Stick the square in from the outside.

Yup, yup, and YUP !
I have one just like it (un-used) and I was told by an old housebuilder
that the slot is, indeed, for the framing square.

This doesn’t look good to me. It moves around quite a bit and with the load cantilevered as such I suspect it will wear a hole in the sidewall after bouncing around in the truck. Not to mention damaging the square as well. Looks like it would catch on things too.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

If you are not having fun then you are doing it wrong.

I guess if the bridge across the slot were not there the leg of the square could be inserted, then the closed lid would retain it in place. Or a hasp of sorts could be added to secure it.

I’m not getting this one. I don’t think the designers at The Sherman-Klove Co. would overlook a detail like this.

I saw one similar to this years ago and it was for a 3/4" socket set, the sleeve held the ratchet
