Default Adding extra disc holders/spacers inside a Steelbook

I want to add a holder inside steelbooks for extra discs ie add the flipper middle bit you get inside Pinocchio/Snow White or to add a holder bit to the inside front cover if there isnt one already there

I'm not very good at describing what I want but a steel book that looks likes this

can have bits added so they can hold disc's like these

I just use a Binder to put all the discs in, this way I don't have to open the Steel everytime I want to watch a movie, makes things a lot easier.

There are plastic hubs you can buy that stick on to plastic surfaces to create a single extra disc holder.

What you are showing though compares apples to oranges. The SLEEPING BEAUTY uses custom plastics that the 2012 does not. And the last picture of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is an IronPack, not a SteelBook.

You can exchange SteelBook plastics and metal covers, but you can't swap amongst SteelBooks and IronPacks.

Many people will use dented SteelBooks as parts and create hybrid SteelBooks with more or less disc holders.

I've been looking for something like this too. I want to get rid of my dvd cases but since I don't have a bluray player in my bedroom, would like to keep the discs. Will these spider things keep the disc far enough off the case so it won't get scratched?

I'm surprised there wasnt a sticky for steel/iron/metalbook modifications

and I'll be ordering some today, so if you can wait til they arrive I can vouch.
though they should at least hold the disc a few mili-meters above a surface

Hopefully the adhesive they use will hold onto the plastic of the inner case so that they won't fall off.

I purchase a 100 of those sticky hubs and to be honest I was a little disappointed in them. After a few days the adhesive goes all tacky and they begin to slide down. I just decided to swap my 1 disc frames with 2 disc frames it was a much better solution. As long as you have plenty of empty frames.

That's what I was afraid of. Looks like I'll just have to stick with putting the dvd copies in a paper sleeve and sticking them in the cases. I don't have extra steelbooks and don't think it's worth it at $10-$20 minimum per case to buy extra steels to swap the insides with.

I'm looking for something like this, but I want an actual 2-disc tray to replace a 1-disc tray. Anyone know what the cheapest steelbook with a 2-disc tray could be?

People ain't gonna like to hear this. But, keep in mind I only do it if there is a BONUS FEATURE disc that is included without a holder for it, which means I've only done it maybe 2 or 3 times. I WILL NEVER DO THIS to include a DVD copy or digital copy disc inside my steelbooks...

[Show spoiler]I take an old Blu-ray case, cut the disc holder out of the back of the case, AND SUPERGLUE THAT INSIDE THE STEELBOOK!


True story. I will never sell my collection of steelbooks, so I figure why the hell not. It's certainly a lot more permanent than any 'peel and stick on' product.
