That looks *exactly* like the box my Balun Designs choke balun is mounted in!
I've also had good luck using Tupperware-type containers found at the grocery store, or plastic storage boxes found at Lowe's and Home Depot.
I'm just finishing re-installing my HF vertical, and I used a plastic box from Home Depot to mount the SGC-230 inside of.
