Thanks to Travis (ToolsbyDesign), we see that there’s a new Dewalt parts storage product coming out, the DWST14121 flip bin organizer.
From the looks of it, this is a vertical organizer with removable flip-out bins, and it can be stacked with Dewalt’s other Pro organizers.
This unique organizer has 12 removable bins that can either be individually opened from within the organizer unit or be taken out for full accessibility on the jobsite. A lock on top securely holds all of the bins in place, and allows items to be safely transported.
Each bin has a clear impact-resistant polycarbonate window.
Dewalt specifically says that the side latches can be used to connect their flip bin organizers back-to-back. It can also be mounted to a wall or other vertical surface.
A locking mechanism, at the top, helps to ensure that bins are secure for transport.
The organizer is 13-7/8″ tall x 17-3/4″ long x 3-7/8″ deep, and has a 15 lb load capacity.

This looks like it could be neat.
The bins are removable, and the flip-bin description suggests that they pivot outwards, instead of sliding out, which sounds like it might help with transportability.
Why didn’t they make this Tstak or ToughSystem compatible? Well, it is compatible with Dewalt’s other Pro organizers. But I imagine most users will use it standalone, wall-mounted, or in back-to-back pairs.
Dewalt’s modular tool storage systems are all horizontal-based systems, and something like this doesn’t seem like it would work optimally. If connected to say a Tstak stack, you couldn’t access anything without first detaching the organizer and raising it to a vertical position.
