Hasn't anyone heard of plastic milk crates?

I used to use those but was losing some room in my deep freezer so I switched to these. I absolutely feel these are a great investment.

Milk crates, carboy covers, etc...

IMHO there will still be times when the carboy is outside the protective device, like when washing the outside perhaps idk. Still a risk not worth taking.

Even with the carboy cover, my basement would be awash in beer or sticky wort...no thanks.

Well, maybe water. Don't want to waste beer.

I bet they'd do it if you contact them. I'm not sure what the point would be though. Obviously your beer, wort or water will leak (gush) from the carboy cover. Do you think the glass will still get out somehow?

I have 4 of these and they are solid. If I had one suggestion it would be that the bottom handle was on both sides just like the top. Other than that, perfect for me.

Anyone ever had them ship outside of the US? I'd buy one or two for sure.

The purpose of the test is that the liquid inside will create a MUCH larger force pushing the shards of glass outward against the cover. And it will hit harder, since it is heavier and has more mass.

And it would be cool.

I would bet that if dropped full of water, it would force some glass through.
Maybe not explosively, but that would be a true test of when you are most likely to drop a carboy, or to pull the neck off of one with the clamp on handles.
