T-LOC latches in other colors
« on: November 06, 2012, 03:33 AM »
I'm trying to color-code my non-Festools using different color T-LOC latches.  The problem is that, so far, I've found only blue latches (e.g. Kreg jig) in the US.  And I haven't even found those sold separately.  Apparently Japan Woodworker was customizing T-LOC systainers at one time, because I found a thread where they had provided a couple of FOG members systainers with orange latches (which I would like for my Fein MultiMaster).  Unfortunately, the Japan Woodworker is being sold to Woodcraft, and JW's website doesn't offer T-LOC latches (or systainers with latches) other than blue and Festool green (or anthracite, to match that color systainer).  Does anyone know how we in the US can get these, especially in orange but also in other colors?

What about classic Systainer latches?

Warren,

Great to see your selection and offer!  I will add that I have made an inquiry of Tanos here in the US directly to see if they have some advice for this side of the pond also.  I will post when I hear something back.

This is an old post but for those that are still looking for color latches Lee Valley offer the Tanos T-LOC latches in five different colors. Mini and standard are available.
That message was sent from my Talktative Fingers 10.0

Yep, get them from Woodcraft.  They have them in stock.  Your local Woodcraft can order them in. @JessicaDouglas

Although I really enjoy my Festools and Systainers, I just had to show my true colors. Latches from Lee Valley and Woodcraft.

Hi @Dick Mahany 
The latches look great, but how about some info on how you built that rolling SysCart under the systainers?

Thanks, Mike A.
