Tool Storage Box Hieroglyphics

So easy to do, but yet it is not done.

A lot of tools come with storage toolboxes, for example, a cordless drill or a circular saw.

However, trying to put them back in them toolbox, is like looking at a plastic Ecsheresque maze, wherein repeated attempts to put the tool, it's cord and other components, back in the box takes at least 40 secs of unnecessary trial and error.

I propose stickers affixed to the relevant regions inside, telling me just how to do it.

This certainly isn't baked by Makita or Dewalt.

       Never seen it, certainly a good idea. I got this really cheap biscuit slot making machine (no idea what it is called in english), and it fits in the box real good AND it has a compartement for the cord! All my really good and expensive tools have the problems you describe.
