A molded case or plastic case by C. H. Ellis is one of the best investments you can make. For years, C.H. Ellis was known as "the tool case company." Our molded plastic cases are designed to be durable and rugged. We start by using an impact resistant polyethylene plastic to make the hard case shells. Then, we join the shells with a continuous aluminum piano hinge and a tough aluminum mating valance.
Molded plastic cases have internal hardware to hold top and bottom pallets that organize your tools. The lid of our hard tool cases has a turnbuckle strap and tray rests to secure the top pallet. The bottom of the cases has tray rests to support the bottom pallet.
Molded plastic tool cases have a variety of latches, most of which lock to secure your tools. Typical latches are draw bolt latches, quarter-turn butterfly latches and flip latches. Some of the latches are surface mount, others are recessed. If you are going to be shipping your case, recessed hardware is recommended (see our Tool Cases for Shipping.)
With the exception of our Poly Telecom plastic case (part number 26-4509) our plastic tool cases do not come with tool pallets, the organizers that hold the individual tools. These pallets must be ordered separately from our large selection found at Tool Case Pallets.
Molded plastic regular and economy tool cases all accept 17.00 x 12.00 tool pallets. Molded plastic large cases accept 17.00 x 14.00 tool pallets.

The poly telecom case (4509), which had 2 built-in tool pallets, has been replaced by the 05-5850 case. This case, which has been accepted by Ameritech for its technicians, comes with two pallets. The 05-5850 can be found under regular tool cases.
