How to Mount and Use a 3-Tier Shelf on Your UTE?

If you’ve been looking for a new toolbox or an item to store your tools while at the construction site, you might as well look at our 3-tier shelf. This simple but highly effective storage item will keep your tools neatly arranged and accessible at all times.

The shelf is made from 2mm powder-coated black aluminium which looks impressive and is highly durable. Weather conditions won’t affect it, and it is also tough enough to throw tools in it without paying too much attention. These items are simple but highly valuable for anyone working with tools.

In this blog post, we talk more about how to mount it on your vehicle, how to use it, and what its benefits are. If you want to know more about it, keep reading and learn everything about this shelf that will help you arrange and never lose your tools again.

1. Read the specifications before installing

Every item comes with a description and written specifications. You can find exactly how much it weighs, the dimensions of the shelf, and many other things. Aside from this information, you can read about how you should mount it on a vehicle or other solid surface.

You will need specific tools to do it, and if you have them, it should not be a problem. That stands, of course, if you’re skilled and experienced enough in working with a drill, screwdriver, and possibly a hammer. The procedure is fairly simple, but you will need some experience and skills.

2. Ask the pros in the shop to do it for you

If you don’t feel skilled enough to do something like this, you should ask the pros to do it for you. If you order this through the mail, you can always come down to the shop and ask the pros to handle the issue for you. They are doing this daily, so it will not be a problem for them.

There’s no need to order through the mail and go back to the shop. Pick up the telephone and share the specifics. The item will be ready and wait for you to drive in. The whole procedure is not complicated and can be done quickly, so feel free to come by and check the shop.

3. Use it as a free-standing item

If you don’t need it fixed, but you want to be able to take it from one place to another and use it as a free-standing item on which you can store tools, then that’s possible, too. You don’t have to mount it on anything, but simply take it with you and secure it just so that it doesn’t fall off the rear tray or tub.

When you arrive at your destination, put it where it is best. It is lightweight enough to carry it around but also sturdy enough to be sure it will not fall under the pressure of the tools you need to store. It’s an excellent item for your remote construction gigs.

4. Install it inside a toolbox canopy

Another use is to install it inside the toolbox canopy you have mounted over the rear tray. Its dimensions allow you to play with it as you want. It is flexible and will fit inside the robust toolbox you might already have and use.

Toolboxes and canopies are usually empty. You can store anything you want inside and be sure they are safe and secure from thieves or bad weather. However, there’s no reason to keep tools inside without any order. Installing a shelf of this kind will help you arrange the space and keep everything neat.

5. Take it with you on your camping trips

Although most will use this shelf for their contracting needs, some will also love the idea of taking it on their camping trips. UTEs are widely used for camping and off-road activities. If you love this idea and frequently go to the great outdoors, you might find great use of this 3-tier shelf.

Since it is nearly indestructible, you can use these shelves to store anything on them, wherever in nature you are. Take the shelf out of the rear tray and carry it with you to the camping spot. It’s lightweight enough, so it won’t cause any inconvenience.


These shelves are simple to install and have a broad use. Contractors and campers love it, but you can also use it for home needs. We highlighted the essential points about how to install it, and what you can use it for.

If you like the idea of owning one of these items, check the offer and order one for you. Dimensions, colours, and everything else can be arranged if you order custom-made shelves, or, you can get one immediately from the offer available on our page.
