Homemade cooler dividers for Canyon cooler prospector 103



I just got the Canyon Cooler Prospector 103 for my raft. I ordered a few baskets but didn't get the divider inserts so I am going to make them out of white plastic cutting board material.

Here is the template if you want to make your own. These dividers will sit below the baskets in the first position so they can slide freely and stop the baskets in the second lower position. More pics to follow.

A good friend of mine has a company that uses that material in production. I was going to get it from him. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful

I just went to Walmart bought cutting boards there and used the part with the handle cut out on top. Left one full height top the top on the inside of the cooler. Made 9" and two 4 3/4" you can kinda see the 9" in this photo. I put half circle holes on the bottom to speed up draining if I need to and notched the bottom corners also. Mine fit so tight (no gaps) the cooler took forever to drain.

Great tips Bighorn! Id love to see pics of the dividers without the bottles in the cooler. I had wondered if the dividers would interfere with drainage. Thanks

Did the exact same thing with a cutting board that came with a kitchen sink!

Another good source for the cutting boards is a restaurant supply store. The material is relatively easy to cut to fit your cooler. Way less expensive than buying the ones that Yeti tries to sell and are custom just for you.
