Cleaning Rod Accessory Storage

What do you keep your cleaning rod accessory tip thingys in to keep them from going missing?

I was cleaning again today and thought I'd see what everyone else was using? I use the narrow oblong eyeglass cases(no Bcatter I don't wear glasses ), mini mag plastic boxes and snack size ziplock bags.

I use small tackle box organizers . Mainly because I have a bunch of them left over from work. The machines I used to work on had tons of small parts.

Well now, great ideas! I have them mostly in original kits and containers so, can never fins what I want! LOL I do have a little travel kit(water proof sandwich box) I use mostly with pistol stuff and since I mainly carry 9mm, makes it really easy. I do have a larger travel box but I really need to organize the several various Outers cleaning kits I have spread all over the house and garage.

The jags and brushes I use are in one of these MTM cases made for it, four sections, one is crossways near hinge:



The spares go in Altoid mint tins. Perfect fit, marked by caliber with a Dymo label gun.

Different sized prescription pill bottles do a lot, too. Like for cotton swabs, patches, my Wheeler screwdriver bits, etc..

My rods are easy. I have a three piece Hoppe's rifle rod. If I leave out the middle section, it's perfect for my 10/22. My handgun rods are 4 inch one piece brass Deweys, with a loop end.

All the rods go in the tray of the Flambeau tool box I use for my tools and cleaning gear.

Good storage ideas all around. I had forgot about using pill bottles for storage.

The Tupperware type stuff has gotten harder to find in little sizes. I have one about 3 X 4, and an inch thick, for some little tools. Got a hi tech looking sandwich box that has a rubber seal and latches, at a thrift store. It holds all of my Guardian parts.

We finished up a spice bottle and I thought about your question.
Would this be too small for what you want?

Great idea! Those short spice bottles would work for smaller calibers. I just tried a spice bottle that was a little bit taller and the AR chamber mops & brushes fit perfectly. Those have been the problem children as they are wider than any other thingys for other calibers.
