The Best Craft Organizer PortaInk Standard Ink Pad Inserts are required in each storage slot to properly store ink pads. The inserts wo... Full Description & Details.
Yes, they were a bit difficult but I have never been much of a quitter.
You just have to lift in one side of the insert into place first then the other side goes in. I held the insert in place with one hand and used a small flat head screwdriver on the other side to lift the prong up and into the slot.
Once I got the hang of it, they went in easily.
Now all of my Distress pads stay where I put them. I have already ordered 2 more of the Portainks organizer and the inserts too!
These work great for the PortaInk Organizer for all of my Tim Holtz ink pads.
I found them difficult to install... I had to "jam" them hard sometimes so they would click into place. I didn't find it to be a big deal because it didn't take long.
If you get the PortInk you really need this for the smaller ink pad like Tim's. They make it so much easier to get the inks out.
Glad I purchased this product. I have a sundry of Stampin' pads, Tim Holtz distress inks and others. This product makes it much easier to get to those ink pads that do not require the full depth of the PortaInk slot, sich as the TM pads. I followed the tip from another reviewer and slid the inserts in rather than snapping them in. I don't plan to travel with the PortaInk so this works for me. Highly recommend if you have different sizes of ink pads.
I did not insert the Inserts when I connected the two storage unit together, so they did not "snap in" as stated in the instructions after the unit was put together. They do work at keeping a Ranger inkpad from slipping back from fingers reach in the shelf, so I am happy!
Note: need more than 1 package if storing lots of small inkpads.
