Lightweight aluminum stowage tray made by Intercontinental Mfg. Co. of Dallas, Texas, designed to fit in a stowage locker on the Space Shuttle's Spacelab, measuring 16″ x 15″ x 7″, identified on the front with stenciled part numbers: "SED46100232-308, S/N 1027." The tray is assembled utilizing riveted construction. There are two Nomex strap pull handles on both the front and back sides (each identified inside with a stenciled part number). Nine white Velcro squares on the bottom of the tray would have allowed it to be secured inside Spacelab when removed from its stowage locker. Two labels, “FRONT” and “BACK," are attached to their respective sides. Tied to the back handle is a "JSC Project Parts Tag" denoting it as Class I flight hardware with an original unit cost of $1250; another label is affixed to the back panel. Based on the Parts ID tag, this tray likely was never flown, and it was downgraded to Class III prior to disposal. The consignor notes that this was purchased as NASA surplus.
