Maintenance Tool Bag Tips

Maintenance Tool Bag Tips

| QUICK TIP TUESDAY |

The trusty toolbag – most think of this item as something mechanics or handymen use to store their tools, but a toolbag can be useful in many other industries as they come with convenient compartments and storage solutions and with the handle and shoulder strap it can be a easier mode of transportation then a briefcase or box.

I use a toolbag to store the smaller tools and utensils i use for my bond and detailing jobs. This helps me keep all the tools i need close to hand, and save return trips to the work van when the need arises to find a specific or odd tool.

So give it a go – whether you’re a computer tech, artist, or you have a job that requires you to be mobile then a toolbag may be a good solution to make your job just that little bit easier.
