S&B Filters has come out with new flexible silicone tool trays, which look to be a useful shop accessory for automotive work.
These trays are aimed at users working on cars, trucks, airplanes, UTVs, and pretty much any kind of vehicle.
From the promo video clips, the S&B Filters silicone tray is flexible enough to conform to different surfaces, such as a car hood, airplane wing, and even over the top of a tire. But, it also looks rigid enough to allow you load it with some tools and carry it to where you need to work.
On the wing of an aircraft or in the engine bay of a diesel truck, our flexible tool tray grips to almost any surface.
The above image, credited to @idpimpactdieselperformance on S&B Filters’ feed, shows the approximate scale of the medium-sized tray.
There are 3 different sized trays – small, medium, and large – each with a slightly different design. The small tray has 5 compartments for holding smaller tools, the medium tray has 2 small spaces and a much larger main compartment, and the large tray has 4 small compartments, a large compartment with ribbed surface, and two handles.
The large silicone tray can fit one small and one large tray. You can buy them all separately, or buy a 3pc set.
In regard to strength and durability, S&B Filters says that their trays are made from a premium silicone material that won’t crack over time, has exceptional strength, and can handle extreme temperatures. It cleans up with soap and water, or a mild degreaser if necessary.
You can choose from 5 colors: blue, red, lime green, pink, charcoal grey.
- Small: 11.45″ w x 7.34″ l x 1.23″ h
- Medium: 11.45″ w x 9.59″ l x 1.23″ h
- Large: 12″ w x 23.09″ l x 1.57″ h
- Small: $30
- Medium: $50
- Large: $70
- 3pc Set: $140
From my experience testing out the checkout system, ground shipping looks to be free unless you wish to upgrade to faster delivery speeds. S&B Filters also sells the trays through their storefront on Amazon.
The trays are made in the USA.
I like the look of these new silicone tool trays. The large tray can fit a small and medium tray if you want additional storage options or if you want to spread some tools around. I’d guess it could hold two small trays if you were so inclined.
The ribbed or gridded surface of the large tool try caught my attention. I tend to work on the floor, and fasteners big and small sometimes roll away.
I’ve seen silicone mats before, and these look different enough to have caught my attention. They look sturdy and practical. The pricing is a little lower than competing products already on the market, from Grypmat.
Is this something you could use?
