A normal tools box could be around 13 to 15 inches in length, along with 4 to 7 inches in width and height with different slots. It is useful to keep all your tools in one place and carry them around wherever you go. The toolboxes are very important for professionals like plumbers, electricians, gardeners, automobile mechanics and others who often work a lot with their tools. A good tools’ chest will ensure that you have all your tools in one place and can carry them around, especially when you work in different places. Good quality tool boxes are made of plastic or wood to ensure that they are heavy duty and high impact resistant and yet lightweight and portable. Some tool boxes come with special nickel plated metal latches while some come with special trays to separate out the bigger tools from the smaller ones.
Customized tools’ box can also be made available for professionals who would want specific storage for different sets of tools. These boxes often come with smaller pad locks so that the tools can be securely locked inside preventing the lid from opening up with its contents falling off. High quality tools chest usually comes with a good grip that is coated with rubber to ensure that there isn’t undue stress on your fingers when the tool box needs to be carried around. For those who work in corrosive environments, there are boxes that have galvanized metal used to prevent them from corrosion. Similarly there are foam boxes too which are water resistant, ideal for professionals like plumbers who usually work close to watery areas.
You can also request for bigger, extra heavy duty tools box which is capable of carrying a larger number of tools without cracking or breaking near the handle because of excess weight. These tool boxes have a water resistant seal that protects the tools inside from getting corroded or rusted because of water seeping through. There are portable half trays which help in organizing the smaller and bigger tools in a better way. You can also find a tools chest that comes with a V-ruler on the top of the lids.
The more professional and expensive tools box also has characteristics that are tailor-made for providing heavy duty service and longevity. For example, you can go for a tools chest, which comes with rubber padded corners that provide shock absorption properties to the whole box preventing it from damage due to heavy impact or wear and tear. Similarly, in some tool boxes you will find handles that run along the entire length of the 10 inch box to distribute the weight better instead of creating stress on smaller handles. Such boxes can be carried by two people too if required. Metal latches and lockable eyelets are provided in some high quality tool boxes too. There are wooden tool chests which come with rolling wheels for carrying a large number of tools from one end of the workshop to the other end if needed.
