Disposable LP canister storage

This mod might seem insignificant, but It is important to me. I always enjoy mods and the pictures thereof, so I will share this. I wanted to make some space in my thru-storage compartment, so I decided to store my grill and lantern canisters elsewhere. I prefer to use the disposables because I use an LP campfire and lantern, and I like being able to move away from the 5er sometimes. The corrugated plastic drain tile is secured with a 1/2" aluminum strap. I have a length of all-thread through both drain tiles and also through the aluminum strap that serves as a "stop" or bottom for the canisters. You can see that it stores 4 total. BTW, I was able to use materials I had on hand.

Good idea. Not insignificant at all. We also use some disposable canisters so I may do this also. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, guys. The project recovered quite a bit of storage in the "thru" compartment.
