A Heavy-Duty Tool Roll for Heavy-Duty Jobs
TThe humble tool roll has long been a staple for men with projects to tackle and problems to fix. They make a simple and effective means of keeping your gear readily accessible and organized for when they are needed most. Here at Coleman’s, we have a product that can help you in this department as well – our US GI Versatile Carry Wrap.
What are some of the ways that it can be used? Let’s take a look…
A Tool Roll - The Perfect Toolbox Organizer
Whether you’ve been carting about a Husky rolling toolbox or get your tools from Point A to Point B in a more traditional toolbox, you understand how obnoxious it can be to not have your gear organized. Sure, you have it all with you, but having to dump every tool you have out on the floor before you can find the specific nail punch that you need is both unprofessional and time consuming.
This is where an organization system comes into play, and our US GI Versatile Carry Wrap can fit the bill perfectly.
Let’s say you do a lot of fine woodworking for the older houses in your community. As such, you have a set of incredibly sharp chisels that you always keep with you, a set of dividers, calibers, and the like. If you just dump everything into a tool bag, not only are things liable to get damaged, but you could potentially cut yourself reaching in for a chisel.
Using a tool roll can help in these types of situations.
By wrapping the tools you need in our US GI Versatile Carry Wrap and then stuffing it in your rolling toolbox, you’re able to easily carry everything you need with you, but in an easily accessible and organized format.
No more need to play hide-and-seek!
What if you have multiple types of tools that you need to keep organized and separate?
A tool roll can still help here. By sticking a piece of colored electrician tape onto the back of each tool roll, you can easily designate one as your wrench roll up pouch, the other as your chisel roll, and a third as your HVAC tool bag.
You won’t have to search around for the right kit anymore, and everything will be right there for when you need it.
A Simple Tool Bucket Organizer
I personally like using a tool bucket when working because handyman work around the house typically involves removing old, nasty parts from things. Having a bucket nearby not only lets me keep my tools handy but also gives me something to throw bent nails, wrappers, and scraps of drywall into.
What’s obnoxious, however, is having all that trash mixed up with your tools. This is where a tool roll can help. With your gear wrapped up in a US GI Versatile Carry Wrap and then stuffed down into a 5-gallon bucket, you can easily take your tools with you wherever you need to go, use that bucket as a trash can once you’re there, and still keep your tools separated from the debris for easy cleanup afterwards.
Get out of the grime with a ground mat.
Let’s say you work in plumbing or as an electrician, and you’re looking for a way to minimize the amount of laying around in the dirt that you have to do on a daily basis. You know you’re going to have to get onto the floor of that apartment to get the job done, but you also know that this floor is coated with something yellow and sticky that smells akin to rotten guacamole.
Our US GI Versatile Carry Wrap could accomplish two jobs here. First, by using it as an electrician tool bag of sorts, you could get the gear you need to the work site. Then, fully unfolded, you would have a ground mat to lay on to keep you out of the filth.
The end result is that your clothes last longer, you get the job done, and you don’t have to lay in dehydrated pee to do it.
The Car Breakdown Tool Roll Bag
It’s not a question of if your car will break down but when.
This being the case, keeping a supply of tools in your car and at the ready helps you to make the best of a bad situation when it comes. Flat tire on the way to your friend’s wedding? Having the gear you need organized in a tool roll and out of the way in your trunk is a great way to stay prepared.
An added benefit here is our US GI Versatile Carry Wrap’s ability to serve as a ground mat in these types of situations as well. When do you get a flat tire? When you’re cold, wearing nice clothes, and in a hurry. You don’t want to show up to that job interview or wedding rehearsal covered in mud, and this is where a ground mat could help.
In these types of situations, you would not only have the gear you need organized and at the ready, but you would be able to accomplish the task at hand while minimizing your contact with the ground.
On-the-Road Shoe Organization
The family vacation is finally here, and you’ve managed to get your growing family into the van. But the shoes. They’re everywhere. It seems that you’re raising a family of centipedes because the number of pairs of shoes you see stuffed into the trunk defies all explanation. There are flip-flops, running shoes, dress shoes, slippers – it’s ridiculous.
If this is where you’re at, our US GI Versatile Carry Wrap can function as an ad hoc means of giving your luggage some semblance of order. All of your daughters’ shoes can be wrapped into the roll and tucked out of the way in the trunk until you get to the beach house, making for an organized car trunk and a less cluttered trip.
A Garden Tool Roll
You need to head out to weed around the tomatoes, till up ground for the winter squash, and prune the beans, but you need some way to get all of your tools out there. You also would prefer not to have to kneel in the dirt to get all of this done, as it just rained last night.
Our US GI Versatile Carry Wrap can be used here too. Throw everything you need into it as a tool roll, and then when you get to the garden, you not only have your gear with you but a ground mat to work from. You’ll save time and energy by making less tool-fetching trips from the house to the garden and you won’t be as filthy of a mess when you get finished.
It’s a win-win.
Firewood Gathering at the Camp Site
Heading out into the woods with the kids and going to be doing a bit of cooking around the campfire? If this is the case, you’re going to want to make sure that you have a good stock of firewood nearby. One of the most efficient ways to gather this is with a carry wrap.
With this in hand, you won’t have to make nearly as many trips to collect the fuel you need to make your legendary peanut butter s’mores. This in turn leads to less time doing chores and more time spent with family. Who can complain about that?
That’s a Wrap
