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.
