I want to find the pieces for tube about the size of a glowstck, only with a screw on liquid tight cap.. my dad tried to be really helpful and bring me a ton of glowsticks from the rig... you know, those uber long chemical lights... but they are made to clip to life vests and stuff, and not conducive to spinning at all.. so I was trying to make a container for the liquid taht I could spin with.. I mean I have a ton of the juice, but nowhere to stick it.. I've looked around hardware stres, but havent seen anything very helpful.. I figure if they had stuff like this out there, people would use them to make led sticks or something.. but it never hurts to ask..

peace..

I've seen small waterproof cases that are made for holding small items like keys and such, and seen them in clear to boot... might that be something you could use? They usually have a loop for attaching them to stuff.

Could you use a cork?
like one from a wine bottle?
confused


How aesthetic does it have to be? i.e.. can you cover the ends with duct tape?

I was gonna say pvc as well.

You're in Louisiana? Just take a walk trough the plumming department of Home Depot or Lowes, or if you have a Harbour Freight around where you are (though HF is more of a tool store they have some crazy stuff in there that might work brilliantly). They have all kinds of PVC plumming stuff. You should be able to find something that will work. And even if it's not water tight you can put some rtv sealer (liquid gasket) around whatever part would leak and fix that.
