Snap-On debuts secure toolbox

Snap-On has introduced its Level 5 KTC Keyless Tool Control series, offering tool storage that secures tools by using an electronic keypad or scanning an ID badge to gain entry into a tool box.

The KTC system is ideal for boxes that are often on-the-go, such as those used by aircraft mechanics, according to Snap-On officials, who note it is easy for technicians in this environment to forget or lose track of their toolbox keys.

With KTC the box is accessed anytime, anywhere, achieving the same level of security as a lock and key system while eliminating the inconvenience that keys often produce.

The KTC entry panel is incorporated into the top of the tool box. Since it’s designed to work best for boxes on the move, the KTC system can be powered by six D-cell batteries (which can last up to six months), or can be plugged into an AC outlet.

Features of the KTC system include:

  • Credentials can be created to allow access for multiple users
  • LED lights indicate if box is open or closed
  • Access unit comes pre-assembled to top of tool box and ready to use
  • Tool box can be connected to laptop for additional monitoring
