Abstract : This patent relates to a blasting cap container and more particularly to a container that will allow shipment and storage of a number of blasting caps wherein the container is capable of absorbing and totally containing that blast. The container is sufficiently strong and secure to allow the simultaneous blast of a number of blasting caps without allowing shock or other products of the blast to affect primary explosives in the area. The container consists of a cylindrical vessel with one permanently closed end and one end fitted with a threaded door, wherein the caps are secured within the vessel in a manner to totally contain any detonation effects.
