Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering / hand-held power tools
French term or phrase: valises à tiroir
I am translating remarks from a survey on hand-held power tools for woodworking. The inconvenience is, that neither I nor the outsourcer have the questionnaire. These are suggestions for improvement, in this case of screwguns.

"Des portes en bout pour des visseuses qui tiennent le choc. Créer de valises à tiroir au lieu de valises qui s'empilent". (No further context, the next line refers to a different question).

My problem is associating "valises à tiroir" with screwguns.
