The Pro GateMouth Utility Bag's exterior is surrounded by pockets that are large enough to hold many different recovery or tool items. The bag shown above is holding an ARB 3/4" Bow Shackle and some Snap-on/Mechanix gloves, but any other item of similar size would easily fit into the exterior pockets.
The pockets on both ends are mesh and are amenable to holding wet or dirtier items.
The Pro GateMouth's interior is very large, and easily holds the two Expeditionware Recovery Straps, Superwinch Heavy-Duty Pulley Block, Safety Seal Tire Repair Kit, and UVIEW Freedom-Lite shown above, as well as many other items in addition to the foregoing.
Like the exterior, the interior is surrounded on all sides with utility pockets that will easily hold items such as PMI Heavyweight Recovery Gloves, ARB 3/4" Bow Shackles, a Fix-It Kit for the Hi-Lift Jack, Superwinch Heavy Duty Pulley Block and Receiver Shackle Bracket, Staun Tire Deflators, etc.
The Pro GateMouth comes standard with a quickly detachable shoulder strap, which can be used to haul heavier loads or enable the user to use his arms and hands for other tasks while hauling equipment. One can store the strap inside or outside the bag and keep it handy just in case, if only to increase the Pro GateMouth's flexibility and general utility.
The Pro GateMouth Jr. Utility Bag is a soft-sided bag that is smaller than the Pro GateMouth Utility Bag, and is just about ideal for holding your recovery gear.
A quickly detachable shoulder strap is provided with every Pro GateMouth Jr. The shoulder strap can be used to haul heavier loads or enable the user to use his arms and hands for other tasks while hauling equipment.
The Pro GateMouth Jr. features a heavy-duty zipper that glides easily. When opened in this fashion, the Pro GateMouth Jr. measures 12" x 10" at the base and 10" tall.
The Pro GateMouth Jr.'s mouth opens fully to enable to user to insert larger items. All four sides of the Pro GateMouth Jr's interior are lined with pockets of various sizes to organize smaller items.
Both sides of the Pro GateMouth Jr. feature exterior pockets for storing smaller items.
Recovery chains like this 3/8" x 20' Grade 70 Chain With Clevis Grab Hooks from Curt Manufacturing are a necessity on the trail. With the chain, one can use his Hi-Lift Jack as a manual winch. Also, one can use the chain for rigging around rocks that would otherwise abrade or cut a recovery strap. Recovery chains are a necessity, but can be difficult to store and use without a bag to hold them. These chains weigh over 30 lbs. and require a bag strong enough to hold them without falling apart.
The Pro GateMouth Jr. is up to the task and easily holds two 3/8" x 20' choker chains.
Here is one way to organize the Pro GateMouth to support hand winching. This Pro GateMouth Jr. is shown holding a Curt Manufacturing 3/8" Choker Chain, PMI Heavyweight Recovery Gloves, two ARB 3/4" Bow Shackles, and a Fix-It Kit for the Hi-Lift Jack. All fit easily into the Pro GateMouth Jr. and there is still room for plenty more. With these heavy items, the issue becomes more of weight than of capacity.
There are many other ways to organize one's recovery gear. This Pro GateMouth Jr. is shown holding a Curt Manufacturing 3/8" Choker Chain, PMI Lightweight Recovery Gloves, Superwinch Heavy Duty Pulley Block and Receiver Shackle Bracket, and three ARB 3/4" Bow Shackles.
The Pro GateMouth Jr. is also ideal for holding recovery straps like the Expeditionware Recovery Strap and protecting it from abrasion as well the sun's degrading UV rays. The combinations of what recovery gear can be organized with the Pro Gatemouth Jr. is almost endless. For example, one can have one Pro GateMouth Jr. holding heavier items such as chains, shackles, etc. and another Pro GateMouth holding lighter items such as gloves and straps and other similar items. Both Pro GateMouth Jr. bags can be stored inside a Pelican Protector Case and so on. Your options are limited only by your imagination.
The Pro GateMouth Jr. is ideal for holding your recovery gear.
Recovery tools are but part of the total tool picture. We also recommend carrying the tools necessary to repair your vehicle when it suffers the inevitable break-downs or vehicle carnage. The Tool Roll is ideal for carrying the various tools one requires to repair his vehicle in the field.
The Tool Roll features heavy-duty construction throughout. The partitions between the pockets are reinforced against degradation with heavy use. All of the edges are covered and reinforced to prevent fraying.
When rolled open, the Tool Roll measures 28" wide and 14" deep. The Tool Roll is large enough and its pockets are varied enough to hold a plethora of different tools. For example, the smallest pockets at the left are shown holding 1/4" extensions and a bit holder. Larger pockets can hold items like the Ullman Devices Telescoping Powercap Magnetic Pick-Up Tool. The largest pockets are large enough to hold various pliers such as the KNIPEX Cobra Pliers, Snap-on Electronic Service and Retaining Ring Pliers, and Irwin Vise-Grips shown for illustration purposes. Even handles as large as the Snap-on Soft Grip Ratcheting Screwdriver Handle System fit easily into the Tool Roll's larger pockets. Wrenches of course fit easily, even wrenches with half-moon or S shapes. The Snap-on 3/8" Comfort Handle Ratchet on the far right is more than 13" long, yet fits easily into into the Tool Roll's dimensions.
The Tool Roll features three pockets for carrying sockets or other small items. These pockets are held closed with Velcro to prevent them from opening inadvertently.
To close the Tool Roll, simply roll it up.
The Tool Roll features two long nylon straps and buckles. The straps are adjustable for length and permit the user to make his Tool Roll as small or large as his tools will allow. The carry handle permits easy handling of heavy tools.
The Tool Roll will fit into your tool box, the Pro GateMouth Utility Bag, Pro GateMouth Jr. Utility Bag, or a Pelican Protector Case.
Keep your Tool Roll handy in your trail kit, as you will eventually need it in the field. It's only a matter of time. Having the Tool Roll means not having to put your tools on the dirty ground and having your tools organized for easy access and to account for missing tools.
Another very useful organization and storage device for your tools is the Wrench Roll. Unlike the Tool Roll, the Wrench roll is designed specifically for wrenches, ratchets, ratchet extensions, and other relatively long and thin tools. Tools like pliers will not fit. The Wrench Roll's capacity is immense. Shown above are 13 different Snap-on Flank Drive Plus combination wrenches, from 1/4" to 1", and a Snap-on 3/8" drive Comfort Handle Ratchet. The Flank Drive Plus wrenches are longer than standard wrenches to match the additional turning power these unique and innovative wrenches can deliver, and the Comfort Handle Ratchet is more than 13" long, and yet all of these long tools fit easily into the Wrench Roll's pockets. The Wrench Roll is 27" wide side to side, 10" tall at the left, and 22" deep at the right. The smallest pocket on the left is 3" deep, and the largest pocket on the right is 14" deep. Though the open ends of these wrenches are protruding from the mouths of the Wrench Roll's pockets for illustration purposes, the tools can go even deeper into the pockets to prevent them from rubbing and clanging against each other.
Even wrenches larger than 1" in size easily fit into the Wrench Roll, as the Wrench Roll's larger pockets will accommodate 32mm box wrenches. The larger handles on Comfort Handle Ratchets will also easily fit into the pockets. You can carry almost every wrench required to repair or service your vehicle. A 30mm wrench for your radius arm mounting nuts; a 9/8" wrench for your crankcase drain plug; a 15/16" wrench for your axle mounting bolts; a 19mm wrench for your Disco1's Old Man Emu Shocks; a 18mm wrench for your Disco2's swaybars and rear shock bolts; a 17mm wrench for your Defender's drive flange bolts and JATE Rings, a 9/16" for the driveshafts, a 13mm wrench for your Shock Tower Securing Rings; a 1/4" ratcheting box wrench for turning screwdriver bits in confined spaces; the list goes on and on. All of these wrench sizes are well within the capacity of the Wrench Roll.
To maximize the utility of your field tool wrenches, we recommend you acquire some ratcheting combination wrenches such as the Snap-on and Matco versions shown above. We find these wrenches to be very handy and easy to use. The box ends feature a 15-degree bend for knuckle clearance and reaching around obstructions. The box ends have reversible ratcheting mechanisms with five-degree reset, so they can be used like ratchets on non-countersunk fasteners in confined spaces, and the need for deep sockets is oftentimes eliminated. The open ends are also unique. The Snap-on Flank Drive Plus and Matco Opti-Torque designs deliver far more turning power than parallel-jaw designs. These professional-quality wrenches are also longer and provide greater leverage than wrenches from cheaper makes. As general-purpose wrenches, they are difficult to beat.
We recommend keeping your Tool Rolls and Wrench Rolls with your vehicle and using them whenever you work on your vehicle. As you work on your vehicle more and more, you will become more skilled and find the need for some specialty wrenches that standard combination wrenches or ratcheting combination wrenches cannot do or can barely do. All of these wrenches fit 14mm fasteners, yet perform various tasks better than standard combination wrenches or can access some fasteners that standard wrenches cannot. Add these specialty wrenches to your Tool Roll and Wrench Roll as the need arises and keep them with your vehicle. You will be better prepared when you suffer a break-down or some vehicle carnage in the field. Keeping these tools neat, organized, and accessible in your vehicle is easy with the right organization tools.
Like the other items from Bucket Boss, the Wrench Roll features heavy nylon construction and reinforced seams and edges. The Wrench Roll is designed to carry heavy tools and built to take it.
The Wrench Roll features three eyelets on the top flap to permit the user to hang the Wrench Roll during use. If your tools are organized correctly, the pockets will also let you know if you are missing a tool. It is very easy to lose tools when wrenching in the field at night, or lend out tools to others and then forget about them. An empty pocket will remind you that a tool is missing before you roll up the Wrench Roll.
The three eyelets are reinforced with brass grommets to prevent wear and tear to the Wrench Roll.
When not in use, the Wrench Roll's top flap can be flapped down to protect the tools even further, and the entire Wrench Roll can be rolled up into a cylindrical shape for storage. In this configuration, the tools encased within are protected from rubbing and clanging against each other, and there is no wasted space within the Wrench Roll. The Wrench Roll shown above is the same one as in the previous photos, and holds 13 Flank Drive Plus combination wrenches from 1/4" to 1" and a 3/8" drive Comfort Handle Ratchet. The Wrench Roll can be cinched closed in a shoelace fashion with the two integral ties.
Take your tool organization to another level with these fine Bucket Boss products. The storage and organization combinations you can achieve with these items and some Pelican Protector Cases are infinite.
Here is a Pelican 1610NF Protector Case fitted with a 1609 Lid Organizer. The 1610NF has the ability to hold a very large number of Pro GateMouth Utility Bags, Pro GateMouth Jr. Utility Bags, Tool & Cable Bags, Tool Rolls, and Wrench Rolls and still have room left over for many other items.
When filled with recovery gear and hand tools, a 1610NF would be very heavy. The 1610 has a retractable handle and wheels to ease moving loads around, and side handles for lifting the 1610 into the vehicle.
Organized in such a fashion, your vehicle will be clean and neat, with all tools readily accessible and easy to find when you need them.
