Imagine that you are providing a customer service and just the tool you need is not where you thought. Inevitably, you will have to delay the delivery. Something that can affect all subsequent work. However, a simple gesture, such as placing drawer dividers, can solve this inconvenience.

Sometimes, even if we carry all the tools stored in boxes, cabinets or drawers, if they are not well organized they end up getting mixed up. And that makes the day-to-day of any professional difficult. Moreover, at a given moment, this can be a significant time investment.

Therefore, in this article we tell you what these utensils are for and how you can use them. Without a doubt, they will help you keep all your tools in their place, whether you have a fixed workshop or a mobile workshop.


Using a drawer divider is one of the most effective productivity tips you could follow in your workshop van. These little pieces will help you work more comfortably and effectively. 

In fact, they are highly recommended for benefits such as the following:

  • Avoid losing the smallest tools. It’s no secret that when you mix large tools with smaller ones, the latter end up getting lost and, just when you need them most, they are nowhere to be found.
  • Save time and money. As we said, the drawer divider is a very practical solution to prevent small parts from being lost. This will help you save money. They also serve to save time, because thanks to them you will enjoy a perfect order so you don’t spend too much time looking for a utensil. 
  • Win in professionalism. An orderly job is synonymous with a professional job. Therefore, we could say that another advantage of using drawer dividers is the final quality of the work.
  • Have all your tools located. Finally, using dividers is very useful to know where each piece is and go find it instantly.

Now that you know some of its advantages, let’s see how to make drawer dividers. 


The first step is to measure the height, length and width of the drawer. This will help you know what the measurements of your drawer divider are. You can use materials such as wood or methacrylate. Draw your dividers on it, taking into account the size you want them to have and move on to the next phase.


Next, you must cut the different pieces of your drawer divider and mark the area where you are going to assemble. At this point you will have several interlocking slats adjusted to the measurements of your drawers.


Finally, it is necessary to place these strips in the drawer and assemble them one by one. As a result, you will get different compartments in the same drawer. 

These drawer dividers are also useful for shelving vans and cabinets If you are going to use large storage equipment, you can add dividers to classify the utensils that you will store in them.
