Drawer Liner

Making the most of your tool chest by laying in these affordable and practical liners. Without a liner, the motion of opening and closing drawers will send whatever part you need into the back of the drawer, where you’ll fumble awkwardly for it.

Installation is as simple as measuring and cutting, just like installing a kitchen cabinet drawer liner. This protects the finish of your drawer and your tools.

Tool Roll-Up

This tool roll-up is perfect for short, thin tools. It can store 14 tools in a small space without sacrificing order or ease of use.

Because the roll-up constricts air flow when drawn tight, you may consider dedicating a single pocket to a silicone desiccant. Grab it from factory packaging of a new tool, or make it yourself with kitty litter.
