4" x 12" Self Locking Kraft Tubes

Three kraft, Snap Loc mailing tubes

When you ship a long, oddly shaped item, or delicate item, you need packaging that protects your package and complies with mailing regulations. Trust Chicago Mailing Tube Co. for reliable shipping containers with a variety of dimensions, including 4" x 12" crimped-end kraft tubes.

These tubes meet the requirements for shipping with most major shipping organizations, including the United States Postal Service, FedEx, and UPS.

Why Choose a Wider Tube?

Our 4" diameter tubes are our widest available option, though if you do need a wider tube, we can create a one that fits your needs and specifications. These wide tubes can accommodate broader and bulkier items than any other container. For example, a 4" tube can ship artwork printed on heavy canvas or even poster board. These thick materials can prove difficult to ship because they cannot be rolled tight enough to fit into a narrow container.

Use a wide tube for the following:

  • Large amounts of documents
  • Thick textiles
  • Wide objects such as cylindrical lamps or industrial hardware

Our 12" long tubes accommodate most items measuring between approximately 10" and 11.5".

Need a longer tube that still features a wide diameter? Visit our Snap Loc page for a full list of our available crimped-end tube dimensions.
