The thing about having tools around the shop is we tend to use them for things they weren’t intended for. The Stanley Guard System truck-toolbox is a rugged piece of solid gear. While in the shop for testing, we discovered it also doubles as a handy beer cooler.
Not only are the folks at Stanley not full of crap about this bad boy being water-tight from the inside or outside, but when deployed in what we call the “beer configuration” you can lock those mooching free-loaders who didn’t bring any beer to the Christmas party out of the holiday spirits. Plus, large wheels on one end and a handle on the other made it easy to pull the thing outside and dump the leftover water.
The toolbox was a huge hit with our friends of the shop. However we must give one small piece of advise about this setup — make sure you write the code down before you start enjoying too many of the contents inside. Otherwise you might have a bunch of loaded up middle-aged tool guys frantically trying codes and reading toolbox instructions to try and get back in. We’re just saying; it could happen.
