Tool Case Buying Tips

Lets get started! To choose the best case for your needs you should have the answers to the following questions:

• Do you want the rugged durability of a hard-sided tool case or the convenience of the compact size and light weight of a Cordura soft-side tool case?

TIP: Soft-side tool kits with shoulder straps work well for situations where you have to climb ladders or access small crawl spaces.

• Does your specific job require the use of large full-size tools, or do you mainly use small precision tools?

TIP: For full-size tools, a deeper case (8", 10" or 12") will provide the space you need.

• How much test equipment will you be carrying with you?

TIP: If you will need multiple pieces of test equipment, a large case with foam padding is a great choice.

• Would a handle and wheels be beneficial to you?

TIP: If you travel frequently or can't seem to get front row parking downtown, the Roto-Roller and "The TANK" wheeled tool cases will make your life easier.

• Will you be taking your tool kit into extreme conditions?

TIP: If your tool kit will be exposed to adverse weather, or rough handling, get your kit in the incredible Pelican Protector Case.

Polyethylene has very good chemical resistance to corrosives as well as stress cracking resistance.
