Sealey AP490
Overall Auto Express Rating

3.0 out of 5

Along with the Stanley, this box was the lightest on test, coming in at just over 1kg. However, it feels a bit flimsy, as the sides flex easily and the catches are only plastic. At 49cm long it was also a bit tight for our long torque wrench, while the hacksaw only just squeezed in. And with a single tote tray divider, keeping your tools organised is hard. Compartments in the lid handle small items such as fuses and connectors well, though.
