Has anyone here ordered the tube liners in other colors and if so - got pics?

The clear is cool...I'm just curious what the other colors look like

Oh and YES I of course bought the Agra-supply tool tube, like 6 of them and I've yet to attach 1 cause I have no way of easily getting the crap out of the bags

Must-have product (if you have a Tool Tube) and E-Z guy to do business with. I ordered mine on a Friday and recieved it on a Monday!

Here it is full of tools:


and here is is in the Tool Tube:


and it makes getting all of this into the tube possible!

Holes in the tube?????

I order a few of these about 2 months ago and I just noticed that there is a small hole in each directly under the upper mounting bracket........... anyone else have holes in theirs'?

I am going to just put some silicone over it but still ----- what is the point of the rubber gasket top if the thing has a hole in it?

Vacuum break?
Hot day and sunshine - close it tight.
Next cold morning you wont get the lid off if it seals 100% tight...

damn those laws of physics..........

that does make sense - but I have other water tight container w/o the hole that are able to be opened?

I was wondering if others' tubes had a hole in them and if anybody noticed a significant amount of water getting into the tube?

When mounted upright on a John Deere that vent hole has an awning over it. Considering the price I wasn't going to complain when I mounted the tube close to horizontal. I covered the hole with black electrical tape and then installed a new vent. I marked the spot on the cap that's lowest when cranked on tight and used a small triangle file to put a tiny groove there. It hasn't been water tested yet but it should be good. A clear vinyl insert bag would complete the weather resistance...

+1 for that! I emailed SKT yesterday morning, got an immediate reply, called him up, gave the CC info, and the tube bag was mailed priority mail to me yesterday! Nice!

Where's a guy get a handful of those "pavement is for SISSIES" stickers? I haven't seen that one before, and most definitely need some of those!

tool tube liners

I emailed and then spoke to SKT industries about their tool tube liners. Very nice people to talk to. I ordered 4 clear liners Wednesday and was I ever surprized when they arrived Friday!

Great product from great people.
