Because it’s called a “Work Day.” Not a “Wasted Over $200,000 in man hours searching for one small missing socket day.”

Whether you’re working on a commercial airliner, or a military helicopter, you can rely on our Level 5 system to keep flying safe and keep your technicians productive. With our Level 5 Tool Control System, you get total control over your tools. From organization, to advanced security, to automation, it minimizes error and keeps small oversights from turning into big problems. In fact, it’s so accurate some of our satisfied customers won’t clear a jet for takeoff until they get the “all clear” from their Level 5 system.

Custom Kitting

From one-of-a kind kits to hundreds of identical tool sets, no one does tool kitting like Snap-on. We have many specialized tool sets designed to fit the specific needs of the aviation industry to choose from. Or, let us create a set that meets your exact needs with our in-house custom kitting capabilities.

Point of Use

You can position our Visual Control Cabinet close to the point of use so your technicians always have the right tools at the ready, letting them get the work done faster without having to make extra trips to the tool room. And with instant accountability and inventory management, you’ll know exactly which tool is where, and who saw it last.


And if your tools are on the move, you need access control that can be right there with them. Our battery powered LockView® boxes are ideal for environments where your tool storage units have to be mobile. It’s one security solution that can go anywhere your tool storage unit goes.


Foreign Object Debris costs the aerospace industry millions of dollars a year in damage to equipment and personnel. Using a Visual Control Cabinet or Storage Cage makes it easy to eliminate FOD. After maintenance, technicians can ensure that every tool is accounted for with a simple visual inspection.


Another option is to use our Automated Tool Control. It’s not just user friendly. It eliminates the potential for any human error during check-in, check-out, and tracking, giving it the highest levels of FOD compliance of any of our automated tool control systems.

Tool Crib

When it comes to fast, cost-effective asset management, our TCMAX® software speaks for itself. Because it literally talks. Which means your technicians can focus on the job, and not on the computer, when they’re checking tools in and out. Plus, with our secure barcoding system, you can identify, track, and control every tool, instrument and piece of equipment in your inventory. It also keeps track of tools that need calibration, helping you plan ahead so you can always have properly calibrated equipment on hand. TCMAX® even has real-time physical inventory capabilities to drive FOD and FME requirements and practices.


All this, without the costs of lost tools and equipment, or the lost time it takes to track things down or fill out requests for equipment to be replaced. With our tool crib management solutions easing your worries, you can focus on the task at hand.


Sometimes you have to take your tools ‘on the road’ to get the job done. That doesn’t mean you have to throw your tools into a bag and throw organization out the window. Our comprehensive offering of mobile tool solutions, including 4 different styles of dog boxes, keep you mobile—and organized.
