The Gator GX-1813-PLT-TSA Utility Case With Tool Pallets, Foam Interior and Wheels is an all-in-one hard-shelled case for carrying your tools. This ATA approved case (Air Transport Association) provides excellent, water-resistant protection of the contents due to the built-in gasket in the lid.
There are two strong easy-to-use outside hinges with durable draw bar latches. For those who travel frequently, these are latches can be opened with a TSA "master key" so that if the case is checked as luggage, it does not have to be left unlocked for inspection. The TSA screener can unlock, inspect, and re-lock the case himself without damaging the case. The latches also feature "Impact Diversion Dishes". These are pieces of plastic on both sides of the latches that will shunt away any forces that might otherwise shear off the latch.
The interior contains an equipment-friendly 4" of foam padding in addition to a carpeted finish. There are also two removable tool pallets that can hold all your emergency repair and support implements such as pliers, crimpers and screwdrivers.
For ease of transportation, there are recessed wheels that are supported by a retractable tow handle that will make navigating ramps, parking lots and airports a breeze. When you don't need the wheels, there is an additional carry handle.
For any musician, protecting your instrument is critical - and if you've ever played in a band, you know that roadies and car trunks can be rough on gear. Loading and unloading under various climatic conditions puts your gear through stress - rain, wind or snow. However, when it's time to play, you want to know that your gear has made it to the gig in one piece and is ready to go. Gator Utility Cases are made with the needs of the musician in mind.
