Product Details

The Pelican 1740 long case has interior dimensions of 40.98" x 12.92" x 12.13". The 1740 comes with 6 layers of foam: Base foam, convoluted lid foam and 4 layers of Pick N Pluck foam. Like some our extra large transport cases, the 1740 has extra deep cleats on the bottom which lock into the channels on the lid for superior stacking stability. On each side of the case there are strong, double-wide, two person handles for easier lifting.

The 1740 has 1 latch on each side as well as 4 on the front. The 2 wide body polyurethane wheels support heavy loads while the 2 Automatic Pressure Equalization Valves adjust interior pressure during altitude changes.

Pick N Pluck Foam

Pick N Pluck foam is Pelicans standard interior appointment for most of their cases. This no cutting required approach lets you shape the interior of the case by plucking out the pre-scored 1/2" sections. Simply lay the item over the gridded foam piece to determine what needs to go and then Pick N Pluck!

Watertight, crushproof, and dust proof

This Pelican Case is constructed of Polymer with an open cell core and solid wall making them stronger than solid core designs. During the construction process foaming agents are mixed in with polymer pellets, causing them to expand inside the mold. The outside skin is formed when the expanded pellets come in contact with the inside of the mold walls. This process is more time consuming that conventional injection molding but results in a structure that is more rigid and lighter than solid core wall designs.
One major advantage of open cell designs and closed cell walls is that in the event of an impact breaking through a panel the closed cell walls will act as a barrier preventing the fracture from penetrating the case.

A Polymer O-ring combined with tongue and groove design provides a waterproof and airtight seal keeping equipment dry and dust free.

Deflector Ribs

Deflector ribs are designed to protect the hinges and latches on pelican cases. An impact directed at the ribs will be deflected away from the case protecting the vital hinge and latch points.

Easy open Double Throw latches

Pelican latches offer amazing strength but open with a slight pull. It's called a double throw latch because it uses a secondary movement to create leverage making the opening of a pelican case almost effortless. These are available on the entire Pelican lineup.

Large 2 Person Fold down over molded handle

The Transport Cases have 2 handles; one on either side of the case and are large enough for 2 people to grab on and lift. The andles are molded for comfortable carry

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel pins are used in the hinges and handles for strength and durability

Stainless steel padlock protectors

Stainless steel fitted over the padlock holes for added strength and security.

Automatic Pressure Equalization Valve

Automatic Pressure Equalization Valve uses Gore-Tex technology to prevent pressure damage to the case while keeping contents dry and making the case easier to open.
