This product is available for pre-order because it is either on back order from the manufacturer or temporarily out of stock. Our pre-order status notifies you of the delay, but still allows you to proceed with your order with confidence. Pre-orders are considered sold to you based on the time of purchase so that you don't miss out when they are back in stock. If you purchase a tool set with items that are on back order, we will ship whatever is in stock of your order, and contact you with an ETA for the remainder of your order. See the "items currently on back order" tab below for more details. Feel free to contact us if you have questions prior to placing your order.
