    Small Parts Storage Improvement

    I developed a problem of having to much junk all over and was ordered to take care of the issue.
    My existing strategy was to store small parts in dedicated plastic boxes that I would buy ad hoc or repurpose suitable containers. As I was running out of storage space I noted manufacurers didn't give much thought to stacking their own boxes not mentioning compatibility between different products. Boxes would slide obout and bigger ones meant for larger items even collapse under stacked weight.
    Saturday i checked local big box home improves store and sure enough my problem was addressed for the second decade of 21st century. There were several storage system offerings that featured rigid, stackable boxes with interlocks. I selected common store brand hoping it will remain avaliable for sale when I need to buy more.



    This version box is for small parts, dedicated fasteners and etc.



    Internal bins are removable



    Finally mentioned technical revolution, stacking locks allow for secure joining of the boxes

    I bought only two of the smaller boxes to try and they worked well. I was able to stuff ton of spares and throw out baggie of messy packaging. Box cost about 10 dollars, I will be back for more.

    I bought it walk-in and don't see this particular Husky model online. I bet it is being sold on your market under different brand name or if not exactly the same then with similar designe features. I saw at least 3 other companies selling similar boxes in this store so it must be common. It is call stackable parts organizer here.

    This is another box I bought for larger, heavier parts:



    Each has foldable carry handle and dividers are removable.




    Those are also stackable and lockable. Silver tab visible on the pictures lock boxes securely together. This box is part of a larger system with different sizes available. In store price was 15 dollars.

    Below is a link to review of that stackable system. Too bad I didn't see that top small parts organiser in the review available separately

    Spied small parts organizer box in a store that fits my 22 inch stackable boxes.



    Couldn't buy it unfortunately as it was a part of rolling set. Just found it on fleabay.
