AbstractA container for the secure storage and transport of items, has a rigid rectangular base with rigid side walls upstanding from opposed edges thereof, a rigid back wall extending generally normally of the base wall between the side walls (preferably centrally of the base) and partition walls pivotally connected along one edge to the back wall. Each partition wall is foldable so that it is held against or parallel to the back wall and extendable from the back wall to be supported on runners on the side walls. The base and each partition wall has a front wall pivotally connected to its edge spaced from the back wall and when the partition walls are extended these front walls are each movable to extend upwardly between the side walls from its associated partition wall to the one thereabove.
