I think mine is the 1150. It's the perfect place for something light like a first aid kit. If you're using it for a tool kit, with more weight, I would brace it from behind just so it doesn't shake back and forth and break loose of the fender. I'm going to brace mine now that I've changed luggage and have a side to side brace behind it now.
Here's the interior dimensions of the 1150, 8.18" x 5.68" x 3.62".
The only concerns I would have about using it for tools is when you open it, will they all fall out? Also, if they are wet at all when you put them away, they might rust bad being a waterproof box.
Worst case scenario, you use it for something else.
