Running out of pockets? Here’s an idea.

What you’ll need for this Tinnovation:

  • Quart or One-gallon Garrett Tin
  • Hammer and Nail
  • Drywall anchor
  • Screw and washer
  • Screwdriver
  • Hooks


  1. Enjoy your Garrett Popcorn!
  2. Wash and dry the tin.
  3. Remove the lid and set aside for a separate Tinnovation.
  4. Flip the tin body over and tap a hole with the nail and hammer.
  5. Determine where you want to hang your Garrett mailbox. Tap the dry wall anchor into place according to the instructions.
  6. Line up the hole in the tin with the dry wall anchor. Thread the washer onto the screw and secure the tin onto the wall with a screwdriver. Hang hooks from the lip of the tin.
  7. Store your notes, gadgets, gizmos and keys!
