Are Festool T-Loc Systainers being put on closeout by any online dealers?   [scratch chin]

@Samo, Festool is discontinuing most of the TLOC lineup in favor of the Sys3. I believe left over inventory of TLOCs are in short supply. We have a couple of the abrasives Systainers on sale. If don't need them for abrasives you can always toss the insert and use them as empties or put foam in them.

Thanks Shane!

Yes, I've noticed some Festool T-Loc on other vendors sites but not on sale.

BTW Sys3 are nice but I need to modify the top lid to be able to raise the handle one handed.  [mad]

A strong second on that too handle remark. I actually really like the new sys 3 overall and have quite a few already but I dislike the way the top handle snaps down. It is to a point that whenever I have a Systainer stack I am going to be moving around on a job I make sure to put a t-loc on top so that I can grab it and move easier.

I think most of the T-Loc closeouts were around this time last year, when the Sys3 was introduced.

Is there any harm that would come from filing down the nubs that hold down the handle?  My understanding of the Sys3 is that the handled fold forward so that they auto-collapse when racking a Systainer, so I'm sure the latches are to help them from a) bouncing around while driving and making all sorts of noise (the TLocs held the handle in place when latched together) and b) prevent them from flipping up and getting caught when removing a Sys3 from a rack.

If neither of those concerns exist, I don't see the harm in filing down those nubs, myself.  I'm considering doing that on the SysM-187 that I use for my hand block/hose combo, just haven't gotten around to it yet.

Not sure. My thought was to file or sand a radius in the handle to clear the nubs. Seemed like an easier solution. Plus, a replacement handle costs less than a replacement lid.

Now that the flip forward another cause for concern is them flipping open when you open a lid. Generally just an annoyance rather than an issue, but still something to consider.

I didn't think about it that way; I agree with that thought process, for sure.

I used a wood chisel to pare the nubs down.  But filing a radius in the handle, as suggested above, leaves it reversible by just getting a new handle. Probably a better way to go.
