Default Turn-in Box Measurements

Does anyone happen to know the dimensions of a standard KCBS turn-in box, specifically the length of the smaller bottom and top portion and the length of the larger middle?

Yes, it's an odd question, but I recall someone here had a great "mock" box created out of tape on the back of a platter and uses it for practicing turnin layouts (or that's what I figured!). I'd love to try it but can't find a stupid box to measure!

I think the standard is the 9" x 9" non-divided clam shell styrofoam boxes.

Thanks. But 9x9 is the measurement at the largest part, no? The bottom and top square in a standard turn in box in smaller than the middle of the clamshell.

What I'm really wondering is when you have the clamshell open, what is the length and width of the small square at the bottom, and what is the length and width at the largest lart of the box, the middle.

The "bottom" of the box is 6 1/4" X 6 1/4", the "top" of the box is 8 1/2" Wide(left to right) X 8" Deep(front to back)........the useless information that fills my head

Just go to a restaurant supply and get a sleeve of them. They are handy anyway.

We've seen them different at each contest. Yes, they are 9x9, but they can have slightly different lids and bottoms. Some are deeper at the bottom. Some are shallow at the top. Some slope in more at the top. At the GAB this year, there were two different style boxes... both 9x9.

KCBS boxes can be 8x8 or 9x9. At the GAB some teams were given 8x8 boxes and other teams were given 9x9 boxes. It didn't seem fair, but that's what they did.

Thanks for clarifying, John.

Thanks for draining your main brain, Sled. I love the idea of a fake box taped out on a cutting board. Will take pix once its done and that's again to whoever came up with the concept...

I agree with Greg... cheap enough to just buy some. You can probably even wash them off after each use or just line them with plastic wrap and the bottom to keep them clean to practice with.

Dumb question but do the contests always provide the boxes?

KCBS contests do provide them.

I'd imagine most of the other sanctioned contests by other organizations do as well....

The pic was mine.
China marker lines on the back of a 75 cent plastic serving platter.
Plenty close enough for practice for me. I was fussing with Cornish Hens at the time--failed that challenge

I have a box in front of me from a KCBS event--8 3/8 at the top, and 6 at the bottom.
At least for this one

They do seem to vary.
Just get a basic layout that you like and adjust on site.
Easy Peasey

Good Luck.
