Product information and further reviews for Toolboxes

Toolboxes such as those found in hardware stores are often already equipped with a basic set of DIY tools. Boxes with tool holders are better than cheap folding boxes. Simple, robust fabric aprons or belts are highly portable, whereas large professional tool boxes can accommodate an entire roster of tools.

Whether in the home improvement or the professional arena, a toolbox provides order and is therefore a must for anyone who owns more than a few screwdrivers, pliers and a hammer. The most common toolboxes found in hardware stores offer a basic set of tools for household and DIY projects. Especially popular are metal toolboxes which can be carried around with a handle, and in which tools can be stored according to size and type. These boxes are not particularly well arranged and often tend to be filled with unnecessary items. A better option are toolboxes with special tool holders that not only provide extra clarity, but also keep the tools firmly in place. For toolboxes which are also going to be used on the go, a relatively low weight is important. Plastic boxes are light, but at the cost of stability and resistance, while wood or even aluminium cases are relatively expensive. More suitable for mobile use are fabric aprons and belts; while their pockets and hangers cannot accommodate too many tools, they score highly in flexibility and comfort and are ideal for their use on ladders or scaffoldings. Finally, toolboxes for professional craftsmen are usually much larger, as they have to accommodate all their hand tools. To this effect, larger suitcase or tool trolleys with or without wheels and equipped with quality machine and tools are often used. In this case a clear and well thought out placement system is essential, as well as a rugged, weather-resistant design for the work site.
