Socket organizer

So, I stumbled across a company the other week called Westling Machine while looking for a way to organize my sockets. The Hansons trays are too tall and the metal strips are a PITA IMO. Westling has socket trays for 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" sockets, and really aren't that expensive for anodized machined aluminum plates. I ordered up the Metric and SAE sized 1/4" trays with size engravings on them (you can order them blank to put other things like Torx bits on them) just to try them out. I was concerned about the tiny little peg not being able to secure the deep well sockets when moved around.

I got the two trays within 4 days and was instantly impressed. After I mounted all my sockets, I tried shaking the little buggers off to no avail. I ordered the plates for 3/8" sockets Thursday night and got them this evening. More than pleased with them.



I need more space. And more sockets... (my ratchets are hiding under the torque wrenches and none of my impacts are in my box)


Wanted to show just how well they hold the sockets.


Just wanted to share a cool product that is also made in America.

Magnetic, or they just hold really well?

I'd like something to replace the plastic trays in my box in my truck.

Just hold well. They'd fall out if tipped much more than that picture.

Just found this on YouTube. (This is NOT me. I don't have a littthp).

I have been using the plastic hanson style for quite a few years and love them. I will say those look very nice though, and will obviously last forever. The price really isn't too bad for what it is. thanks for sharing.

Those look really nice.. but pricey. I've been using the socket trays from Harbor freight and am happy with them

i have this style and love them!! the are held by magnets, and the strip on the back will hold the whole set to things. say you are under the truck you could stick it to the side of the frame and they would stay. I will stick it to the top of the frames of dirt bikes.(under the seat and above the air box. they wont fall off or roll away, when switching out different sizes.
