We’d bet that everyone here already understands that metal toolboxes aren’t really new for Stanley, considering the fact that Stanleyworks encompasses a few of the most well known high-end tool brands including MAC Tools and Proto. However, the idea of selling these larger toolboxes under the Stanley name is a change, and might help to alleviate one of the big problems with buying mechanics tools at Lowe’s and the ‘Depot — the lack of proper storage.
We haven’t seen these in person yet, but we’d be willing to bet that they’re competitive quality-wise with others in their price range. We hear from Stanley that there are more to come and that we’ll be seeing even more impressive stainless-steel versions widely available in the near future.
Anyway, if you run across one of these in stores, give it a look. This particular model features six drawers, a key lock, and fixed bar-style handles on each side. Pre-cut drawer liners are included — a feature that I wish more manufacturers would follow suit with.
While these are currently showing up on Stanley’s website (link below), we haven’t seen ’em in stores yet, and we can’t find pricing for ’em online. We’ll get you an MSRP — and some information on additional models — shortly, but we’ll all have to wait to see what they’re actually going to go for.
