Tool Boxes

A toolbox, also called tool chest or workbox, depends on the owner’s trade. The toolbox carries, organizes, and protects the user’s implements for his profession, craft or hobby.

A toolbox typically has a hinged cover. Attached to the cover is a handle and latches to secure the top to the rest of the toolbox. Smaller compartments can be found inside. Bigger workboxes often have a removable tray that rests inside the rim of the box. Usually, a larger single compartment is directly below the tray.

As consumers have different needs and requirements, toolbox producers carry a large spectrum of models in different styles and various shapes and sizes.
Toolbox Alternatives

Made of molded plastic, toolsets are cases which typically contain various automotive or household tools. Particular items snap into designated recesses in the toolset. This makes tool organization easier than with a normal toolbox. However, one cannot customize the tool selection or add tools or supplies. One may still need a toolbox to supplement the toolset.

Aprons and toolbelts afford the user much portability, although these cannot carry numerous tools at once. A toolbox may be required for long-term storage and a toolbelt for temporary carriage.

Bucket organizers are heavy-duty fabric bags fitted into a large bucket. This alternative is cheap as well as lightweight, rivaling the toolbox in the carrying and storage of tools. A large number of pockets assist in improved organization and visibility. Since the bucket organizer has no lid, this container may spill some of the contents. This also means that tools will be better protected in a toolbox.

Autocarts are utility carts that have pivoting bases. These carts are stored in vehicles. Users use these for their equipment, tools, or supplies. Autocarts are portable shopping carts, integrating the advantages of toolbelts and toolboxes in one.
