There are several reasons that I wish I’d had something like this recently while working on a “little” project, including the convenience of having all the things I need in one place rather than scattered throughout my pants pockets, and the potential prevention of “jean sag” because of all the stuff in those pockets. The 9-¾” × 5-¾” Bucket Boss 54045 Rear Guard tool pouch has four front pockets for tools, pencils, wallets, penlights, and so on, plus a rear padded and reinforced pouch and a clip loop for tape or keys. A snap loop secures it to your belt or tool bag.

While this awkwardly-named tool belt looks like a total home run for the safety/rescue crowd, I’d be willing to bet Toolmongers could find use for it as well. With tapered, deep pockets and PVC reinforcement at key stress points, it looks like it could hold pretty much anything you want to strap on.
The information directly from Bucket Boss is thin, but other sites reveal a few more details. It’ll expand to accommodate up to a 52″ waist, and it’s made of “ballistic material” which I assume is nylon. Some sites tag specific pockets as designed for a speed square, nail set, and knife pocket, while others don’t specify. All seem to agree that there’s a cell phone holder and a cordless tool (read: drill/driver) holder included.
Regardless, you’ll find it for around $60 all over.
All-Spec is having a 50% off sale on over 30 different Bucket Boss® tool organizers (tool bags, tool rolls, aprons, etc.). Three examples are pictured above: (from left to right) the Bucket Boss 56-pocket tool organizer for $14.43; the Pro GateMouth Jr. tool bag for $14.59; and the 22-pocket duckwear tool roll for $7.35. I suppose it has to be noted: the tools, buckets, etc. shown in the pictures are not included in the sale — tool organizers only.
Prices are good until December 31, 2009, so this might be a good opportunity to pick up some Christmas gifts, or drop some hints for your wish list.
What are you going to do with all those promotional coffee cups you have lying around? You could actually drink coffee out of ’em, but what could be cooler than wrapping a Bucket Boss Mug Boss around one and turning it into a workspace organizer?
It would’ve been even cooler if Bucket Boss had designed the Mug Boss so you could still use that 10oz mug to hold your morning joe, but the Mug Boss sports four interior pockets in addition to the eight exterior pockets — and you most likely won’t want Bucket Boss-flavored coffee. Like most of their products, Bucket Boss makes the Mug Boss from their trademark high-denier nylon.
To get the Mug Boss you’ll spend between $3 and $6. Of course the mug isn’t included, but who doesn’t have a spare coffee cup lying around collecting dust?
When I was sixteen and got my drivers license, my uncle gave me a gift that’s followed me for the last 25 years: heavy-duty jumper cables, 20′ long and made of about zero-gauge copper wire. When my kids started driving I knew they wouldn’t appreciate such quality, so all the other “fleet” vehicles ended up with Wal-Mart specials that come in a plastic zipper bag and run less than $10. I’ve noticed that those bags keep their cables neat and tidy, whereas mine are always getting caught around something in the trunk or the bottom of my bed box. Bucket Boss’s Jumper and Extension Cord Bag has my name on it.
