The combat-ready 0450 Mobile Tool Chest built by Peli Products specifically for the USA military as the GMTK (General Mechanics Tool Kit) is now being introduced for civilian use.
The 0450’s structural grade, open-cell core, polymer construction will protect tools from the harshest conditions on Earth. With the ability to hold up to 45 kg, the 0450 case has been tested to meet and exceed 96 demanding military standards that include high impact, extreme temperatures and submersion.
The tool case combines the flexibility of 7 removable tool drawers (6 shallow and 1 deep) designed for a multitude of configurations with the mobility and benefits of a Peli Protector Case™. Additionally, the top compartment features a removable utility tray and a lid that opens 180 degrees to create a mobile workspace, capable of holding up to 23 kg of weight.
For case security, two hybrid, double throw latches with butterfly compression technology (capable of withstanding 149 kg of pulling pressure each) and two extra standard latches, work with a polymer o-ring in both lids to secure the case and maintain its watertight seal. Tool theft prevention comes in the form of extra-large, tamper-resistant, stainless steel padlock protectors. The case also has two automatic pressure equalization valves (one in each compartment) that prevent vacuum lock and make the case easier to open at extreme altitudes.
The 0450 is engineered with a host of innovations designed specifically for ease of transportation. Advanced features include a widened wheel base to stabilise the case on soft and hard surfaces (so it won’t lean to the side during transport with a full load of tools). Additionally, it features a heavy-duty, extended pull-handle and extra thick polyurethane, stainless-steel, ball-bearing wheels for all terrain mobility. The 0450 features an extra-deep handle on each end of the case so it can be lifted from two positions when it’s open or closed. Foot-pads at the bottom of the case and depressions in the lid create a “Block In Pocket” design to provide for easy stacking and load management.
The case is available in two configurations:
