When an aol free sample showed up in my mailbox in a dvd-style keeper case, my first thought was "cool"... my second thought was "why is this cool, I'll never need to replace a dvd case, these things are built like rubber battleships!".


Sometime later I was entertaining a date, she and I were going to watch a new dvd I had just bought. I handed her the shrink-wrapped covered keeper case and asked her to open it while I went off to prepare a snack. When I returned she was frowning, said she couldn't get it "open all the way". She handed me a keeper case with the shrink wrap plastic gone, and the clear heavy vinyl jacket liner ripped to shreds!


Needless to say, the AOL keeper case came in handy!

I performed keeper-case replacement surgury on a Jurassic Park dvd because the dvd-holder-teeth were all "broke-off", now the dinosaurs say "You've Got Mail" instead of "Roar".

That's great! Two posts and two good laughs...


FWIW, I keep one of the AOL cases handy around each of my video game consoles and DVD player...always seems that when I pull out the old game/movie to replace with another I can't find the original case. So i put the new game into the player, and put the old game into the new game's keep case. After about a month of this, every disk I own will be in the wrong case :) So the AOL case is handy for "transitional" purposes.


Now I want to know how the rest of the date went ("at the restaurant she ripped up the menu, and she pulled the handle off of the car door...")

Is there a common B&M that sells replacement Amaray Keep Cases? All I see are Alpha style ones at Suncoast.


As a side note, Time Warner's AOL uses keep cases, WB / New Line / HBO uses snappers. Why the difference?

I have taken the AOL cases, cleaned them up and used them to get rid of some of my crapper snappers.

Witness "the Matrix", I took the cardboard cover, skinned some of the thickness away, and cut it to fit the keepcase.

Any of you remember a product that crafters used to use...you brushed this clear stuff on picture, once it dried you could soak it in water and peel the backing away, this left the picture paper thin...mine is not quit as thin as I'd like.

If she wasn't smart enough to open a simple DVD case, you probably got very lucky that night =)



Although I must say, aren't THREE "Security Device" stickers a bit of overkill? I'll order five DVDs and it will take me an hour to get them unwrapped without damaging the cases.

I also have a a few (3) of the AOL dish cases on hand. Never know when theyll come in handy, I still have a bunch of the AOL floppies that I reformatted, to bad you couldnt reformat a CD, with all the AOL CDs I get in the mail Id never have to buy blank disks again.

Why not just print up a new cover? I just used mega-search to look up "Matrix", picked one out - matrix cover - so now all I need to do is print on a color printer. Note - to make this work I need to print on 11"x14" paper as the printable area on 8.5"x11" isn't quite big enough.
