Yes cleated boxes are much easer to carry thats for sure -wish they came that way sometimes -takes a bit of time to do if you have a lot of boxes -thanks for the tip-  8-)      RDY-B

the only problem i see with cleated boxes is that moisture can get between the cleat and the box and cause rot.

The best ones i have seen-have a slight angel cut on the top side of the cleat so water drains away -plus this person calked the top also -like i said takes time to do all that -but if you use a boom truck cleats are a must for the forks of the cradle - I will stick to four way pallets and use somebody else's forklift  :-D but they are nice to pick up -easy on the hands and fingers  8-)  RDY-B

Isn't that what they make Gorilla Glue for?

Everything fails sometimes.  That's why they make baling wire.

   Bailing wire and chewing gum... Sounds familiar!!! :-D
Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)
