I figure this is worthy of its own thread. I’m a huge fan of Kincrome tool boxes. I have a few. They have really lifted their game by improving quality and functionality.
No plastic bits is a good step forward. Better locks. Easier to open. Draws that hold more weight.

They got on board to support the Hackshop Garage lads. I think anyone would be amazed at just how much they have given them. Seems like most of their catalogue.

Then two of everything for each location. Their back shed and their industrial space.

This is something dreams are made of.

I am also a Kincrome fan. I received a great trolley and chest with tools setup for Xmas many years ago from the bearded one.

Smart man giving me a nice toolbox and tools as a gift :cool:

So really WE have a Kincrome setup :rolleyes:

But since then grabbed a bunch of Kincrome sets and other tools over the years. As well as the Xmas calendars.

Only had 1 warranty claim in 10yrs. Do need to replace a couple of sockets that are worn (wonder if that’s warranty?)

Would like a new bigger box but they are a tad pricey. Need some of those sponsorship deals :p

I liked the ratchet extensions that lock the socket in place. Then the socket doesn’t come off stuck to the bolt that is waaaay away from an easy to reach spot.

Lifetime warranty? It's at least worth asking.

Yeah might find a reseller that does warranty claims. Bunnings don’t and the autobarn I used last time is no longer the right kind of Kincrome seller so they don’t do warranty claims anymore.

How did your sockets get so worn? were you using them on an impact tool?

I would reach out to Kincrome through the socials. Maybe even via an old fashioned email. Share your story about how hard it’s been to claim warranty.

Bunnings warrant dead plants.

Can't believe they won't warrant tools.
