The box tops have a unique double hinge system that allows them to open two ways.
With the front doors opened 90 degrees and the tops opened from the center out, the doors become supports and provide a full 28 inches of working space.
With the tops opened from the front, the 95 degree stop hinges keep the top in place providing you with 14 inches of working space.
The top compartment is divided into three parts; the two outer spaces are for tool storage. When it is time to tie, simply remove your tools, put the covers back on and replace your tools in the provided holes for easy access. There is also a square opening to store head cement so that it does not tip over. The center compartment is for storing the included matching fly box, other general storage and also contains the locking screw for the upper tray.
There are two trays provided, one upper and one lower. Each tray contains seven recesses to keep small items organized and from rolling around. They also have 1/4 inch holes on each side for inserting provided dowel pins for spools of thread. Each tray is symmetrical and works for tying left or right handed
The lower tray is non-locking, it is used by clamping your vise onto the tray and the edge of a desk or table at the same time. It can also be removed and put to the side while using a vise with a base.
The upper tray is locked in place by a thumbscrew in the top compartment of the box. This provides a secure and stable platform to clamp your vise down. By raising your vise higher, this is ideal for tying in the field
