Default Sort-A-Tool Wrench tray organizer

I've had a few of these for quite awhile, and really to like them a lot.



Problem is, they only go up to 19mm.

Do you know of any this same style and quality that go up to larger sizes?

Not full, but I found this online.



It's nice because you can easily see the size label on them, they drop in and come out really nicely, and they stay put.

Looks like in the picture you could have 2 of each size wrench in the tray (I have two sets of SAE non-ratcheting wrenches & it would be nice to store them on edge like that). Then I could get a second tray for my metric non-ratcheting wrenches also.

I have spotted that tray at my local sears, just never bought one....not sure if it would work better or save more space compared to the racks I currently have?

I have these trays, and love them. They keep everything very neat, just don't mind the mess in the middle.

They are REALLY nice, I just need them to go bigger.

I use these, they are larger, but I am able to have four wrenches for each size fit in the space allowd up to 3/4. The metric tray can hold up to 24mm wrenches.

Default Re: Sort-A-Tool Wrench tray organizer

I bought one of the sort-a-tool organizers from Sears and returned it two days later. I just didn't like having my SAE and Metric wrenches all together. Maybe if I had two of them like blown94conv with separate SAE and Metric stickers I would have liked it better. I wound up buying these:http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/w...1127_200371127, but from Harbor Freight for $8 each ($10-20% coupon). For the price they are great though each will take up a whole drawer. I thought at first it wasted a lot of space with the allen key slots, but I've found them to be useful. Not sure what I'm going to do with the wrench slots on the left side though...can always trim them down and just make it flat there. For $8 I don't mind tailoring them to my needs. They are made in the USA as well. Those Wrench Boss organizers do look very nice if I had multiples of the same wrench.

I have three of these and they work great. Two are set up exactly like blown49's in my wrench drawer. I think this is better than the wrench boss since the wrenches are stood on edge and take up less floor space in the drawer.

I was pretty excited about the wrench boss until I realized that I would have to cut off the 21mm and larger slots to make it fit in my box.

Site says you can customize the sizes so you shouldn't have to.

Not bad, but here are my gripes with it:

1-I prefer to lay the wrench on it's narrow side for space saving reasons.
2-I'd prefer not to stack my wrenches, so I didn't have to pick one up to grab the one beneath it.
3-It doesn't appear to hold the wrench in very snugly. With the sort-a-tool, there are little nubs that hold the wrenches in place for when you're opening and closing the droors.

Yes, I know I'm a picky SOB.
