Complete Tool Kit Set

Our competitive advantage is we can manufacture the kit to meet your specific needs. For example, a US Navy customer had a requirement to deploy with a specific set of tools, however the size and style of tools were too large for a regular toolbox and the deployment environment necessitated a tow-able toolbox. We designed a cage with tow bar that was built around a premium Matco toolbox. In other instances, customers had specialty tools they needed designed and manufactured for their specific requirements, we were able to manufacture those tools and included them with the regular tools, foam inserts and a custom made toolbox.

We have been building tool control kits 100% complete for over fifteen years, we understand that tool control foam is just a small part of the overall complete tool kit set. Our process for the building of a complete tool control kit starts with the bill of materials. We learn about your requirement/application to ensure we provide the right tools and container to meet your specific application requirements. For example, you may have a team of technicians working from a single box, we would review your bill of materials and make suggestions about tools you may want duplicates of in the kit. This ensures no technicians are waiting for tools to be available.

Customizing the bill of materials content is part of the process but so is ensuring we work within your budget, with 100’s of suppliers we can meet your budget requirements and select tools that make sense for your application at the same time.

This attention to detail continues to choosing the right size container to fit your tools while keeping the overall design requirements of any successful tool control foam job in mind. These requirements relate to the distance required between tools to ensure the tool control foam’s wall integrity among other requirements such as the distance between the tools and the edge of the foam tray.

Ensuring quality of fit of the tools within the pockets is a priority and is shown by our multi stage QC process prior to shipping your custom tool kit. The CTK or composite tool kit is only effective if all of the tools match your requirement exactly, this is accomplished through a multi stage QC process as well. This QC process is built into our ISO9001 quality system. The QC checks start before production by confirming the bill of materials matches the original request, it continues through engineering to make sure all tools required were engineered as well all engineered shapes match the cut outs (fit testing). Post production QC involves ensuring each tool is marked according to the customers requirements, each tool that was ordered is present, and the layouts match the customer approved layouts.


The kits are then photographed, labeled, and shipped according to the customers instructions.

Consultation and quotes are provided at no cost, please contact us today via email or phone to start the process.

Tool Control Foam with cut outs

Utilizing state of the art technology we can create shadow boards and foam inserts with tool foam cutouts faster than anyone in the business. Our foam cut outs are manufactured on a waterjet, the waterjet allows precision to .001 and ensures the finished product does not have any micro fod. Micro Fod (foreign object damage or debris) occurs when people use a CNC router. It is the small “burrs” on the inside of each of the cut outs.

We do all of our own work in house, we do not outsource. Many of our competitors outsource, this leads to long lead times, gaps in quality, and long quote lead times. We have eliminated all of these issues to streamline and simplify the process for you.

Foam Cutouts

Our most common request with the tool control foam with cut outs is “Can we do the cut outs without actually having the tools?” The answer is yes! There are several ways to get us the shapes of your tools.

1. Tracing each tool on a piece of paper we send you. This is the most accurate, you don’t need to be perfect, our engineers normalize the tracings and create your layout, we can send you the plotted drawings in full size for you to do a fit check ensuring the tool foam you receive fits perfect!

2. You can take a photograph of each tool from directly above with a scale in the photo. We have a server you can upload an entire folder with images all at once.

3. You can provide geometric shapes for the tools. This is a good option if you are doing the foam for a drawer or box that is full of tools like measurement tools or cutting tools.

We make doing business with us easy! Our quotes are based on the size of the drawer, shadow board, or case. There are no piece counts required, flat rates make quotes for foam cut outs quick!

These instructions make the process simple, in just a few quick steps you will have the tool control kit you need completed. The first step is cutting the foam to the size of your drawer, to do this we recommend using a straight edge or carpenter square and a utility or hot knife. Once you have the drawer size cut. We recommend tracing the tools in the locations within the drawer.
