Default Snap-On In cart power strip help

I want to add one of those power strips (KAPS4) inside my box (KRSC46) that looks like this:



The website tells me I need part# KRSC404APV in order to mount on of these inside of the KRSC46. The description it gives is "Accessory mounting/adaptor panel. Black Textured finish." It is also twice as much as the actual stip.

Apparently this is what it looks like. Why in the world do I need this, which appears to be used to add a side locker, in order to put a powerstrip inside my box???

You don't need that, just order the power strip. It's the same one I put in my KRSC33.

I really can't see why I would need that thing but on the site it says:

Use accessories on EPIQ Series KEWN Workcenters, Masters Series KRL Workcenters, Classic Series KRA Workcenters plus KRSC33 Series Roll Carts and KRSC100A/101 Series Mobile Workstations. Use on KRSC46 Series Roll Carts requires the KRSC404APV Accessory Panel.

If it were me I would just order the power strip first and see how it goes. If you absolutely need the panel for whatever reason you can order it later. Shipping is free I assume so no loss there. I can't imagine why you would need it either.

So that the president of Snap-On can get that ivory handled backscratcher he's been after.



I'd use double stick tape on the inside rather than drilling holes in the box.

If I go the route of just using tape it is probably smartest to just put in a $5 power strip in there and tape it next to the cord hole haha.

I was going to ask if there's a hole for the cord. Me, I'd go down through the bottom but I'm anal about putting holes in things like toolboxes. I cringed when I saw a friend start drilling holes in his brand new Snap-On box to mount his old side box to it.

Lowe's and Home Deopt both cary the inserts for wholes. They have then in many sizes.
If you need a power strip just buy one a cheap one and screw it to the end of your box.
I thnk having the cords going across the tools will be a pain in the box. I have power stripps on the front of all my work benches. I have then everywhere. In fact I might mount it on the lower part or one of the legs. It will be out of the way and you can put the cord and tail on the bottom shelf. I think you will find that the cords will be in the way if you put it in the top. That is just me.

Yeah that would have caused me to pucker as well.

I sold a box to a coworker a while back, and not even ten minutes after I had the money, I walked out into the shop to see him drilling holes through the front of the box, to hold some fugly stop bracket he made to park the box better.

I just had to turn around and walk out.

I can tell you 100% that the 404apv adapter panel is not needed too mount the power cord.

Ok great!

Any regrets installing it?
Do you find the cords get cluttered inside the box?

No regrets. I can charge my screwdriver battery , my drill battery, my cell phone and run a drop light with no worries.
For the drill and screwdriver chargers , i just run the cords along the outside edge and tie them up with bread ties or safety wire.Then i tuck them under the power strip.

What if you were to mount an ordinary extension?

I wouldn't install a $5.00 pwr strip unless it was dirt cheap, a descent surge/filtered pwr strip. This will help protect your chargers and tools a bit more.
