Interesting protective packaging
« on: February 17, 2016, 01:06:05 AM »
I just came across this on ebay. The price is to high, however I find the protective foam interesting

If anyone wants to tiny url and post auction photo, please do.

Pretty easy to effectively shorten eBay links without even resorting to tinyURL. Just "whack" evevrything after itm/ except for the 12 digit item number. Everything in red here can go:

Leaving just this:

Thanks, I don't think I have ever seen one of those formed foam packaging covers before.

It looks like the foam may have reacted and adhered to the handset cord.
