You thought you were done outfitting your shop — Stanley’s taken a rather mundane staple of the shop, a stacking parts bin, and found a way to make you want to throw out your old bins and buy new ones.  They equipped an 11.5″ deep by 6-3/8″ wide by 5-1/8″ high bin with a sliding cover, not unlike a rolltop desk, and gave it a handle for easy transport.

The sliding cover on the Stock and Carry clicks shut to keep the contents inside and dust and dirt out.  You can sit them on a workbench, hang them from racks, or put them Stanley’s Lock and Stock Organizer.

The organizer carries six Stock and Carry bins — which actually seem to be a different size then the ones above — plus a large bottom drawer and top organizer on two 7″ wheels. The 15-7/8″ wide by 25″ long by 24″ high organizer has a steel chassis with side handles to lug it around.

A three-pack of bins runs $20 at Amazon. You can pay anywhere from $1 to $10 for a single plastic stacking bin, so whether paying a little over $6 apiece is worth it depends on how well these are built.  The Lock and Stock organizer will run you $150.

    Anyone used this? It’s on walmart.com MUCH cheaper ($88 I think). Other Stanley FatMax boxes I’ve used are too flimsy…how is this one?

    I purchased the Lock and Stock organizer from Walmart.com and had it shipped to store. Overall the unit is solidly built, only complaint is the rolltop covers are a little chintzy. I also think it would be beneficial if they had specialty bins, such as small parts organizers or double or triple wide bins that you could use instead of the singles.

    Overall, worth the < $90 that I paid, probably not worth $150.

    I have a friend who acquired these bins – I don’t recall seeing the roll around cart portion, just some of the bins. Most of the bins had roll-tops that had failed. When I was on the road in the service truck, these might have been worth a try. However, I work from the shop and use the big roll around, double sided bin rack I got at HF. No roll-tops but the shop floor is nice and smooth so no bumps to jostle things out.

    Took a look at Wal-Mart – $84

    Wow! I almost forgot to mention my favorite roll-around – the Mobile-Shop. I think it has been mentioned here in the past but it is the “top Dog” in roll around shop stuff.

    Of course, you might need more than one credit card or at least a co-signer! Very pricey but understandably so.

    We have one shop that’s equipped with Stanley Vidmar storage products and Rotabins for small parts – both top quality.
