About The Expendable Box

The Clip-Lok expendable box is the easiest one-way transport box. It is based on our reusable model. However, it uses OSB (Orientated Strand Board), chipboard, plywood or combinations of these materials as panels.

The expendable box is customizable to meet your needs. It allows packaging to be built around the product. The expendable box is secured using Clip-Lok QIK clip. It is a tool free and nail free solution which has won a ScanStar Award for its ease of use. The design of the expendable box allows it to be flat-packable.

These expendable boxes are stronger and more durable than cardboard and other one way solutions. All components can be recycled or burnt for energy.




As with our reusable packaging, we fulfill your requirements and needs in the supply chain; our aim is to optimise your packaging. Our engineers will work closely with you to meet your needs for safe and rational packaging. By the help of our 3D design technology we design the box and dunnage to be cost-effective and to transport your items safely through the supply chain.



By optimising packaging you save space, handling and logistics costs all the way through the supply chain. We know from experience that our customers are able to pack more efficiently if the dunnage is well designed and meets their demands and specifications. Our engineers will work closely with you to fulfil your needs for safe and rational packaging. With the help of our 3D design technology we design a reusable box and dunnage that will transport your products safely through the supply chain.


No matter whether you choose a reusable, patented container, a 2P box or an expendable box, the dunnage is important to ensure cost-effective packaging with maximum protection and stabilisation of your products through the supply chain. We constantly develop creative additions to our range of designs and materials, and we construct our customised dunnage from a wide range of materials. By choosing well-designed dunnage which protects the items, you also optimise space usage.


Heavy or delicate products that can be scratched or break need to be securely packed to ensure safe delivery. We offer you dunnage based on your requirements. For you to be sure that our boxes meet your exacting requirements, we can assist in setting up performance testing such as weather-resistance, vibration, drop and pressure tests, etc.



Clip-Lok uses various materials and finishes in order to meet your demands. Our Expendable boxes are made of OSB (Orientated Strand Board), chipboard, plywood or combinations of these materials. We use all three clips i.e. original spring steel clips, Clip-Lok QIK Steel and Clip-Lok QIK Plastic clips. All three clips are strong and flexible. They are also easy to fit and remove.

  • Original strong spring steel clips, 35 or 50 mm wide
  • Clip-Lok QIK Steel Clip™ and Clip-Lok QIK Plastic Clip™
  • Presswood, plywood or OSB material in 12 – 36 mm, FSC or PEFC certified


The patented Clip-Lok QIK Clip is made to exact specifications to ensure that boxes can be opened and closed in a controlled manner without tools. It makes transport packaging simple and efficient. The Clip-Lok QIK Clip can be used to open and close the boxes multiple times in the supply chain and at customs. It has been tested and approved for its strength and durability.


When the box is used for one-way transport, all components can be recycled. The original spring steel clips and Clip-Lok QIK Steel Clips™ can easily be returned for reuse. Similarly, Clip-Lok QIK Plastic Clip™ can be burnt for energy.

Quality control
