Carson valve box lids

If I understand correctly.....carson is not around, or bought out (whatever I cant find the old style replacements)? I need to replace lids from round 6 and 10 inch. Not really wanting to replace the whole box. What are yall doing for the solution? Universal type, or what else fits?

Thanks

My supplier, Ewing, has tons of Carson boxes and lids for sale and listed on their website. Maybe your supplier just stopped carrying them.

I saw a brand shift a while back, and the suppliers explained it was because Carson had bumped the prices.

Thanks,
We have an Ewing in here in the state that is going to order me some from Arizona.
DanaMac... the name sounds familiar, I had lived in Dolorado in the past, did you happen to work for CoCal in the past?

No, I haven't. And I'm not sure where Dolorado is Colorado, yes. Dolorado, no.

Due to design changes, newer Carson lids may not fit older boxes.

I'm sure 'Dolorado' is a typo... he probably meant 'Dullorado' but no matter where you live, life is only as exciting as you make it or want it.

How many of you guys use NDS boxes? I see them at home center stores, and I believe they are not the same thing NDS sells as "pro" boxes, but I see more of them (the home center versions) in the field these days.

I've never used them but seen them. The lids are a pain to get on and probing usually results in a broken lid.

So far it is a no go. It seems Carson stopped making the old style. Ewing only has the newer style. I have a call in to Carson to see what they can do, and waiting to hear back. I believe it is model 0708-00-tc-2

There are supposed to be some 'universal' lids for the 6-inch boxes. 10-inch, I don't know. Since most boxes are now sold with overlapping tops instead of the older 'drop-in' style lids, you may not find exact matches.
