The plastic injection moulded case (lock-tabs) gave up the ghost a few years back, but I can honestly say they're excellent tools. I've used Snap-on Tools, Draper, Laser, etc and this set is just as good. Like anything - look after your tools and they'll last a lifetime.
How come it's Halfrauds if you've had value for money from your purchase ?

Because that's about the only thing I've ever had that was value-for-money for. Everything else they sell is way over-priced, or imported tat. My bother bought his girlfriend a mountain bike with full shock suspension for 100. I swear it weighs more than my Audi!

Their own-brand car headlight bulbs and wipers are worth avoiding for starters, and they're not cheap either.

I've had my snap on roll cab. Top box and intermediate for over 30 years. Everything that's not on the floor or bunged in the truck is in there. The boxes look like crap but they still all work. I do like the idea of stainless ones though. May be time to have a tool tidy up

Snap-on | Main Event | Video
No offence taken. I have used both in anger and would have the Costco one every time and have several thousand pounds in the account for other goodies
