The idea for the SocketRoll came about by a mechanic during the summer of 2012 in Los Angeles, California. During that summer he spent many hours restoring a Ford Mustang Foxbody and swapping in a V8 to the 4 cylinder hatchback body. This, no doubt, required many hours around the car and especially at the junk yard looking for replacement parts that were unavailable at the dealer or online.
While searching for and acquiring parts at the junk yard he used his sockets quite a bit (obviously) and they had gone through many organizational type systems, from the old school rails, to the magnetic trays and even the classic Crown Royal bag full of sockets. The problem that he had was that the sockets would fall off the rails, the magnetic trays would pick up other items and only hold so many sockets and the Crown Royal (or really any other) bag was an unorganized mess that made finding the right socket for the job a lengthy task at times. Through this endless cycle of needing and searching for sockets he came up with the perfect idea for a portable and organized socket and ratchet tool holder. Hence…the SocketRoll was born!
The entire idea behind the SocketRoll is to eliminate the issue that enthusiasts deal with on a daily basis when working on their vehicles, boats, RV’s, recreational toys and others…finding the right socket in a short period of time and having the ability to transport them to the area where they are needed easily and with the ability to keep them organized.
