Lock Block for Milwuakee Packout Rolling Toolbox

Lock Block in Place


Cody Perry on Facebook had an interesting idea, modify the handle of the Milwaukee Packout rolling toolbox so that you don’t need to press the button to raise the handle. His solution involved modifying the handle latching mechanism, but I thought of a non-destructive way to accomplish the same thing: the Lock Block.

The Lock Block fits into the lower latching holes on the handle and prevents the latching fingers from engaging the holes, so all you need to do is lift the handle (without pressing the release button).

This doesn’t effect the handle latching in the open position and it’s completely reversible — just remove the blocks and the handle will work like it did out of the factory.

Placing the Lock Block

Installation is very simple. There are two screws that hold the plastic handle in the metal rail extrusions. Remove these screws and pull the handle out far enough to expose the notches. Then just slip the Lock Blocks in the notches, slide the handle back into the extrusion, and replace the screws.
