Fortunately, The Case Store offers a variety of rugged, water-resistant mobile tool cases that exceed the demands of mobile technicians.

All of our tool case models are constructed with tough composite materials designed for superior impact resistance and durability. These tool cases also feature watertight seals and corrosion-resistant hardware for added protection against the elements.

No one wants their tools ruined by moisture or corrosion! Add corrosion resistance to your tool case with the Pelican™ 1500CI Corrosion Intercept Kit or the Peli™ Desiccant.


For added convenience, many mobile tool cases also offer adjustable compartments and dividers which allow you to organize your tools in your own efficient manner - perfect for those on the move. In addition to the drawers, trays, and dividers, you can also use kaizen™ foam to organize your tools. For a visual of how to customize kaizen to fit your needs, check out this video from The Case Store's YouTube channel! With organized storage, you'll be able to quickly grab what you need when time is of the essence.

Locks and Tool Cases

Mobile tool cases are able to be locked with padlocks, such as the ones we sell here at The Case Store. A couple good options would be the Pelican™ TSA Lock, Master Lock® 4680DBLK TSA Lock, and the all new TSA Comination Cable Padlock from SKB. These locks are perfect to keep your tools extra secure.
