The orange thing is probably part of the locking mechanism to keep the cover closed. It appears the metric tools are near us and the SAE tools are on the far side of the set. If that's the case, this would be a great starter set of wrenches and sockets.
On the other hand, If you go to a Sears store and check out what they're selling, you'll see this is the old school stuff. There's many variations on all the tools sold in this set, it's really what you might need it for is what counts.
Most cars made since 1980 or so use all metric fasteners, there's nothing SAE on any of mine or my kid's bicycles.
Does this have the "most used" tools or should I buy a "bigger kit"?
Edit: I see now there are 300, 500, and even "1000" kits... Are those worth the price? Or are the parts just redundant?
If you're looking for serious mechanical work, this will naturally be not enough. But Sears makes their massive sets highly redundant - have a bunch of sockets that are for 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 ratchets, then make a bunch of sockets that would fit each size and both in 6 and 12 point configurations.
You will still need a large number of different extensions, breaking bars, locking & regular pliers, universal adapters, socket adapters, etc.
