I was looking at different drill/impact-driver storage methods bandied around on Instagram and Pinterest. They used all manner of building materials, so I came up with the simple idea of using some 1-in. by 2-in. rectangular steel tube I had kicking around. I cut the tube into 2-in. pieces and drilled a pair of clearance holes in the front of each so I could run screws through smaller holes drilled in the back. Then I screwed the tool holders to the wall of my shop. As shown in the drawing, the tool’s belt hook slips in with no fuss.
