Product Description
I'm not exactly sure what to call this thing so storage cup slide frame it is.  The idea is that the frame can be screwed on the underside of a shelf and a used yogurt cup having a flange can be slid into the frame for storage of parts, coins, etc. Specifically the yogurt I have in mind is Activia which has a container with a large, flat, and square flange around the top edge.  The flange is approximately 2.5 by 2.5 inches, although the flanges on some cups may need a tiny sliver cut from one or two sides using a good pair of scissors to get them to easily slide into the frame.


This version of the frame has two small friction tabs on the top rails that are intended to pinch the cup flange slightly to prevent the cup from sliding out too easily.  If you don't need the friction tabs you can simply cut them off with a small pair of wire snips or cutters.  Since the frictions tabs are on the top rails the frame can not be screwed flush with the flat surface above it.  In this case you would need to use four small spacers or standoffs to provide a gap between the slide frame and the mounting surface above it, carve out small areas of the mounting surface above the friction tabs, or cut off the friction tabs.


My primary motivation for designing this frame is to eventually use it in various outdoor applications for things like small bird feeders, pest insect traps, and a host of other uses that would benefit from a container that is easily removeable.  Two small holes are also located in the frame that allow for a small screw to pass through the cup flange and hold it firmly in place, for example if the unit is swinging on the banch of a tree.  But in the mean time I can use one to hold the pennies, nickels, and dimes I earn from selling things on Shapeways. ;)
