Wera 2go Helps us to Systems, Systems…

Independent Review

by Peter Brett

Regular users of Wera tools will know that the brand is well known for its systemisation. The tools are cunningly designed to work together to help users solve fixing and driving conundrums, as well as helping users like me maintain some semblance of organisation. Wera does this with careful tool

presentation in wallets etc, and by making tool identification as easy as possible. But most trades will identify with the following problem – even though all your tools may be organised into neat rolls and wallets in a toolbox, we don’t want to

animation of how it could be used, so potential customers could be clear on what to buy and how to use its features to their optimum capacity. I will start with what I think is the basic piece, the 2go 1. This looks like a little

black evening bag on first glance, but it is in fact a semi-rigid piece of strong black nylon fabric folded in the middle with four faces. Inside and out it is covered with big patches of hook and loop material. Over the fold there is a loop handle sewn in, but to this can be attached an adjustable shoulder strap. The strap has a padded middle section (with the distinctive Wera logo on it) for easy carrying. In this form the 2go 1 is a blank canvas onto which many other things can be easily attached

carry the whole box to the work point. So we do the next best thing – take a couple of handfuls of wallets and tool rolls and hope that there aren’t any unforeseen tool needs that come up. But wouldn’t it be good to have a quick method of carrying the tools – perhaps gathered from the workshop as well as the van – in a way that keeps them all organised, together and in an easy-to-carry (including up a ladder) format? As ever, Wera designers have got there

before us with the launch of the new 2go System, and regular Wera users will recognise on the 2go the wide use of hook and loop fixings and strong black nylon cases. I was sent several items of 2go, and even just unpacking the boxes and trying out various permutations I could start to appreciate just how clever 2go is. Good news for retailers is that Wera has

continued to develop the use of its high-quality, distinctive packaging. This sends all the right messages of quality and desirability that make for better sales and pride of ownership. All the pieces I was sent had the distinctive

matt black packaging with slick modern logos, clear illustrations of the contents and an


and then carried to the worksite in a convenient and organised way. Users who already have other Wera tools, like the rigid-walleted Zyklop and socket sets, will be able to attach these to the 2go 1 (on both sides) since they have the necessary hook and loop strips on them. I did try to attach as many of these wallets as I could – and it will carry a surprising amount of stuff – but the advice is don’t exceed 15kgs. Frankly, more than enough tools for one shoulder. The most distinctive part of the 2go set in my view is the 2go 2. It consists of

three pieces – the shoulder strap, the tool caddy pouch and the big rigid box - like a tool case. This case is 35cm wide, 34cm tall and 11cm deep, so is spacious enough to hold a good deal. But after a close examination I came to appreciate how versatility has been designed in. For example, in order to allow as much flexibility to attach smaller wallets, the outside – the front, back and sides – has hook and loop material attached to it. The front panel can also be folded down for easy access to the tools inside – and then the folded panel also has hook and loop attached. This increases the user’s ability to attach the wallets needed, as well as being able to work from the open case. A similar arrangement on the lid, which can be folded right back flat, means

that wallets can be attached here too. The fact that the case has a big, flat base to enable it to stand upright on an

even surface is also really helpful. It wouldn’t be out of place to carry a small cordless drill driver and spare

battery in the spacious main body of the case, but the third part of the 2go 2 comes into its own here. This is a tool caddy with adjustable compartments and its
