Calavera Tool Works – System Benefits
The Calavera 5# Utility Bag System
You bought the hardware and fixtures you need for your final punch-list, but half of it is now under the back seat of your truck thanks to that flimsy plastic bag. Or maybe you need just five more of those fasteners you regularly throw away by the handful. You’re so focused on the big ticket items that you lose sight of the waste, whether it’s the cost of the materials themselves or the extra trip to the store when you’re already tight on time.
Get organized, increase efficiency
With the Calavera System, you’re getting a full-on storage and organization system that will change the way you manage your most common supplies. Whether for high-use components and hardware or just to keep track of all those different sized nails and screws, the Calavera System is adaptable to how you get work done.
Eliminate waste, save money
Keep track of your critical use items and save money on wasted materials while cutting back on time spent searching for supplies or unnecessary trips to the store. The cost of working inefficiently is just too high.
Cut the weight, reduce fatigue
Carry plenty of what you need right now but none of what you were using on the job a week ago. Whether you integrate them into your existing toolbelt system or pare your kit down to small, task-specific kits, the Calavera System can reduce the load around your waist, easing stress on your knees and back.
5# Utility Bags - Key Features
At the heart of the system is the rugged 5# Bag, designed to take the hassle out of the transport, storage and organization of materials and supplies. Stuff them under your seat, drop them off the roof, throw them in the back of the truck, or just hang them on the wall. Your gear has never been this secure.
2.25 Quart Capacity – Conceived as a replacement for the flimsy cardboard boxes your nails and screws are sold in, the 5#Utility Bag is perfect for just about anything you need to organize, store or carry, whether fittings, hardware, fasteners or really… pretty much anything else.
Drawstring Closure – Quickly and easily secure your supplies, whether on your hip or in the bed of the truck.
Color Coded Webbing – Easy visual reference so you know what’s where at just a glance.
Label Window – Keep track of the details, for easy reorder or just to know what’s onhand.
Connectivity – A rugged carabiner, an integrated belt clip, and a sturdy leather belt loop provide plenty of options for fast and easy attachment.
Rugged Construction – A ballistic nylon bottom and heavy duty ripstop upper will take all the abuse you can dish out.
System Design – The Calavera System was designed not only with wall and table storage in mind, but for easy integration with your existing systems from your favorite brands.
Applications: By itself, the 5# Utility Bag is just that… a bag for your gear. What we’ve done is to build a system around it, maximizing its usefulness for professionals in virtually every trade, whether rough construction, HVAC, plumbing or fine finished carpentry and woodworking.
A key component of the Calavera System, the Base Bracket serves as home base for pretty much everything else, helping you organize your essentials while keeping them within easy reach or out of the way entirely. Easily mounted to the wall of your shop or van, or the edge of virtually any work surface, this little receiver is designed to adapt to the way you work.
No MFT, no problem
Though designed for easy integration with customers’ existing work systems, not everyone has a Festool MFT work table. Pick up an extra Base Bracket and attach it to the end of pretty much any other table or work surface to take advantage of what is otherwise unused space.
Designed for mobility, the Multi-Purpose Bar helps keep your supplies organized and at easy reach, whether mounted to the wall with the Calavera Base Bracket for storage or connected to your MFT for easy mid-project access to key materials.
More work, less clutter
Think of the top of your work table as prime real estate… then think about that useless, empty void on the edge of your table. The Calavera System helps you take advantage of otherwise unused space so you can work more efficiently, without the clutter.
A home for all those clamps
Your quick clamps and screw clamps are too costly to just jam in a toolbox or Systainer, not to mention how nice it would be to have one right at hand when you need it most. For this reason, we’ve included an extra channel in our Utility Bar to help keep your clamps safe and at easy access, on your shop wall or under your table. Best suited for screw clamps and quick clamps with a ½” head width.
The Gear Hitch is where it literally all comes together. Designed as a perfect match for our Carabiner, the Gear Hitch gives you an easy, secure means to stash your goods, out of the way or right at hand.
Though primarily intended for use with the Multi-Purpose Bar, Gear Hitches can be mounted directly to the Base Bracket or Festool MFT work table.
A key component for the Calavera System, our carabiner is no rinky dink keychain. Versatile, strong and lightweight, it goes well beyond the demands of a 5# Utility Bag, sturdy enough to withstand static loads of up to 400lbs.
Rugged, durable, strong
The ultra-lightweight design can be misleading, as our carabiner is designed to withstand not just the max potential load of our Utility Bags, but whatever jobsite task you might throw at it, however demanding the application.
Secure your gear, quickly and easily
Large gate opening and generous size enables fast and easy attachment to utility bars, belts, belt loops, toolbelts, or just about anything else you might want to hitch up to.
Less snagging, more working
With a wire-gate opening and a large, rounded basket our carabiner is designed to prevent snagging with rope or webbing, and features a nose hood that helps prevent accidental opening.
Available as 5-packs and Singles.
Applications: Construction, Woodworking, Shop Organization, and other General Use. Not for Climbing.
