The Flinn Thermometer Storage Rack is used to store, transport and dispense thermometers. Students can take their thermometers from the rack and return them upon completion of the lab. The rack can be folded, locked and stored.
Science teachers report that storing, transporting and dispensing thermometers to students is a problem that needs a solution. A science teacher created this rack aimed at solving that problem.
The rack measures approximately 12½" L × 12" W and accepts 14 12"-long thermometers. Instead of your expensive instruments rolling around a drawer, they are placed in the rack that is hinged so it can be placed in the lab on days thermometers will be used. Students can take their thermometers from the rack and return them upon completion of the lab.
The instructor can quickly tell if thermometers are missing. The rack can be folded, locked and stored. A really valuable tool to protect and store expensive thermometers.
