Currently on the character sheet there is no way to roll basic tools checks, so what a lot of people who do this regularly will do is add certain tools to their skills list as custom skills.
For convenience however it would be much better if the tools were automatically added to the skills lists.
My preference for implementing this would be as a tab, allowing the skills list to either show skills as normal, or be switched to tools instead, showing a complete list of all tools (including those in which you are not proficient, in case you happen to get a hold of some anyway). This would have each tool set to a suitable default ability (Dexterity for Thieves Tools, Intelligence for Tinker's Tools etc.) and automatically applying proficiency bonus, expertise, jack of all trades etc. as appropriate.
Doing it this way would allow a player to roll any tools check they need to, and avoid having to try and find some way to crush tools rolls into the bottom left corner of the sheet.
