Step 1: Measure Your Case

Step 1: Measure Your Case Start by measuring the case depth to see how tall you will need the dividers to be. Now that you know how tall to make them, cut the corrugated plastic into strips for your DIY Trekpak dividers.

Step 2: Apply the Protective Foam

Step 2: Apply the Protective Foam We used self-adhesive-backed foam so there wouldn't be any lingering spray foam smells. Cut these down to the same size as the plastic and adhere them to the strips. Be careful not to cut more than you'll need for the plastic.

Step 3: Add Bobby Pins to Connect the Dividers

Step 3: Add Bobby Pins Insert the bobby pins to stabilize and connect the dividers. PROTIP: Use self-adhesive felt strips to create tabs that will make it easier to move and remove the bobby pins.
