The steel tool box: a necessity for the ultimate man cave

Man caves, or rooms dedicated to a man's interests and hobbies, have quickly become popular getaway spots for both married and bachelor men. They feature advanced home theatre systems for action movies and gaming, special bar areas, billiards, weight sets and of course, a large amount of tools. While most man caves don't offer all of these amenities, many do contain a special area for working on things like cars and home improvement projects. Luckily, tool box manufacturers have begun to take your needs into account and offer many special add-ons to stainless steel tool boxes, from helpful assists to fancy tricks.

A large tool chest allows you to sort and organize your tools in the same location you will be using them. So if your man cave is in the garage, shed or basement, you can keep all of your tools there in one neat container. A stainless steel tool chest is super-durable. No matter how many times that hammer flies out of your hand, you can rest assured that the tool chest will handle the force with more grace than most other metals on the market. Also, stainless steel doesn't rust, so you won't have to worry about it when your basement floods or a hot summer leaves your garage sticky and humid. Of course, these durable features don't come without a price; your stainless steel tool cabinet will be pretty heavy, so it is a good idea to get one with wheels if you think you might ever need to move it. Remember, if it is heavy before you put tools in it, the tool box will be nearly impossible to move once it is loaded down with tools.

Special bonus features

You will likely buy a stainless steel tool box that is a set of drawers on wheels, but did you know that new high-end models offer additional features?  If you plan to use your tool chest long term, then you will be happy to know that some models now come with power hookups right on the drawers so you don't have to walk all the way to the outlet in order to hook up your power tools; you can just pull out your drill and plug it right in. Modern tool chests also come with hydraulic lifts for your top lid. Not only does this make the lid easier to open, but also the lifts helps keep the lid up when you want to quickly remove and replace tools. For the man who wants a more man-cave themed tool box, some high end models also contain speakers, which means you can listen to the game anywhere your tool chest goes. Missing your favorite beer?  No worries, you can even buy a tool chest with a mini fridge inside!

Tool boxes have come a long way since the old wooden caddy. With a variety of options available, you can customize your tool box to fit the needs of your man cave. Whether you are looking for a great mobile tool chest or a surround sound home theater system, Sears can help you find all the gear you need to outfit the manliest of man caves.
