Keeping track of tools is made easier with fuel line and cable ties.
A tire inflator and an air blower for my compressor are must-haves on the job, but keeping track of them so I have them when I need them is a struggle. Here’s my solution. I use a few inches of 5/16-in.-diameter rubber fuel line that I slip over the air fittings on the two tools to hold them. A slit in the center of the fuel line allows me to zip-tie the whole thing to my compressor frame. The short length of fuel line keeps the two tools right where I need them, without them rattling or falling off the compressor.
