Wouldn’t it be great to be able to find the tool you need when you need it? Well, there’s never been a better time to give your tool shed or garage a bit of a spring clean and to get those tools in order.
To help you on the way to organisational success, here’s a rundown of some top tool storage solutions that are sure to help you introduce order to your collection.
Tool boxes, tool chests and tool cabinets
Start by having a look at the number of tools you’ve got lying around. If that number’s pretty low, then our Halfords 3 Drawer Metal Portable Tool Chest could be the answer to your tool storage needs.
This chest has been designed and engineered with DIY enthusiasts in mind, and can sit neatly on top of a workbench or shelf. It features a top compartment for frequently used hand tools and three drawers that are perfect for those little fiddly bits like bolts and screws. The drawers also lock when the lid is closed, making this a safe and secure storage option.
If you’re looking for something with a bit more space, then we offer a wide range of tool cabinets such as the Halfords 5 Drawer Cabinet – Black.
This lockable cabinet has deeper drawers at the bottom, making it perfect for larger items such as breaker bars and power tools. The drawers operate on ball bearing sliders for easy opening and drawer liners help to protect your tools. The cabinet is also compatible with the Halfords Advanced modular tray sets and is mounted on wheels, so that you can easily move it around your garage or tool shed while you’re working.
Our tool cabinets can also be supplemented with additional side cabinets such as the Halfords 4 Drawer Side Cabinet – Black or the Halfords 1 Door 1 Shelf Side Cabinet – Black, giving you a wider working space and even more storage. Or if you’ve got a lot of tools to organise, then you can opt for an additional top chest or middle chest.
Another option is to trade up to the Halfords Advanced range of cabinets and chests. With Halfords Advanced, you get all of the same features plus more drawers, a larger maximum weight limit, soft-close drawers and a three-year guarantee.
The Halfords Advanced 6 Drawer Tool Chest – Black also comes with power cable access through the lid, which means that you can feed a cable through from the outside and charge any power tools while the chest remains locked. The Rolson Magnetic Workshop Extension Lead 2m with USB works well here to neatly fix the extension lead in place.
For the ultimate storage solution, you’ll want tool sets that fit perfectly inside your Halfords tool cabinets and tool chests. Look no further than the Halfords Advanced modular tray sets range.
These tray sets offer the complete range of tools, from adjustable wrenches and screwdrivers to spanners to pliers. The range also includes socket sets in 1/4”, 3/8” and 1/2”, as well as socket accessories such as extension bars and bit sockets. All of the tools come with a lifetime guarantee, which means we’ll be happy to replace them in-store if any break under normal use.
The Stanley SortMaster Organiser is the answer if you’re looking for somewhere to store all of your loose screws and fittings. The product includes removable dividers that mean you can create a setup to match your requirements and it can be neatly stored away in the bottom of a tool cabinet or on a shelf.
Magnetic accessories, such as the Draper Magnetic Can and Screwdriver Holder or the Draper Magnetic Tool Holder, are also useful additions to any workspace. Simply stick them to the side of your metal Halfords storage solution or any other magnetic surface and you’re good to go.
You might have some bits and pieces that won’t fit in a tool chest or cabinet and if so, then a shelving unit is a good investment. The Hilka 5 Tier Boltless Shelving unit is incredibly quick to put together, while still being strong and sturdy. The 265kg shelf weight capacity also makes it ideal for all of your shelving needs.
To complete the tidy garage or tool shed look, why not invest in some garage matting? Not only will the Halfords 6pc Black Floor Mat Set provide you with a comfortable surface to work on, but it’s easy to clean too.
