Matrix Concepts M21 Magnetic Stacking Tray - Tool Of The MonthPosted in Product Reviews on November 19, 2013
Matrix Concepts targets their products primarily at the powersports industry, but the M21 Magnetic Stacking Tray is worth knowing about (and using) even if you never plan to ride a dirt bike or a quad.
Sold in a three-pack, the M21 is available in gray, black, blue, or red. The only difference is the color; the dimensions are the same, allowing you to buy (and stack) as many as you like. The tray is 10 inches wide, 15.3 inches long, and 1.75 inches deep. A magnetic strip runs down the center.
It's liquid-tight, so you could use the M21 magnetic stacking tray to catch a small spill if you had to.
Why is this powersports product worth knowing about? It provides a clean, portable place to put tools and small parts during a wrenching session. Using multiple trays lets you organize parts or tools, and thus helps workflow along more efficiently. The trays work well in the garage, but the compact size makes it practical to carry with you in the vehicle. The reasonable price (at press time, MSRP was $29.95 for a three-pack) means if a tray gets thrashed beyond use, it's not the end of the world.
