Brahma wheel lock storage

For those of you with the Brahma wheel lock, have you found anything convenient and easy to stow the lock during travel?  We have a van and think we want something padded to eliminate any noise during travel and something with a handle or two to allow us to lift it out of the van.  

I called the company and they do not have a storage bag.  I thought the solar suitcase bags would be perfect, but, Renogy does not sell them and Zamp (Solardealz) only has small ones.  I am looking at folding bike bags.  Keyboard bags are too narrow.  Any thoughts?

    How about a pizza bag from Amazon, @SAM ?  I used it for my BAL Leveler when I had it, then for my Travel Toilet. It kept both of the safe and sound.

    Good idea Verna.  I did look at that, but it is too small.  The Braham measures 27 by 22.  Hard to find any kind of shallow storage container that is wide and long enough!

    I need to get closer from you guys and start my own little side line.  :)

    i made a few of these to keep our shoes out of our [email protected] and also protected from the elements. Try tomrecycle material as I found them. That red stuf come from chairlift tower pretection cussion that would be thrown away at the end of the season cause they were partly slashed. Also made other bags from hd polyethelene tarps from old snow car shelters.



    And also made a soft bag for what we call dry food.

    @SAM do an Amazon search on “soft side luggage”.  I found a floral one for ...... $89.......  I couldn’t find an appropriately sized duffel bag.

    How about a cornhole game case? https://tinyurl.com/yd9jyb8a, slightly too big at 24x36"x9 3/4, or getting someone to make you one, like luckyj?

    Or I wonder if one of those heavy duty canvas firewood carriers could have the sides sewn up for your use? Or I suppose I can stop with off the wall and wait for someone with an actual solution chimes in.

    @SAM, never considered storing it in anything. We just put it in the back of the TV with everything else: camp chairs, carpet, extra propane tank, extra free standing table, two folding bikes in carry bags, weber grill, firewood, cooler, Brahma Lock et al. If I find something, or the spirit moves me to make something, I'll let you know.

    Thanks everyone for chiming in.  Luckyj I wish I knew how to upcycle something.  Verna, I would like a soft sided 27 inch bag, may have to settle for one with wheels, maybe check with Good Will!  Twojgrams, my husband found a sturdy firewood carrier, but the sides are too short, but the cornhole cover sounds promising.  I will let you know what I settle on.  If you have any more ideas, please let me know.

    My sister suggested having a marine shop make one.  We have 2 in the area that I can check out.

    I too have pondered this question. Proper storage of large, heavy metal objects is critical if they’re in the TV with driver and passengers. My wife figured out that she could secure the largest pieces to the side of our pickup bed using nylon webbing cam straps.
    They’re at the back of the bed where they’re easily accessible. I think the pieces would stay attached during a crash. If not, they might not fly forward at 65 miles an hour.

    @Bert, we now travel with the lock just inside the door of the Tab.  We purchased a polyester duffle type bag that we had altered at a shoe repair place.  It stows in the bag.  Just easier for us to carry it this way.
