you need to serious de-clutter your box
my pet peeve is techs that buy a snap-on krl whatever box and fill it with junk/parts/papers

you cannot even see the best feature... i had an loop on the right handle of the upper box.. i could stick my solid cloth 9 1/2' foot beach umbrella in it.. and work out in the rain without getting wet. that is currently parked right now.. i use my fingers and brain to help others now. i think i have pulled a drawer open twice this month..

The only thing I don't like is the drawer locks needing to be pushed sideways all the time.



Wow. That yellow looks real good on there . Even cooler is that you are towing with the old Hot rod .

I have only one drawer in the new box that doesn't have tools in it. I have stuff that is used regularly .
OGRE.. No papers in any drawer except the one top right that is made for paperwork. That is also one of my pet peeves. I have seen guys that buy the big ol box and it is empty. They are always borrowing tools.
I have a policy that if I borrow a tool twice, I buy one.

pulling drawers open doesn't appear to be your problem... closing them is
just jerking your chain

i actually had them pulled out for the picture.. the bottom drawer was about 3/4 full of various nuts and bolt and excess fasteners.. as ballast.. i have tipped that puppy over a few times. its not pretty when it goes over..

i have wanted a new box for a 20 years.. got the bottom box in 1979.. the top box in 85 to replace the previous top box that was stolen and full of snap on and mac tools while i was out on a mobile repair gig..

Awesome box! You won't trip over it in the dark. I like "SubLime Green". The HF "Pro" cabinet is very good for the couple hundred bucks you can find it for, it could stand to have a wider base. I bought one for my Dad's polebarn to handle overflow when he retired. He likes it just fine, much heftier than the Craftsman and etc
