Quick Draw Holster for Essential Tools

A full toolbelt is cumbersome and often unnecessary. My go-to option is this Four in One Tool/Tape Holder by Occidental, which clips on my belt and keeps my essential tools within easy reach.

The utility knife sheath comes with a plastic insert for non-retractable blades, and there’s also a leather sheath for a screwdriver, awl or similar sized tool. The quality of Occidental’s tool belts is unparalleled, and this holster is no exception.

Tough Built

A More Organized Toolbox

Tired of rifling through your toolbox to find what you need? This modular 18-inch tote from ToughBuilt includes a ton of pockets and loop holders, along with three tool storage panels that slide into slots in the bag. Store your tools in sections or categories to locate exactly what you’re looking for, instantly. Grab one tool at a time, or pull out a panel and bring it with you to master the task at hand.

The detachable softbox works great for fragile items like a laser level or multimeter. Best of all, its hardbody construction is just as tough as your old steel toolbox, and way lighter. It’s also available in 12-inch or 30-inch versions.
