Tool organisation for Snap-On Roll Cab - Shadow Foam

Tool organisation for Snap-On Roll Cab

Tool organisation is a hugely important part of a professional mechanics set up. Tools can be hugely expensive and misplacing them or not having them on hand can lead to increased time and replacement cost, both of which effect your businesses profits! We asked Peter Dodd, a vehicle mechanic, why he chose Shadow Foam for as the solution to his Snap On Roll Cab toolbox organisation. So here follows a real-life case study of Shadow Foam use.

What made you choose Shadow Foam for your snap-on roll cab tool organisation?

“I’ve been searching for a tool organisation solution for a number of years now to take over my numerous socket/spanner holders. I came across Shadow foam and got hold of a sample. I decided to go ahead and order the red dual colour foam. It arrived very quickly and well packaged, it took me a while to go at any speed but it didn’t take long to speed up”.

How did you set out your tools?

“I used a 6mm allen key as my spacer between sockets and a set square which worked pretty well. The foam itself is very easy to cut with the scalpel (as long as its sharp) but surprisingly durable when in use.”

Do you plan to organise all your tools with Shadow Foam?

“Although I haven’t finished all my tool boxes yet, what I have done I’ve been very impressed with and I will be ordering more for my other tool organisation projects when I finish these! Thank you Shadow Foam for all your help and I look forward to dealing with you in the future.”

Peter Dodd – Mechanic


When Peter got to work on his Snap On roll cab tool organisation it was using our original product which was, funnily enough, named Shadow Foam Original. Whilst this was discontinued back in 2021, people have been loving it’s replacement. The material not known simply as Shadow Foam is more stable, sustainable, easier to use and more robust than it’s predecessor. As it’s wipable too it makes it even more suited to tool control in a messy mechanics environment.
