Hello @Aaron34


Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. Thank you so much for joining us and sharing your question about hinges for your toolbox.


The store carries a few dedicated toolbox hinges. Would it be possible for you to post a photo of the hinge you have on your toolbox? This will give us a better idea of what it looks like and will let us give you a comprehensive recommendation on which hinge to use. However, if you're after a cover stay, I suggest a Goliath 185mm 100N Black Gas Strut or a Goliath Silver Metal Cover Stay. I've placed some links below for the toolbox hinges.



We look forward to seeing your toolbox photos.




See something interesting? Give it the thumbs up!

Hey Aaron,

You know what you need, don't you.

You need a slide-out carriage on that tool-box to get it out from under that cover, so you can access your tools,

then slide it back in.

One other thing, that ladder is screwed, what do you use that for?
