Product Description

Amazon.com

Bucket Boss's Crate Boss is loaded with pockets--13 interior and 28 exterior. Filled systematically, this tool organizer gives you storage and immediate see-it-grab-it access to a remarkable number of tools: hammers, wrenches, drivers, bits, staple gun, pry bar, etc. There's even a handy snap-in pocket for a cordless drill. Because the Crate Boss fits snugly over a standard milk crate (not included), it won't tip over in the back of your truck the way bucket organizers can. It also takes up less space. The tradeoff, however, is that you really can't carry two of these at once (without spilling) the way you can with bucket organizers. The Crate Boss doesn't seem quite as spacious as the Bucket Boss, but by the same token, its compactness means you're less likely to get sloppy and misplace a tool at the bottom of it. Whichever you decide to buy--Crate Boss or Bucket Boss--you'll have an organizer far more convenient than the toolbox of yesteryear. --Jon Groebner

From the Manufacturer

13 interior pockets and 28 exterior pockets to hold everything from a little marking pencil to a big cordless drill in the built-in drill holster. The extremely stable modular shape of the milk crate makes it an excellent jobsite organizer for the work truck or van. With sturdy, dairy grade crate.

I have two of these as well as several bucket boss's. I like both for different reasons. They both hold lots of tools of every size and shape. I did away with all my tool boxes since these came out. ( except for my antique Gerstner ) Crates waste less space because of their square design. They don't tip over like a bucket . You can stack them but then they might tip. Because of their lower profile they are easier to find tools in. You have to carry these with both hands if you dont want to spill them out. You can fit longer tools in a bucket. You can carry two buckets at a time one in each hand. Both hold enough tools to be too heavy. Over all I think I like the crates a tad better.

I've had real difficulty finding a crate to fit this product. They claim to fit a "standard" 13" crate, but most crates are now a bit larger, I believe, in order to hold file folders. Be sure and order the Bucket Boss with the crate to avoid frustration.

The Crate Boss is made of high quality materials like all the products from Bucket Boss/ Fiskars. Intelligent design features for utility and convienence.
The Crate Boss has 27 outside pockets and 13 interior pockets. It has the convenient cordless drill holder that the Bucket Boss has. Generally the pockets are BIGGER - a pocket for a 30' tape measure, flashlight. There are two large flapped and velcroed pockets you can use as nail pouch type compartments.
Some important points:
The Crate Boss fits a 13 X 13 "DAIRY QUALITY" Crate only. The Crate Boss DOES NOT FIT the flimsy plastic office filing system "milk cartons". You may have to do some searching for a correct "manly" milk crate.
The Crate Boss has a "Full Bottom" to keep things from falling out through the crate. This a REALLY nice feature!
There are some positive and negative points when comparing the CRATE Boss with the 56 pocket BUCKET Boss product. Both products are very well made with intelligent design features. Both use the same hard use materials. And should last an exceptionally long time.
The Crate Boss has a lower center of gravity than a comparably filled Bucket Boss. It has less tendency to tip over when in the back of your pickup. It does tend to slide around though.
It also isn't easily carried with only one hand like the Bucket Boss can be.
There is enough room in the Crate to carry other power tools like a circular saw that you can't get into a Bucket Boss bucket.
I love Bucket Boss products and the CrateBoss is another useful product.

There is no limit to how many tools you can cram into this great organizer. I bought my crate boss some time ago, but it sat on a shelf until I spotted an old milk crate in an abandoned warehouse. Since then I have been amazed at how many ways you can store tools, bottles, tape measures, flash lights and any number of other items. If you don't feel like putting everything back in its place, you can just chunk it into the open area in the middle of the crate. Later, you can sort everything out and put it in its place. That suits my style perfectly.

This is a great product. When fully loaded it will not tip over in your truck. More room than a 5 gallon bucket system. Easier to carry than a bucket too. Tons of pockets ,holds way too many tools.
