Tool belts are a great way to organize hand tools that you need to access right away. While a truck tool box holds larger items and a tool bag may hold other valuable tools, a tool belt puts the tools you need most within the fastest reach. This can be very valuable when there's no time to run to a tool bag or tuck tool box.
Tool belts come in all sizes. The most affordable tool belts are simple ones that go through your belt loops and have places where pouches can be added for extra hand tool storage. These tool belts are ideal for the DIY homeowner. Carpenter tool belts have larger pockets for a leather measure tape holder and combination square holder with a quick release buckle for easy on and off. These already come with a number of pockets and pouches attached to a leather or reinforced vinyl belt. Tool belts can be very fancy with numerous pouches and tool organization systems. Some have up to 34 pockets, which work well for contractors and framers.
