We classify the compact $3$-manifolds whose boundary is a union of $2$-spheres, and which embed in $T \times I \times I$, where $T$ is a triod and $I$ the unit interval. This class is described explicitly as the set of punctured handlebodies. We also show that any $3$-manifold in $T \times I \times I$ embeds in a punctured handlebody.
