Not so good
31 Oct 2012
By
, Bath
"I'm on my third box, as I've found the box is not robust enough for even normal working. The hinges keep snapping off, but thanks to Screwfix they've kindly replaced two for me. The box is large, so you can get lots of tools in it, but watch the safety load. I'd rather pay more and get a more reliable product. Sorry"

Toolbox built down to a price

"On the face of it a good looking product but the so called metal catches are mounted on weak plastic hinges that failed after only 2 days. Don't buy this if you plan to take it onto site!"

Forge Steel 26" Toolbox
19 May 2011
By
, Belfast
"Looked great so I bought one. Features are good but they are the worst latches in the world. Both eventually broke, replacement from Screwfix (great job) but the replacement has lasted even less time. Catches broke again. If you want reliability, dont buy this"

"Metal latches are very weak and come off if accidently knocked. I would not recommend this as a 'heavy duty' toolbox, but more suitable for your weekend DIYer"

Poor quality box
29 Sep 2013
By
, Cheltenham
"Like many others reviewing this box I had the same problem with the catches. Yes they are made of metal but they are mounted on poor quality and badly designed plastic hinges.
After a week the first catch hinge broke and after another couple of weeks the second broke.
This means I cant use the lifting handle.
Dumped it and bought a Stanley version for £17 which gets much better reviews.
Do not buy unless you are an occasional DIY'er.

Forge steel 26 inch toolbox
9 Jul 2012
By
, Greenock
"Lasted 4 days. On second day handle on internal tray snapped.
On fourth day clip on toolbox snapped off so could not close box. Box totally useless as could not carry by handle.
My kids bought me box for Fathers Day so went by appearance instead of quality. Took back and exchanged for stanley box.

"bought this toolbox christmas 2011, its lasted about 2 month before the handle on the tray started to snap, so it was out with the gaffa tape. about a month after that the fasteners at the front broke whilst i was carrying it, throwing my tools all over the floor. A closer inspection of the fasteners relieved that the fasteners rely solely on a very small bit of plastic, that is totally insufficient for a tool box of this size, in fact any size. check out the photo i have uploaded.
This box may look very nice at first glance but i can assure you it is very poorly designed, and no good for carry tools in.

"Metal locks are held on by brittle plastic, this snapped shortly after purchase. The removable tray does not fit correctly & and keeps falling into the bottom of the box, a waste of £28.00, the box is now in the bin."
