Toolcheck is an online tool tracking system that can be used to securely register tools to a personal account.
Once registered, the tools are entered into a secure search engine. If the user’s tools happen to be stolen, he/she can mark their tools as stolen on their profile and if the tools are found, or offered for sale by the thief, the serial number can be entered into the Toolcheck search engine. Toolcheck will then let the user know if the tool has been registered on the site and if it has, whether it is marked as stolen. If the tool is marked as stolen, an email will be sent to the owner to notify them it has been found and where the tool is now located.
This information can then be relayed to the local authorities. Toolcheck can be used to search for serial numbers even if the individual is not a registered member of the website.
