Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2018-05-16

Keep your stuff safe inside the D-Cache High Capacity Storage Container. Shaped like a stick of dynamite, this container comes with dual multi-function end caps. Ideal for sorting and storing everyday carry items, the D-Cache fits survival gear, first aid supplies and more. Featuring a double-ended cap design, the container makes it easy to remove your items from either end. Likewise, you can remove both caps to push items through. The watertight O-ring seals on each cap help protect your belongings. In addition, each D-Cache comes with your choice of multi-functional bottom caps. The interchangeable cap options include an oil filled button compass, glass breaker/scribe, recessed magnet, threaded insert and Embrite glow insert. You can also use the removable fuse feature on the top cap to color code contents when using multiple containers. Manufactured from aircraft grade 6061-T6 aluminum, the container offers secure and reliable storage to last a lifetime.

Review from Kickstarter
Regarding additional orders, we are setting up our web site for the product listings and will provide a link to everyone prior to shipping rewards. This will give you one opportunity to order additional items at Kickstarter prices. Please note that you will be charged shipping, and if your additional items do not impact shipping costs on your initial order you will be refunded the shipping charges on the add-on order. If the additional weight throws you into additional shipping charges for the total order, we will determine the charges and refund the difference, if any.

Same here. Would like to order more caps.

Is there an option for additional caps?! Greatly appreciated I pick mine but want more options thank you

Understood. Not having the word dynamite on the packaging will help. D-cache is much less suspicious.

Review from Kickstarter
@ Mscm& : We plan to ship these in labeled packaging with the fuse removed (it will be inside the D-Cache). It is very unlikely it will be run through an X-ray machine, let alone opened and inspected. If opened, it will likely be resealed and sent to you. I wouldn't worry too much about it

Review from Kickstarter
@mscm& How, without opening a package would anyone see what it looks like? U.S. Postal Service does not utilize x-ray machines on a routine basis and there are far too many packages in the mail to check them all. But if you really want to be safe, request yours be shipped with the end caps removed. A “pipe bomb” depends upon the pressure inside the building up a politically and catastrophically to the point the container (aka “pipe”) can no longer contain it and bursts. Without ends the over-pressure simple passes out the open ends. I no expert of course, but I watch lots of spy movies so I know these things. ;)

Will the dynamite cache be ok going through a delivery service or postal system? Sending such a suspicous looking thing might get messy. I can just imagine bomb squads opening packages.

@ Tim : And BTW, I also carry a couple of Glo-Toobs, love them!
TEC Accessories
Review from Kickstarter
@ TIm : We appreciate the kind words, and the loyalty to TEC! Regarding your questions:
1. Fuse of Embrite would be cool, and is possible. But we manufactured some 3mm Embrite material for our Pixel Ti microlight (for the tail cap) as a stretch goal on that Kickstarter, and it was difficult. Not only is it difficult to make in that small size of a diameter, it did not perform well due to the small volume to store light energy.
2. The fuse "hole" is actually a bore slightly larger than the fuse diameter, and also has an embedded o-ring just below the surface to grip the fuse and hold it in place. You need the deep bore to prevent the fuse from wobbling around too much while in the o-ring. So we could make a 1/4-20 threaded adapter that had these features and would screw into the tapped hole, and allow for fuse insertion. For those that wanted dual-functionality, it could be done. Can it be done cost effectively? I think it's worth looking into because I can see how people might want that. The difficulty in manufacturing parts like this is that they would be made in much smaller quantities than the main components so cost starts to go up pretty quickly. There is no point in making 1,000 adapters if only 50 people buy them.
3. Our web site will be set up to take orders of individual parts, so if you want to "build your own" or just get extra caps of different designs to switch out, you will have that opportunity. The cost will be slightly higher than buying a pre-made "stick", mostly due to individual packaging and handling. We did not want to offer that option in this campaign due to the sheer headache it would cause in trying to handle it logistically for each individual order. For this campaign, we sold 514 individual units. Try coordinating over 500 orders of individual parts and the added cost of the packaging. Yikes!

Review from Kickstarter
I have been a TEC Accessories customer for a few years and have recommended your products to people that ask "What is that?" I am also excited that your company is so active in new designs and share about some of your processes. The beacon idea would be fantastic. The best implementation of this I have seen is Glo-Toob's Flash Cap (never used it though). My family has used their regular Glo-Toobs for years. Even if you have to sacrifice some of the internal space (hopefully minimal) or just have the beacon cap longer, you could put in a user selectable LED for adaptability (Red, Yellow, Blue, Green, White) under a nice diffuser. I have a few questions: > Is it possible to offer a "fuse" out of your EmBrite material? > Could a 1/4-20 threaded screw with a hole for the "fuse" be included with the 1/4-20 Threaded Cap for dual usage? Kind of like a Mic Stand 3/8 to 1/4-20 adapter but for the EmBrite fuse listed above. > Do you have any plans on allowing the picking of both ends and not requiring the top cap as standard since the threading is the same?

I like it more all the time. Thanks @Ross that’s a great idea too.
Ross Burke
Review from Kickstarter
PS....For Robert's crazy idea....works the other way as well. If you've called for help somewhere, at home, or on the road, you stick your beacon activated D-CASHE to your car roof, or hang it from the eves on the front porch, and the responders can identity quickly. Worse is in a disaster scenario, an earthquake, flood...when comms are down and you need help. Amber or red flash means you need help, steady green means no injuries, all clear. You activate the flashing light and put it outside your door. (Get yourselves an inexpensive little yellow reflective triangle and leave it by the front door. No one does but they can be lifesavers in an emergency.)

@ Robert Barker : Actually, if you put the magnet cap on one end and the beacon/flasher on the other, you can stick it to your car with the beacon facing oncoming traffic!
Robert Barker
Review from Kickstarter
You could make the fuse thing a ‘pull to activate’ switch.
Robert Barker
Review from Kickstarter
Another use of the beacon/strobe would be as a highway flare. It kinda looks like that anyway. I can see having a few in my auto emergency kit.
Ross Burke
Review from Kickstarter
Wow. I like Robert Barker's beacon idea too. But yes, like a tile. I read stories about people leaving a wad of cash taped under a desk drawer, or up in a crawl space above a ceiling, or under their house....and then completely forgetting about it. So if you can work out the app, yes, something that could tie into a gps to locate where your D-CASHE is (within a few meters), allow your phone to ping you when you're getting too far from it, and maybe even ping you a reminder on a user enabled interval (every 7, or 30, or 90 days).

Review from Kickstarter
Love the suggestions! Bottle opener is possible, and the beacon is a great idea.
Robert Barker
Review from Kickstarter
Crazy idea. How about a high intensity beacon/strobe for nighttime visibility so you could leave the D-cache with a pack or bag and render aid or help then be able to find the bag again. I’m thinking about Emergency First Responders and EMTs who sometimes have to work in low visibility conditions.
Jason Humm
Review from Kickstarter
What about a low-profile bottle opener? Something that wouldn't stick out from the cap too far to get snagged on everything.
TEC Accessories
Review from Kickstarter
@ Ross Burke : I really like that idea. Similar to a TILE but integrated into a cap(?)
Ross Burke
Review from Kickstarter
As an idea, can you embed an RFID chip in an endcap? Think of the folks who want to stash a little som-som somewhere and then can't locate it. A simple locator app on the smart wearable...I can see applications in the intelligence community (think spy novels).

Review from Kickstarter
@ Robert : Thank you for the feedback, we would love to hear from other backers as well!. Me personally, I keep 2 rolls of quarters and a small capsule with a couple of $20 bills in one, and it stays in the car. I always need parking meter change, and an extra couple of 20's has come in handy more than once. Let's hear some more ideas!
Robert Barker
Review from Kickstarter
Very quiet campaign. I’m looking for how you might decide to use your D-cache. My idea is to use one as a waterproof storage for camera accessories.
TEC Accessories
Review from Kickstarter
@Robert Barker : Oh that cup holder!!! You have been around for a long time my friend.
#1: The RETREEV easily fits into the D-Cache (with spikes stored)
#2: That threaded D-ring is sold separately. They are very inexpensive and we will offer those on our web site as well. But Amazon sells 2 for $6 or 5 for $9, both Prime
#3: We haven't tested them because we are changing the o-rings on the production units. The o-ring grooves were not made to spec, so we improvised using different o-rings on the prototypes. The intent is that they will be waterproof such that you can submerge them, but to what depth I cannot say at this time.
#4: Thank you for the suggestion!
Robert Barker
Review from Kickstarter
So I’m in for 2. Of course I have questions and a suggestion. I’ve been buying and supporting TEC now for years. Remember the Beemer cup holder. Got that and a number of others and I’m currently waiting for the Slide Pens from your last campaign. I’ve never gotten anything from TEC that wasn’t top quality and performed as advertised. Question 1 - Will the Retreev tool fit inside the D-Cache? Question 2 - you show a ring threaded into the 1/4-20 threaded cap. It’s the one the carabiner is attached to in the picture. Does this come with the cap or is it sold separately? Question 3 - you say the nitrile o-rings make the D-Cache water resistant. How water resistant. Can it be submerged and if so what depth and how long? Suggestion - Make a silicone band to fit around the D-Cache with corners on it to prevent it from rolling away.

@Paul Sandhu : Sorry, did not see your second question. No, the hole is not threaded so you could not install a lanyard into the fuse cap. If you have concerns about "pipe bomb" issues, you can always cut the fuse to a very small length so you still maintain the color-identification feature.
TEC Accessories
Review from Kickstarter
@Paul Sandhu : We will have individual end caps for sale on our web site after the rewards are fulfilled, at a very reasonable price. But adding that capability to this campaign was not possible due to the complexity and the cost (we would have to use Backerkit for the surveys and the price for the D-Cache would have been considerably higher to compensate).
TEC Accessories
Review from Kickstarter
@Jason Humm : Yes, the threads are the same at both ends of the tube!
Paul Sandhu
Review from Kickstarter
Also, is it possible to insert a lanyard instead of the 'fuse' - same concern as Jason about it being mistaken (by someone ignorant) for a pipe bomb. Great product!
Thanks
Paul Sandhu
Review from Kickstarter
Can you buy multiple end caps?
Please advise. Sorry - I didn't see it in the description.
Jason Humm
Review from Kickstarter
Are the top threads the same as the bottom? Would be nice to be able to have two of the function ends on the tube. This thing already looks like a pipe bomb and I'd never use the "fuse" to further complicate matters. This will be perfect for storing small items in the trunk of my Mazda MX-5, where space is at a premium.

Review from Kickstarter
@Cale : You can actually get entire rolls of quarters in there, but of course loose change will also fit. There is not much gap between the outside diameter of a quarter and the inside diameter of the cache so you won't notice much rattling if you only keep quarters in it.
Cale
Review from Kickstarter
Can we see some loose change go in there? Would be fantastic to fill with quarters for meters/parking machines if they don't rattle too much.
