Any plans for more updated sortainers?
« on: April 19, 2017, 11:01 AM »
I really like the new SYS4/Sort3 and the Sys-combis.  I wonder if there are plans to update the 3/6/9/12 drawer sortainers into the updated style?  Namely adding full T-loc compatibility as well as solid bottoms to prevent snagging of contents...

Would sure be nice.

Wonder this myself, didn't make a lot of sense when you see the entire line has been updated with t-loc.  Does anyone have inside information on why Tanos came out with the T-Loc?  I examined both boxes and I have come to my conclusion that the T-Loc is cheaper to manufacture.  The T-Loc is less rigid and has less moving parts.  The larger versions of the T-Loc are sort of weak and wrack even. 

This leads me to think it was a cost cutting measure and a way to increase profits more than a way to improve the ecosystem.  For the cost and the clientele you would think the new ones would be a little heavier duty.

I personally like the way the T-loc works better, the single way of stacking them with the lid and the fact that they made both of them work together is fantastic.  Just wish they were a little more heavy duty (especially the handles) and also wish they had made the sortainers all t-loc.

I'd like to see them with a big draw at the bottom like the old sortainer 4. You can't get a battery powered tool in the new ones.
