I like to make my own tool kit up, but every single year it seems to
get destroyed! LOL For the 06 season I used a nice rubbermaid
waterproof container wrapped all my tool in a towl then enclosed it
in the container no more than 3 trips in the year and a BIG hole appeared
in one of the corners! So who's got the best hot tip out there?
Cause I haven't discovered it yet! :bash: -Dave

P.S. Pics would be helpful to me and everybody else! :thumbsup:

Humm I don't carry much tool (only what came with the sled) since I think that I only open the hood of my sled once a season to check oil level...or show the engine to friends.

But before I convert myself to 4 strokes sled heres what I was doing. Put some sponges in the rubbermaid to keep tools from bouncing, and same thing in the place where you stuff your rubbermaid to keep it from bouncing like in the rear of the seat. Problem solved and if you need to add stuff squeeze the sponges. Sometimes its a good idea to wrap them in ziploc bag if your storage area is not well sealed from snow. Water can freeze the sponges and turn the tools unremovable from the back seat.

I've made up a small tool kit for each of my sleds. I'm using the can/tube that chips (like Pringles or Lay's) come in. I wrap it in duct tape (which can be removed and used as necessary), and then I have a small assortment of tools wrapped in shop towels inside the can. Multi-bit screwdriver, pliers, a knife, some matches, a socket for changing spark plugs. Not sure what else might be in there. Nice thing is, they close up virtually water-tight.



Currently both are housed in the Lay's plastic cans. They held up OK last season, but I was not out in the sub-zero temps to see if they can survive that or not. But the whole thing fits nicely in the seat storage compartment of both of my sleds.
