Title: Versastack/Tstak
Post by: DynaGlide on December 09, 2019, 08:56 AM
I'm giving these Craftsman Versastak (rebranded DeWalt Tstaks) a try to get my hardware under control:

They're cheaper than the DeWalt but otherwise identical until you move to the tool boxes which are IP54 rated under the Craftsman name. Stanley Black and Decker owns both companies so all of the Tstak and Versastack stuff is interchangeable.

I'm tired of having all my hardware spread all over the house between the basement and garage, in random boxes and bins. I thought about going with L-boxx sortimo stuff or staying with Tanos/Festool but the cost would be staggering to put everything into either of those. I just have the 2-drawer shallow units for now and will consider getting some of the deep 1 drawer from the DeWalt line to put drills, jigsaws, etc in.

If anyone else is using this system I'd love to see some pics. I've already started scouring Instagram for ideas.

I think those Versastacks are great, and reasonably priced as well.

I have a few of the yellow Tstaks too, but I've found the latches operate a little more smoothly on the Versastacks, dunno if that's intentional or just might be some random batch differences at the factory.  Looking closely at the interior ribbing there are a few minor differences between them as well.

Only thing I don't like about the red ones is they don't offer the large single drawer unit or the base with wheels, have to buy the yellow ones for those.

I'm hoping they bring both of those over. The product line is still new and it doesn't make much sense not to.

I have 2 of the 2 drawer units I picked up when they were on sale at Lowes.  They're great for my odds and ends fasteners.
