Abstract : Safe transportation holder and package for explosive devices such as blasting caps. Each cap is contained in an internal cavity in a holder, and surrounded by radially-spaced, elastomeric walls. The holders are arrayed in a container, and absorb the energy released by accidental detonation of one cap to prevent sympathetic detonation of others in the package,
