Skylab was launched into low Earth orbit in May 1973 and occupied until February 1974 by three-man crews on three different missions. Several onboard tool kits contained a variety of tools and supplies for basic repairs and maintenance tasks that the astronauts might need to do while in space. This item is part of a duplicate tool kit from the backup Skylab orbital workshop displayed in the Museum.
