How we need to prepare



I’d like to thank Rob Mayer for posting a link to a UK company that supplies self sealing tins. The product called PressItIn supplies normal can sized tins that you can put your own stuff in and seal it up.


I’ve had a look at them and I can see quite a few uses for these tins in helping us prepare. Coupled with an inert gas I can see a few uses now with tremendous storage options once the tins get bigger.

  • To protect certain items long term.
    • Foodstuffs, coffee, tea, etc.
    • Ammunition
    • Tools
  • Medical items
    • Medicines
    • Syringes
  • Instructions
  • Caching
    • Clothings
    • Towels
    • Sanitary equipment
    • Wet Wipes
    • EMP proof small items
  • To hide certain items. Put a normal label on the item.

I’m sure we can all think of additional uses.

At only 71p a tin what can go wrong?  They could be cheaper and easier than the solutions we use now. I’ll be checking up and seeing what the minimum quantity is this week,

    Personaly I would use the reusable tins/jars the site has to offer.

  • Skean Dhude

    Well spotted. I’ll fix it on the page.

    I do like reusable jars but I see a requirement for tins that have no seals that can wear out.

    Personally, I think Bob Mayer has found a very valuable item here. Very useful for storage and you can buy them by the hundred. I shall be saving the pennies to buy some soon. Kenneth Eames.

    looks like you need to buy a MINIMUM of 60 at a time.

  • River Song

    Nice – the size of the can is the same as a normal can of beanz
    Would have loved it larger but hey ho !

    yes you need to buy a minimum of 60 which is a bit of dosh
    but I’ve got a few ideas.

    SK – how would you fill them with inert gas?

  • fred

    Canned oxygen?

  • Skean Dhude

    OK. It is not a minimum as such but they sell them in cartons of 60 so you have to buy them in 60, 120, 180, etc. I’ve just bought some so will see what they are like. Free postage if you spend above £200 or £13 otherwise.

    River, the gases are heavier than air so you pour them into the container and when all the air is gone you put the lid on.

    Can do it with many times of packaging. Basically replaces the air so that the objects don’t oxidize, and eggs in there don’t have air either so dead creatures rather than ruined food stores.

      Great idea, but last time I enquired these were not air tight, so they are not suitable for wet products or for use with protective atmosphere as you propose. Damn shame!
