Since the box says "this side up" my guess is that it's bottles/cans of fluid.

That's funny.

So far no correct answer. Fastener was close, kinda.

I shite you not, this is what was in the box when I cut it open. I told them I didn't want a case, just one.

I told the part guy I didn't want to pay for the box and paper either, just the radiator cap. 😁

One thing for sure, USPS and UPS would not have been able to damage that cap. My part is safe. 👍

As I'm reading this thread I have a box from Home Depot beside me. It's 13.5"x12"x8", the product in it is 2"x4.5"x7". I'm glad it was free shipping!

For a company that prides itself on being green, that seems awfully wastefull.

If you have a cat, crumple the paper into a ball and put the box on its side. Toys galore for the cat.

If you put the box outside, I bet a cat would eventually come and sit in it, so, you could get a free cat.

There is actually a tiny kitten running around that I've been trying to catch. You both may be on to something.

What a huge waste of packaging...and I though amazon was the king of over packaging. The award now goes to SOA.
