Snap On portable mechanics service sets protect valuable tools and equipment

Everything starts with the mobile tool case that features rugged trolley wheels and handle for easy and secure mobility

Kenosha, Wisc., August 20, 2010 — You can't always bring the big job to the tool crib, so Snap-on Industrial is bringing the tool crib to the job.

Portable Mechanics' Service Sets put large and small hand tools, including screw drivers, wrenches and pliers along with multimeters and other specialty equipment, at easy reach for professionals looking for maximum protection of their tools and equipment combined with great accessibility. A hard-sided Pelican 0450 case houses a choice of two comprehensive tool offerings.

Everything starts with the mobile tool case that features rugged trolley wheels and handle for easy and secure mobility. Each configuration comes with seven custom foam-equipped removable drawers; an integrated top tray includes custom foam tool storage as well.

Two automatic pressure equalization values keep water molecules out and ensure easy opening, whether you're at 1,000 feet below the ocean's surface or at 50,000 feet in the air. Cases are also water, temperature, drop and impact resistant.

Each unit meets DOD (Air Force) operation guidelines and complements existing safety programs. Tool coding etched into each tool with corresponding number laser printed into the tool's individual storage space simplifies inventory control and maximizes overall accountability.
