Instead of putting your drill in the in tool belt why not sling one low around your hips “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” style with a drill holster.  Clint Eastwood would be proud.

These holsters from Lee Valley keep your drill handy at a 45-degree tilt for quick draw situations.   They say that — besides looking very cool — the angle keeps the drill’s center of gravity directly over the holster and tucks in the exposed handle to prevent it knocking around.  You can even choose from a traditional leather holster — who wouldn’t want to go all “Gunsmoke” on the jobsite — and a soft-sided woven nylon version for those of you who want a more contemporary feel.

The holsters themselves fit most drills and can be ordered for lefties as well.  This might not work if you already wear a tool belt, but the cool factor might overshoot that.

Street pricing starts at $13.50

    I can’t find a link anywhere to one on the Internet, but I picked up several of the hooks from Ace hardware that clip to your belt and hold a drill by the battery at the end of the handle. I like them better because they are pretty much universal and don’t push the trigger while the drill hangs. I also use them to hang a drill on a ladder and have one fastened to a pole in my home shop so that the cordless drill is always handy.

    Absolutely genius! I think I know what I’m going to put in my dad’s stocking this year (and pick one up for myself).
