This might not be the best place to post this but my question is for the working locksmiths out there: What is the hardest tool/s to find a good way to store them? For me it’s car door opening tools. I would love to heard what other people’s problem tools are and their solutions.

Tool storage isn't that difficult really. I have my stuff compartmentalized. I have a large tool box for the tools I don't use on a regular basis but are basic tools. I have a bank bag I keep my picks and bump keys in, I have a bag just for electronics with all the tools I need for working on that stuff, I have shelves for all the power tools, I keep my SDS drill bits in a bin by themselves etc.

The real challenge is storing things like oddball tailpieces, cams etc. I have a million plastic containers where I try to keep that stuff sorted out separated by some kind of category like SFIC and non SFIC.

A re-purposed Rifle Bag seems like a decent way to store your car opening tools.
