The Bigg Lugg 2 is just an elastic loop with a ball on the end that fits a socket that clips on your belt. But it beats the hell out of balancing that $400 pneumatic nailer on top of a ladder and hoping for the best. Think of it as a universal tool holster.
Peter Kahn — a frustrated contractor who couldn’t find a good way to keep his nailer close at hand — invented the Bigg Lugg, a simple hook attached to cushioned clip intended to hold cordless drills. Next came The Bigg Lugg 2, which upped the ante, attaching to pretty much anything you can wrap its bungee loop around — anything up to ten pounds.
Bigg Lugg also offers several other products that work with the Lugg 2’s ball-and-socket system, including a nail/tool pouch that hangs off the belt clip socket. Pricing for the basic set (pictured) starts around $10.
