How not to lose your nuts

2012-11-27 17:49

DON'T LOSE YOUR NUTS: With a simple magnet tray, car repairs never have to devolve into a hunt for missing nuts and bolts.

We’ve all been there - you're tinkering away at your car or motorcycle and the tin can you're using for the nuts and bolts goes flying courtesy of a errant dog or curious child. Now you're left searching the ground for scattered items.

The guys at Automotive Technology Specialists have a better solution - magnetic storage trays and containers.

SPACE SHORT?

An anti-scuff magnetic base serves the dual purpose of keeping the heavy-duty stainless-steel tray firmly attached to any metal surface and hold items even when tipped upside down. Depending on the design, buyers can opt for a separate catch tray to hold non-conductive items, even when the tray is attached vertically to the fender or door of a car.
 
If space is at a premium, there are collapsible units that fold flat for easy storage in your tool box drawer.

Available in circular and oval shapes, these rubber versions are ideal for motorsport technicians.
 
Price: From R50
