Six good reasons for custom tool tray inlays

Easily create custom tool tray inlays by yourself? You can now do this with the online configurator mySortimo inlay. In this article I will give you six good reasons for using Sortimo’s high-quality rigid foam inserts and how they can help you to be even more productive in your day-to-day work.

Whether you’re a professional or a hobbyist, customer service employee or measurement engineer – to carry out your professional activities and in your home workshop you need expensive tools and equipment, which should not simply end up unsorted and possibly even damaged in the drawer or tool box after use.

There is hardly anything more annoying when at work than faulty or missing tools. In front of the customer, it can very quickly appear unprofessional if you can’t find the right tool straight away, or if it doesn’t work properly due to careless storage. So that it doesn’t come to that, we have developed mySortimo inlay. These are foam inserts to store and transport your tools and equipment in an orderly, safe and well-structured manner.

Of course, foam inserts for tools and sensitive equipment are nothing new. However, with mySortimo inlay you can design your own custom tool tray inlay online for your BOXXes, your cases or the drawers of your van racking system. This means that you can create custom inlays with every conceivable division to meet your exact requirements and you don’t have to resort to pre-configured mass-produced inlays.

To do this, you can take photos of your own tools and equipment that you want to place in the inlay and upload these photos into the configurator. Your tools are saved in your personal account in digitised format and can be retrieved again and again. You can also select tools already entered in the tool database.

mySortimo inlay is aimed at professionals and hobbyists who know exactly what they want and leave nothing to chance! Professionals who prefer order, structure and tidy systems in their everyday work and who want to transport and store their valuable tools and sensitive equipment safely. For the best possible organisation, take your time to think about which tools and equipment you’re going to transport or store in which BOXX or drawer, which tools and equipment you most frequently take with you to work sites and which arrangement would be best thematically. Surely you have gathered sufficient experience in your day-to-day work to decide which tool sets are best for which jobs.

Using individual tool tray inlays makes you significantly more productive and efficient.
There are six good reasons for this:

1. A perfect overview

Whether in the drawer of your van racking system or in your toolbox – so you know exactly where which tools are located. You have a perfect overview and it only takes one specific action to find the right tool.

2. Less time searching

Everything has its own place, which reduces time spent searching for things. Not only does this make you much more productive and efficient, it also leaves a professional impression with the customer.

3. Gentle handling and less forgetting

The mere fact that every piece of work equipment has its own pre-moulded place ensures that it is handled with much more care. Leaving tools lying around or carelessly throwing them into the box are things of the past. As a result, tools and equipment can be used much longer because they are better maintained.

Furthermore, it’s not as easy to leave them behind. The two-colour foam insert consisting of a blue base body and black top layer mean missing tools immediately catch your eye when you’re leaving the work site, which is particularly important for activities where nothing must be left behind, such as in the food industry or aircraft construction.

Of course, this is also practical in other trades and industries, for example before starting work, or when the crew change vehicles. This allows service engineers or fitters to see at a glance whether all tools in the van racking system are complete or whether a part is missing before they set off.

But let’s not forget the financial aspect here, because damage to or even the loss of expensive tools is not only annoying, it unnecessarily costs you money to replace them. With mySortimo inlay you prolong the life of your expensive tools and protect them from damage.

4. Faster set-up times

Once you’ve thought about which tool sets you need for which type of job and then created and even labelled the mySortimo inlays, you can grab the right inlay as needed. This means that your van racking system can be quickly converted for other uses. Replacing one inlay with certain tools with another is much faster than putting in and taking out each individual tool. Fairly logical, right?

What’s more, the clarity and structure that is automatically provided by the tool tray inlays also help every trainee and new employee find their way around quickly. This saves you a lot of stress in return.

5. Avoid doubling up

Just as the inlays ensure that you don’t forget any equipment, they also ensure that you don’t double up on anything. Why? Because the rigid foam inserts are organisational aids for everyday work: picture a drawer full of unsorted tools. How much time are you willing to spend to find out whether you really have the right screwdriver with you?

How often do you just throw another one in the drawer to make sure that you have the right tools for the job? Can you imagine how often this happens and how quickly such a vehicle becomes packed with equipment and its cargo space full of unnecessary weight? And how many parts are purchased two or three times, even though there’s one already lying unused in a drawer?

It is obvious that a structured tool tray inlay can help here and save money at the same time.

6. Ergonomics

The structure in the vehicle and product features such as the integrated recessed grips also ensure that tools can be accessed quickly, easily and ergonomically.

Last but not least: three special advantages of mySortimo

Advantage 1:

The mySortimo inlays are available to order from just 1 inlay in your custom configuration and at a fixed price – regardless how many tools or devices you want to include. You only pay the one-off price for the inlay.

Advantage 2:

Tool inlays you create are stored for you in your personal account on, so you can easily reorder or customise them at any time. This is particularly practical if you purchase a new BOXX or another vehicle, as you can re-order the required tool tray inlays with just one click.

Advantage 3:

Of course you also have the option of fitting tool tray inlays into the drawers and SR drawers of the SR5 or Globelyst van racking system as well as the WorkMos you’re already using. To do this, simply select the option “SR Drawer”, “GL4 Drawers”, “SR5 Drawers” or “WorkMo” in the configurator in the first step and off you go.

Curious? Why not give it a go yourself and configure your own custom tool tray inlay!
