Tool control that puts you in command

For technicians, lost tools can kill a productive workday with wasted time. That’s why Snap-on has kept technicians organized and productive since 1920. Now, over 100 years later, Snap-on offers the most advanced form of tool control in the industry: Tool Control Level 5.

From seamlessly integrated access control to fully automated systems that automatically monitor who has which tools and where they’re working, Level 5 improves every aspect of tool management. And it works with your crew, never against them, to decrease downtime and improve productivity. That way everyone can concentrate on what matters most – the job at hand.

Tool Control

The Snap-on Level 5 ATC system works at the speed you do

Open the box, get the tools, go to work. Other systems require additional steps to scan or log activity. We do it automatically so you don’t waste time, and you don’t need to depend on other steps to insure accurate results.

Snap-on Tool Control Level 5 ATC system boxes are network-ready, either through Ethernet or wireless connection. That means you can review activity at all the Level 5 ATC boxes in your location from a central computer—you don’t have to physically inspect each box.


  • No individual tool scanning required
  • No RFID tags to install or replace
  • No limitations on tool size—from 1/4” screwdriver bit to as long as it fits in a drawer
  • Intuitive interface—easy-to-use touchscreen
  • Audible voice confirmation of tool removal and replacement
  • Automatic locking
  • Errors announced and displayed for incorrect tool position or drawer not closed

Powerful Administrative Software

Tool Control Level 5 ATC boxes are networked, either wirelessly or by Ethernet and managed by powerful, easy-to-use software. The administrator can view all the boxes on the network, whether they are on or off-line, and the status of each box—including the number of tools issued, the active users, and all history. System alerts—sending email or text messages to supervisors, for example—can be customized for lost or broken tools or calibration requirements.

Custom reports can be created on each tool’s frequency of use, inspection and calibration dates, and other specific location requirements.
