorporated into a disk storage drive. For example, it may be necessary to transport the disks from one area to another for further manufacturing operations or for testing. Thus, it is desirable to have a proper container for both disk storage and transportation purposes. Additionally, the container is structured to provide access to any given disk in the container without handling any other disk in the container. The container 10 (Fig. 1) completely encloses the disks and is made of any suitable material, such as transparent plastic. Container 10 has a carrying handle 15 and a hinged cover 20 (Fig. 2) which can be latched in the shut position, as in Fig. 1.
