PAKstraps – Accessories for Milwaukee Packout Boxes

The PAKstrap is a cost effective struggle stopping product that allows you to utilize the outside of your toolbox systems by securing and hanging your most used items for the project you are working on, and staying completely mobile at the same time.

We had many carts over the years for rolling around the jobsites, with tools hanging off all sides of them. When I was installing, the Milwaukee Packout system had not been developed.

This was another product that I designed WITHOUT a name. So, as usual, I put it up on Instagram for suggestions, and I think within minutes, a friend of mine came up with the perfect name. The PAKstrap!! Thank you to Nate Adams, he can be found on IG @builtby_n8

Our very popular “Kaizen Holester”

A clever tool with a clever name! This is a simple tool I invented for punching holes in foam, however, quite often I need to collaborate with other creative folks to come up with a product name. So, I took this tool, posted it up on Instagram, and within hours, we had a name! I am thankful to have met a great semi-local guy, from MA by the name of Lucas D’Angelo who cleverly came up with the name. We have been friends ever since.

The Original Kaizen Holester tool, thankfully Kaizen is all about continuous improvement, as our latest Holester tool is far superior than the original!


Before the Kaizen Holester tool, this is how we made finger pull holes.
