The new Q Grip handle system enables the manufacture of cost-effective, high-performance totes of practically any size.
Q grip achieves this size flexibility using three unique components (patent pending). The component comprises two “end” sections which can be positioned at various lengths apart, plus the “handle”, which is fastened centrally over the two ends to secure them in place.
As well as vastly reducing initial assembly times (resulting in lower unit costs), the unique locking mechanism ensures your totes are exceptionally robust and hardwearing.
You can also see additional cost savings as the system eliminates the need for fixing components such as screws or glue.
Q Grip also minimises any potential design costs when specifying custom totes. The handle’s function allows bespoke sizes to be created quickly and easily with very little input from Correx® packaging designers.
Cost savings using custom-sized tote containers
However, the dimensional flexibility – creating a tote to the exact size you require instead of the nearest available option – is perhaps Q Grip’s most significant single benefit.
Eliminating wasted space inside the tote box reduces the storage requirements at your factory or warehouse (or maximises limited space), reducing the costs associated with this.
The same also applies to the transit of your totes and is particularly true if you ship parts, components or completed products to different production locations as part of a larger supply chain. The volumetric (and weight) savings of not using totes too large for the items within can soon provide significant cost savings.
During transit or handling, custom sizes tailored to your parts or products also minimise the movement of the contents. This feature significantly reduces damage caused by impact and mishandling (and the costs associated with returns, replacements, etc.).
Besides direct cost savings, custom-sized Q Grip totes can indirectly impact your company’s profitability. You can typically achieve this through increases in efficiency and productivity. For example, the strong, ergonomic handles allow for easier handling of totes for your operatives.
The use of compatible internal dividers, as well as allowing you to store and move multiple items, can also help with this. The use of Bubble-board or fabric-covered Correx® for these divisions can improve surface protection, too (eliminating scuffs to polished or painted surfaces, for example).
Reasons to use Correx® Q Grip tote boxes
Besides the benefits offered by the unique Q Grip handle, the use of Correx® itself provides several advantages too.
Q Grip totes manufactured using corrugated plastic can provide strength and performance comparable to moulded plastic boxes.
The durable nature of Correx® also offers an extended lifespan over corrugated cardboard packaging (which businesses typically use for single-trip applications). Although more costly initially, the overall “lifetime cost” of a Correx® tote – compared with a corrugated cardboard equivalent – is considerably lower too.
The inherent strength in both Correx® and the structural design used to create Q Grip totes also ensures that, when stacked, the totes do not crush or burst, protecting the items stored within. Q Grip’s integrated stacking corner and retention feature play a vital role.
Finally, the use of Correx® material provides a degree of physical protection, offering resistance to moisture, oil, grease, and most chemicals. Q grip is even available in a conductive version to protect items from static.

Features of the Q Grip system
The diagram and explanatory notes highlight the main features of the Q Grip system.
Packaging location clip.
Snap-fit handle locking feature.
Interlocking teeth on the rear side of end components lock into those on the handle, allowing you to specify the tote in any size.
The rear handle fits inside the front handle for enhanced aesthetics and a comfortable grip.
Interlocking teeth inside the handle component lock into teeth on end/corner sections when folded over, eliminating the need for screws.
Living hinges allow the handle to fold over.
Stacking platform and movement guards on each corner.
How Q Grip works
- Firstly, the die-cut Correx® material folds as if assembling the tote or container.
- The side components adjust to the required packaging width and locate on the tote corners.
- The handle fits on top of both the side components and folds over them.
- The teeth from both the handle and side components interlock when folded and secure the three parts together, preventing them from coming apart.
- The final step of the assembly process ends with pushing the front and rear handles together. The cantilever snap features built into the hand holes locate, fixing the handle securely.
Enhance your Q Grip containers
Besides the size flexibility Q Grip provides, there are several other (optional) ways to enhance them further.
