Full product details for WAG Swing Cases

Need a narrow plastic case for unusually shaped items? Or something that is equally adept at presenting products as protecting them?

Please continue reading below for all of this and more.

WAG Swing case detailed buying guide

What are WAG Swing Cases?

Unusually shaped plastic box cases with attractive appearance

The shape and form of the Swing range of cases is fairly unique, and different enough from the other options manufactured by WAG (with the exception of Beat) for it be termed as a “box” rather than a traditional case.

In fact, there are very few similar cases from other manufacturers either, with the Rose Plastic RCS being arguably the only other comparable option available.

So, what are the purpose of these cases? Well, WAG have placed a large amount of focus on these cases being suited to retail applications. In particular, for displaying products in retail environments, with the case providing an “added value” benefit for the customer.

WAG Swing cases
Aside from their unusual proportions, the WAG Swing cases also offer numerous branding opportunities

There are a number of reasons why these plastic cases are suited to that application. Firstly, the transparent lid option allows for consumers to view the actual products prior to purchase. There are a range of print and branding options (including in mould labelling for high volume requirements) and of course the cases can be enhanced with custom foam inserts too.

Saying that, Swing cases are versatile enough for use in other applications too. They are a solid choice for the safe transit of small tools, diagnostic equipment, medical devices and other specialist items.

Plus, with a range of 6 sizes and 20 plus colour options, chances are there is a case option that will be a good match for your specific application.

WAG Swing Features

Useful and well thought out features

With WAG being one of the leading manufacturers of sample cases in Europe (and arguably worldwide), it is to be expected that their cases will incorporate a wide range of features.

Swing cases are no different. The below diagram and accompanying notes highlight the range of features present on this range of carry cases.

WAG Swing Case Features

Handle: The handle also doubles up as a strong “clip closure”, helping to minimise the footprint of the case and enhance usability. The colour of these can also be mixed and matched with the main colour of the cases’ body, allowing for a striking, on brand appearance to be achieved.


Ribbed Sections: The ribbed design to the edges of the cases not only provides a unique visual appearance, but also provides additional strength.


Hinge: The hinge on Swing cases runs along the entire width. This means that not only does it operate smoothly, but also ensures it is durable and long lasting.


Branding Area: The surfaces of the WAG Swing cases provide various options for branding. It can, at the most basic, allow for easy application of labels. It can however also facilitate screen printing of basic logos, or digital print for more complex designs. It’s also possible to use in mould labelling for full colour, photographic imagery.


Feet: Although Swing cases can be used both horizontally and vertically, the moulded feet on the bottom allow for the case to remain sturdy and stable when stood upright.


Stacking Pins Swing cases feature small stacking pins on the sides to allow for multiple cases to be safely stacked together (ideal for larger sets of products that may run into multiple cases).

Typical uses for WAG Swing Cases

Although there is a focus on retail applications with the Swing case range, there are other various potential applications to which they are suited.

The below section provides a brief overview of some of the most common of these.

Retail Packaging

Certain products – for example DIY tool sets, models, toys / games, collectibles, and many others – will often retail inside a protective case.

This not only allows the customer to retain the case after purchase, keeping the items safe and organised, but also greatly increases the perceived and actual value of the products.

Swing cases are a great option for use in this manner. Their small sizes are ideal for products that typically benefit from this, as well as the transparent lids and branding options allowing customers to buy with confidence.

The inclusion of foam inserts can also provide another layer of benefit – in terms of both protection and product presentation too.

Small Equipment Cases

Many service engineers, technicians and installation crews only require a small set of specialist tools, which are sometimes fairly small in size. Typically, however, they are limited to larger cases to house these, which results in wasted space and inefficient handling.

Swing cases can be a useful option for this application, featuring a similar level of protection to other plastic cases. This can be further enhanced with foam lining.

Their usability also helps to improve the productivity of your workforce as well.

Sales Meetings

The clean design of the Swing cases also makes them an option for presenting items during sales pitches and presentations.

In fact, the unusual design and format can actually help your sales reps stand out from the crowd (if they are using more standard carry case options).

The benefits inherent to retail applications also help here too – with feet allowing the cases to stand upright, transparent lids giving a sneak preview before the presentation, and branding options to match any corporate identity.

Specialist Equipment

WAG Swing cases are a good choice for housing specialist equipment. This can be for retailing – as per the details in the earlier section – but can also be suitable for hiring of this type of item (e.g. diagnostics equipment, specialist tools, measurement or medical devices etc.)

Plastic product cases
WAG Swing are equally suited to the task of safe storage and transportation of small parts, tools, equipment etc.
