New Equipment Tote

December 23, 2019

When you have a full set of games equipment you need a means of containing and moving it around. And when you want to make sure it’s water safe and not stuffed in too tight and getting smashed and broken.

Having as many items in a secure sealed tote is important too. One time I was taking equipment to a practice in the back of my truck and somehow one stepping stone popped out in transit. No idea how but there were six when I left and only five when I arrived.

My previous tote was a plastic foot locker, with wheels on one end. Wheels are key. And although it was sold as water tight, even from the start it would take on water. It also was not large enough to fit the stack of stepping stones (a new set of 6), the association containers, four flag holder, bucket, toolbox, and such.

I have been eyeballing the big Stanley 50gal tool chest and recently stumbled on the Home Depo Husky brand version for a much more affordable $50 price tag. It has large wheels on one end and a large pull out handle on the other. It also has a lock which would have been nice in the past when we left equipment at our practice venue, just for piece of mind. It also has a removable toolbox tray inside that is excellent for holding a lot of the smaller items.

I loaded the new tote up with all the equipment and it fit all of the small items including the four flag holder, association, stepping stones, and a bucket. And there is room to spare.

I’m thrilled with this tote and ready to roll it our next practice!
