Kit Component Details

Integrated Organizer

Find the items you need quickly: Tools and a wealth of small components easily fit into the IO.

The IO is a sturdy 14” x 9” x 2” PPE tacklebox with 3 to 28 compartments depending on how you arrange the dividers.  Two permanently attached HDPE handles are equipped with tangs to securely engage any V2.0 1007 Base. A thumb-actuated spring-release mechanism easily and quickly clips the Base onto and off of the Integrated Organizer box.

 


1007 BASE, V2.0

Use to prototype, manage electronics, and transport your projects. 

 

14” x 8” x 1”
Approximate 54 sq. in. work surface
10×7 primary matrix; 9×6 secondary matrix
1/8” acrylic; your choice of matte black, sapphire blue, or neon green

Version 2.0 of the 1007 Base adds four rectangular laser-cut holes on the sides where it engages the tangs on the HDPE handles.  To be clear, V2.0 is functionally no different than earlier versions for project and prototype building.  All existing Clicks, Slides and Covers will work just fine on V2.0 Bases.  However, V1.xx Bases (i.e., the earliest versions) cannot easily be retrofitted to attach to the Integrated Organizer.

    HEY! This is a really useful travel setup. I did stick a top cover on, and I’ve put a handle on the cover for really easy carry. Handles at your nearest Ace hardware, etc, Use a fender washer pair to spread the stress on the plastic, and don’t do a death torque on the screws.
    The lower box might be better with total partition control.

  2. Don Latham (verified owner)

    Also forgot that one option might be to sell the box clamp/handle set as a separate option, with a little hole template sheet. That would enable a user to adapt his own box of various kinds.

      Thanks for the thoughtful comments, Don. We’re looking at your suggestions, but trying to manage the number of SKUs in our small company. That is not to say we won’t do both eventually.

    Holy cow, that thing is a rock! I love it!!!! Really nice design. I’ll be stowing a bunch of my components in TODAY!

    • Barbara

      Nice to hear that, Guido! Thanks for commenting!

    I am enjoying the portability of the IO workbench and often tinker in my home office or around the house with my kids. This is really a game changer for me to be able to jump on my board with no set up time between sessions.

      Thanks Scott! I love that it saves you time!
