  • Tool Holders and Belts

    My questions are about Tool Holders that fit on your belt or attach to your tool. Also a few questions about belts. What is your preferrence?

    A. Aluminum or Plastic?

    B. Slide On belt or Clip On?

    C. Should the Hook be stationary or movable?

    D. What holder would you like to see on the market?

    E. Made in USA or Overseas?

    F. Lifetime warranty or does it matter?

    G. Price Point. How much is a quality holder worth that helps decrease repair bills and helps keep you from busting batteries or dropping your nail gun.

    H. Do you ever consider "Safety" in your decision when buying tools?

    I. What size belt do you prefer. 2 1/2" or 3"?

    J. For your belt, Do you prefer Leather, Web or Ballistic Nylon?

    K. What type of buckle do you prefer?

    L. Do you prefer movable pouches or pouches riveted in place?

    M. Are you satified with the type and size of pouches available?

    N. Do you have any suggestions or comments for improvements on these types of products?

    Please add your occupation ie; Carpenter, Electrician, Wood Working Hobbiest, etc.

          You're not alone on that one. Maybe that's why they make suspenders. LOL Even without a tool belt I have to watch that my pants don't work down.

            I go along with BadgerDave execept for N I would like to see some kind of cover for the nail pouchs so WHEN your tool belt flips over you don't spend 3 hours picking up 9 million nails or screws. They could elastic or velcro.

              Hi everyone, this is a good post, enjoyed reading. Now Badger Dave hit it right on the nose. Woussko, your right about the suspenders, man if I didn't have suspenders I would be sending most of my day holding up my pants or tossing my tool belt. And ballistic bob, I don't enjoy picking up 9 million nails and screws either. Leather tool belts are the only way to go, don't care for nylon myself. Great topic everyone....................

                I agree with most of BD's comments. Here's my pet peeve on all toolbelts. I can never find one with a receptacle, that is not a pouch, located on the right side of the belt or one of the pouches, onto which a tape measure can be clipped. I've tried pouches and magnetic attaching devices, but nothing is as secure as a clip. The clips I have seen always seem to be on the left side of the belt or attached to a pouch which is better suited to the left side of the belt.
                there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.
