1st Day of Construction Gifts: Craftsman mechanics tool set combines full range of sockets, drivers in expandable Versastack system

Craftsman Open

Mechanics tool sets have long been popular under the Christmas tree for any family that has a budding gearhead in its midst (or an adult who needs an extra set of tools to throw in the back of his pickup truck).

Now Craftsman has packaged a 216-piece, three-drawer mechanics tool set (normally $149, but on sale for $99) into its modular Versastack system to help keep those mechanics organized and mobile. The tools offered include ratchets, wrenches, sockets and accessories in ¼- inch, 3/8-inch and ½-drive sizes with room for other accessories.

The Versastack system offers a wide range of storage boxes that can be stacked, locked together and wheeled around the shop or jobsite easily. Each unit is rated IP54 for durability and secured with heavy-duty metal latches.

Other recent additions (and potential Christmas gifts) for the Versastack system include a 30-quart cooler ($129) and a 17-inch soft side tool and accessories bag ($45). You can find all these and the rest of the Versastack modules at Lowe’s stores.

The interlocking Versastack modules allow you to easily roll a shop full of tools to the work.The interlocking Versastack modules allow you to easily roll a shop full of tools to the work.
