Where are your tool box keys? Have you left them at home by accident? Do you worry about your tools at the new shop? Craftsman has made a major stride in tool storage security — Bluetooth! The new Craftsman Pro Series Connected Tool Storage units not only give you peace of mind, they provide the great quality boxes mechanics have come to expect from the brand.
The new boxes include an exclusive Bluetooth Connected Smart Lock technology. They come in three combinations: a 26-in. W x 21-in. D x 24.5-in. H (chest), 26-in. W x 21-in. D x 42.5-in. H (rolling cabinet); a 41-in. W x 21-in. D x 24.5-in. H (chest) 41-in. W x 21-in. D x 42.5-in. H (rolling cabinet); and a 52-in. W x 21-in. D x 24.5-in. H (chest) 52-in. W x 21-in. D x 42.5-in. H (rolling cabinet).
By simply downloading the Craftsman iOS or Android app, the user can automatically unlock and lock the unit based on their smartphone proximity — which means no more worrying about lost and forgotten keys. The user can also give remote access to friends, family and coworkers. Further, users are able to monitor and check reports to see if the unit has suffered tampering.
They are strong too. Matt Sallee, from Waterloo Industries, the manufacturer who has made Craftsman boxes for over 70 years, said “You have a ton of room for storage. Load ratings on these units are much higher than anything we have done in the past. These are 200 pound drawers on a unit that is a fraction of the price of a tool truck unit.”
