The ergonomic Aerial Tool Bin™ for aerial platforms, scissor lifts, and boom lifts is designed to keep hand tools and supplies organized and within a worker’s reach. The product was created out of a real need for increased efficiency, safety… and to reduce back strain caused by constant bending to retrieve tools and supplies from boxes or buckets typically placed on the deck floor.
Developed by DeMore’s Innovative Design, Inc., Milwaukee, Wis., the portable, triangular-shaped organizer attaches to square or rounded 90-degree corners of platform railings, where it is secured with two OSHA-compliant locking bolts. Constructed from reinforced, non-conductive, UV-protected orange polypropylene, the Aerial Tool Bin™ is designed to provide a safer, clutter-free working area by keeping tools and parts off the deck floor and at waist height.
The Aerial Tool Bin weighs 10 pounds and is designed to hold up to 50 pounds. It measures 17- by 17-inches, with a 26-inch front, and features three compartments with removable partition walls. An optional multi-positional magnetic parts tray attaches to the metal strips on top of the bin. A tool belt holder safely secures a worker’s tool belt to the front of the bin. A built-in handle for easy carrying is incorporated in the design.
“I have 34 years of construction experience and have worked on all types of aerial lifts,” states Steven DeMore, inventor of the Aerial Tool Bin™. “I created this product for increased efficiency, safety… and to ease worker back strain from constant bending.”
The Aerial Tool Bin™ is intended for the commercial, industrial, and maintenance industries, where aerial lifts are commonlyused. The product is available through the manufacturer’s website, www.aerialtoolbin.com, and through select rental store locations.
