Almost every home has a large number of repair tools, from pipe wrenches to repair sewer pipes, universal meters to measure resistance and current, simple bolt and nut screwdrivers to specialist tools such as soldering irons pipe knives and saws. Unclear partitioning and storage often leaves our homes dirty and cluttered, and even takes up a lot of space. Today we will talk about how to organise and store these tools. (Huitong manufactures a wide range of tool boxes and other storage tools to help you solve your storage problems.)


Tool Set


Steps for organising repair tools.


● Prepare a piece of cardboard or tarp large enough before storing.
Whether you are organising at home or in the garage, these repair tools can get dirty on your floors and furniture. So lay out a cardboard or tarp to avoid this problem.


● Identify all repair tools thoroughly.
Find all the repair tools you can in your home and take this opportunity to clean all types of tools properly. If there is oil, you may need a bit of detergent to clean it up. If they are not too dirty, you can gently wipe the surface with a dust-free cloth soaked in water.


● Assess each tool individually.
Go through the tools you have just emptied one by one to see which ones are still in working order and have value for keeping and put them in a pile.

Throw away tools that are damaged beyond use, such as loose screwdrivers, rusty nails, etc., as long as they cannot be repaired. Tools that are judged to be undamaged but will not be used can be taken out and resold or resold to others to improve the utilisation of the tools. If there are multiple duplicates of the same functional tool, only one of them can be kept, and the extra can be given away or resold.

Only keep items that are absolutely essential. These are generally basic tools used for repairs and vary slightly depending on each household and use. In general, a screwdriver is needed, including flat and plum screwdrivers of various sizes, hammer, spanner set, tape, torch, utility knife, gloves, etc.
If you are really unsure about where to keep your tools, look around your home at the type of facilities or furniture on display and imagine possible repair scenarios before deciding whether to keep or discard them.


Store tools in certain categories.
You can store tools by function, shape, frequency of use, etc., so that when you need to use them, you can find them in time and save time.
