lighter and faster when our things are organized. That is absolutely true and we can attest to
that with how we arrange our things. The same goes with our tools.
be placed in a convenient area that allows easy access when needed. A cantilever tool box can
help us with this purpose by housing multi layers of trays in an easy to open box.
cantilever tool box (sometimes spelled toolbox, as one word) is an important addition to
everyone’s garage, shop, or work truck.
cantilever tool boxes are like any other types of tool boxes where you place your tools in order
to protect them from getting lost or from any possible damages.
What makes the cantilever
toolbox different is the compartment it holds. When opened, the box will reveal layers of trays that can be used
to store various items. That’s the only feature that makes cantilever tool box more useful than other forms of
toolbox gives you the ability to group tools according to types. With a regular tool box, you have to mix tools
with others in order to keep them. This requires you a lot of your precious time searching for what you need and
can even raise your temper. The design of the cantilever tool box eliminates that hassle and actually saves you
Grouping similar tools
altogether is possible with cantilever tool boxes. With its multilayer tray design, looking for a single tool
will only focus you to the right tray. Large and heavy tools can be placed at the center compartment that
contains that largest area, while smaller and light tools can be placed on the sides. This solution can actually
do more than just a simple arrangement.
The use of cantilever
toolboxes is not limited to storing tools such as pliers, screwdrivers, and wrenches. Wood working materials
such as hammers, epoxy, and drill bits can also be stored inside a cantilever tool box without any hassle.
A cantilever toolbox can
come with different numbers of trays in them. A few of these tool boxes are made with only three trays while
some are designed to contain up to five trays. Some can even come with up to seven compartments that can be used
to contain various tools and materials.
The compartments that
divide the cantilever tool box into several internal sections can be a whole tray. Or a tray divided into
several smaller boxes for housing small objects such as nails and screws.

Before planning to purchase
a cantilever toolbox, it is essential that a buyer must know what they plan to store in it. Despite being able
to store numerous types of tools, it would actually help organize things when similar tools are stored together.
For instance, cabinet tools should be separated from other types of tools such as industrial and mechanical
The number of trays a
cantilever toolbox can contain is another essential part of the item that needs to be checked, since it can only
contain certain number of tools. There are cantilever tool boxes that can hold up to 200 hundred tools, as well
as smaller ones while some are only able to hold 100 pieces. The more trays present means the more tools a box
Consider the material that
you want the toolbox to be constructed of. Metals are
the most popular, but there are also durable, hard plastics, as well as an occasional wood toolbox that you'll come across, although
the latter doesn't typically come with in the cantiliever variety.
The size of the cantilever
tool box should also be checked. The size dictates the measurement of the tools that can be stored in the tool
box. If large tools are to be stored, then it is just appropriate to aim for larger tool boxes. A 460 x 205 x
230 measure should fit most of industrial materials available in the market.
