Hi there,
Having read the threads on inserts, most are a few years old so hopefully more inserts have now become available. I have a GSB 18V LI with it’s own insert in a 136 lboxx. I have now bought a GDX 18 which I want to add to the box and require an insert for them both-do you know of one? I know several outlets are offering the GSB 18 with the GDR 18 (which is slightly larger than the GDX) so someone, somewhere must do one. I did contact Bosch Friday last and the lady who took my query said she would get back to me but so far I have heard nothing.
Many thanks,
David

Hi David.

We recognised a issue with people adding tools to existing L-BOXX and not having the right L-BOXX inlays. And with the twin kits the inlays are not available as a separate accessory. Which is probably where you have found yourself.

We have been working to add flexibility with L-BOXX 2.0 by producing half inlays and others that allows you to more easily mix and match. I'll email someone for more details.

Right David.

The deal is all the New L-BOXX 2.0 inlays haven't been launched yet but there is a silver lining.

GDX 18V-LI: 2608438092
GSB 18V-LI:2608438093

These are the old accessory half inlays and will still work perfectly. We don't get alot of orders for these but any Bosch dealer should be able to give you a price & order them in for you.

Hi Bob,

Thanks again for the reply but no luck I'm afraid: The part numbers you gave are not recognised by Bosch spares!!

The GDX came with a half insert but the GSB full insert will not cut to an ideal fit due to differences in hight, partitions etc. I find it crazy the after paying over £350.00 for two very good, professional tools we are resorting to "Bodging" inserts to enable them to fit: It doesn't give a good impression to my clients to see a "Heath Robinson" toolbox!
Any idea as to when the new Box 2 will come out and do you know if the new range of inserts will fit the existing LBoxx 136? I'd hate to think Bosch will produce a different size forcing us to buy a new box?!

They might not appear as they count as Accessories. They exist on the ordering system we have here so I know they are good numbers. However it would probably need to be a order from a dealer to get them in.

The new inlays will be 100% compatible with existing L-BOXX systems. Once I get more details I will post them here.

Hi Bob,

Many thanks again for the very prompt reply: I'll try a local dealer and see if they can come up with a price. Have you any indication yet as to when the new system may be launched?

Regards,

David

Was there any progress on this? I have the same issue, GSB-18V in a box, want to add my gdx-18V-ec to the same box. 

Also spoke with Bosch customer service and failed at getting anywhere. My only hope at the moment seems to be sourcing the 1/2 inserts via ebay or similar
