Minimize Trips Up and Down the Ladder With Werner’s Lock-In Tool Bag
Ladders are pretty simple in concept, but there’s always room for improvement in even the most basic designs. When you’re at height, you want to have your hands and arms free so you can remain balanced and sturdy. Plus, climbing up and down to grab the tools you need can become a hassle and even a safety risk. Werner’s LockTop ladder top and Lock-In Tool Bag are the brand’s solutions to many ladder-related woes. We’re looking at both of these products to see how they benefit tradesmen.
Werner LockTop Ladder: Overview
- Incorporated into the NXT, 6200, and 6300 series of fiberglass step ladders
- Storage compartments for tools and accessories
- Center insert designed specifically for impact drivers
- Includes carabiner holes to tether tools to ladder top
- 6200 and 6300 series step ladders include advanced ladder tops with additional features
The Werner LockTop ladder tops are incorporated into a variety of the brand’s ladders, including the NXT series, 6200 series, and 6300 series of fiberglass step ladders. They provide much-needed storage at height, with compartments for tools and accessories Pros carry with them on the job.
In fact, the center insert of the LockTop is designed specifically to store an impact driver, one of the most commonly used power tools. Now, instead of clipping it to your belt or trying to balance it on the top of a standard ladder, you can keep it out of the way with a specialized impact driver compartment.
The 6200 and 6300 series ladders include advanced ladder tops with additional features, such as a metal mounting plate for magnetic accessories and extra carabiner holes.

For even more storage on at-height jobs, the Lock-In tool bag securely connects to your LockTop ladder top to let you work hands-free. Instead of climbing up and down the ladder every time you need to grab a new tool, you can toss in everything you need to have at arm’s reach while working on your Werner ladder.
The bag features a shoulder strap that helps you maintain three points of contact while climbing, and a plastic anti-slip bottom for security during travel.
Additionally, each interior and exterior pocket features a velcro closure to keep your items safe and secure. You can also customize the inside of the bag with a removable divider.
