Secure Your Tool

Let's face it, power tools aren't cheap. We spend a ton of our hard earned cash on them and we rely on them daily. Without them many of us wouldn't be able to earn a living. It's that simple.

When I saw this question on Twitter, I thought we should get our heads together in the Toolstop office and look at the various ways we can, not only security mark, but make sure are tools are safe.

First things first, get a decent tool box, either for on-site or for in your vehicle. Make sure it's lockable. Here are some examples;

Jobox heavy-duty storage box. This is a cracker, no exterior handles, lids are heavily reinforced to resist pry bars and forced entry.

This next one is a little smaller and is designed for use in the back of your van or truck.

Armorgard TB12 Tuffbank Truck Box, ultra robust 5 lever deadlocks with anti-drill plates on both sides and anti-cut rollers in deadbolt, this is a great piece of kit allowing you to securely lock your tools in the back of your van.

Finally, Armorgard SBC5 Strongbank.

This is monster, sitting at 1635 x 700 x 1275mm, comes complete with 2 locks and 5 keys.

OK, that's where to store your tools sorted. But what about when you're using tools around the job site. How can you help secure them? We recommend engraving all of your tools, marking them as your own. Check this out;

Brennenstuhl 1500743 Signograph Engraver, a powerful engraver with interchangeable hardened sylus and hard metal stylus. It's especially suited for engraving onto hard surfaces as well as soft rubbers and plastics, so there's no excuse for not engraving your power tools with your initials or phone number etc.

What do you do to secure your tools?

Clichéd as it sounds, you can't put a price on safety and peace of mind in that safety.
