Now this may change some minds.  One lock and the entire stack is locked.  Kinda like a filing cabinet.

1- Yes, you will be able to lock your stacked systainer.

2- Yes, also one lock could be enough to lock them in for the purpose of having no one look at the inside.

sounds good franck,

i think the majority of people here are home-users of their tools and may not be interested.
I think all professionals have at some point lost something small and annoying on a mixed jobsite.
I would be interested in further security developments/integrations... wire in the plastic, reinforced locking points etc.

I don't use a big metal JOBOX but most professional contractors do. I like the expanding toolbox part of systainer and use it regularly. often the systainer stack is intimidating/new/strange enough to keep people from going thru your stuff.

do you have photos or an explanation of how this would secure the systainers below it?
does it just lock the one right below it?

As a home shop use, latches in different colors are of interest to me.  Locking latches are not, unless the cost differential is much less than ~US$20 proposed.

Friends, family and Festools make for a good retirement.  PCs...I'm not so sure.
