SK Tools Racing Storage and Toolbox Reviews

SK Tools All Aluminum Tool Box Preview


Is it time to upgrade your tool box? An SK Tools all aluminum tool box is available in four different models to suit your exact needs and exceed your expectations. With more than a 100 year history forged in America making professional tools, count on SK to know how to make a tool box.

SK Professional Tools was founded in the early 1900s as the Sherman-Klove Company by Mason H. Sherman and Roger Klove. The company specialized in screw-machine products and spent the early years operating as a contract company that manufactured quality tools and parts for other companies. They quickly earned a reputation for quality and innovation that’s endured for over 100 years.

At the onset of the First World War, Sherman-Klove pivoted to apply its manufacturing expertise to producing munitions and mortar shell casings for the American war effort. The company did so until the war’s conclusion in 1919 when they were able to return to what they really loved and what still drives them today – manufacturing quality tools for the American tradesman.

SK Tools All Aluminum Tool Box Features

The SK Tools all aluminum tool box is made from military spec aluminum. Frame construction of 6061 aluminum alloy provides superior structural strength with 30% less weight. Aircraft aluminum body panels made from 5052 aluminum ensures durability and corrosion resistance while still giving unequalled strength. Finally, a polyester powder coat finish, designed to last a lifetime, features one of the thickest and most durable finishes on the market.

Don’t think that the aluminum construction means anything was sacrificed for storage. An innovative design allows for full-size drawer depth to maximize storage capacity. Drawers operate ultra-smooth with the use of heavy duty ball bearing slides. The ball bearing slides are rated at 250-500 pounds per pair. The higher rating is for full width and extra deep drawers. Oversized casters provide a capacity of 2,000 pounds per caster. This equates to more than 8,000 lbs. (4 tons) of total box load rating.

Additional features differentiate the SK Tools all aluminum tool box from all the others. The Easy-Open MotionLatch allows the user to open the drawer with just one finger, while still securely locking when closed. Tool box models that include lids all include gas-assisted shocks for smooth opening and a controlled-close. Every box has a sleek and streamlined appearance due to the extruded radius corners. This helps prevent scratches, scraped knuckles, and snagged clothing. In addition, the built-in removable D-Ring tie downs provide for secure transport and are included on all SK Tools all aluminum tool boxes.

Parting Words

SK Professional Tools is no newcomer to the tool industry. The namesake has always been synonymous with quality and craftsmanship. If these toolboxes perform anything like the specs provided or the round-head ratchet that SK originally created 70 years ago, then I want one…or two. We look forward to doing a full review on at least one of these soon here at Shop Tool Reviews.
