Why a tool bag is a must have for your home
A basic toolkit is essential, whether you’re a plumber, electrician, or even an enthusiastic DIYer or a homeowner. No matter what skill level you have, you may need a few tools like the good old screwdriver, spanner, a socket set, hammers, wrenches…the list can go on.
But, where do you keep your tools? While you can store your tools in a closet or drawer or plastic box at your home, garage or office, it’s more convenient to keep them all together in a tool bag. In a tool bag, all your tools will be easily accessible. Moreover, you can even carry your tools easily to other job locations if they are stored in a bag.
It is essential that you have the right tool bag so that you are able to find the right tool when necessary.
So, why a tool bag is a must have for your home? There are several benefits of using a tool bag. Let us take a look.
Easy to carry: You need a tool bag to carry tools when you are travelling from one job to another. It is much easier and more comfortable than lugging them in a huge toolbox or carrying them in different plastic storage boxes. A tool bag is the best way to store and transport tools over long distances.
Organise tools: Tools do not come in one size; they come in different sizes, shapes, lengths and weights. If you dump a bulky wrench set and a longer socket set together, it is difficult to retrieve the tools. Tool bags come with different compartments, some have dividers and small zipped pouches. You could easily organise your tools better in the numerous pockets and compartments. RS Components have a range of tool bags that come with different-sized pockets for specific tools on the interior and exterior sides. You can even keep your loose bits, nuts and bolts in zipped pouches.
Waterproof: And what if it rains? No worries, another advantage of owning a tool bag is that it is made of waterproof materials. You can carry your tool bag even in wet conditions, without worrying about the tools getting wet or damaged.
Hands-free tool bags: Do you need to walk from one location to another or catch a crowded train? Your tool bag can free your hands as you do not need to carry it in your hand. You can strap it on your shoulder or wear it on your back, leaving your hands free to retrieve tools.
Easy to store: Tool bags are more flexible than metal tool boxes. Once your job is done, you can store your tools back into your containers and store your tool bag easily.
Tools will last longer: If stored properly, your tools will last longer as they are less exposed to the risk of damage or loss than if they’re left lying around. Also, you will never lose a tool, as compartmentalisation means everything inside can be well organised
Easy to retrieve: Many tool bags come with first-order retrievability. So, you do not have to move one tool to get to another one and every tool has a specific place, is accessible and is visible. You can retrieve any tool quickly and improve your efficiency at your job.
