Cordless Drill Storage Tips

A cordless drill is an essential, versatile tool that eases the work of contractors. The biggest struggle of contractors is not having secure storage to accommodate the cordless drill while working. Crucially, safe tool storage increases productivity and ensures safety. For contractors, effectively solving the issue of storing vital tools such as the cordless drill gives them peace of mind in the long run and amounts to long term gains in efficiency.

Why Do You Need Proper Storage for your Cordless Drill?

 Cordless Drill Storage Tips

One of the most important aspects of maintaining your cordless drill and other tools is to have a safe place for storage. The storage should protect the drill from damage, dust, and moisture, facilitate transport and protect against bumps and knocks. Cases are often provided by the manufacturers of drills that meet these specifications. Each case is also customized to suit the particular make and model of the drill, ensuring a snug fit. But what about when the drill is in use? How does one maintain safety and access simultaneously?

Many workers keep their tools in unsecured canvas holsters. This popular ‘solution’ resembles a gun holster that is supposed to prevent a drill from falling out by keeping it in place with an ordinary plastic clasp. The first issue with this drill storage is its accessibility - requiring two hands to unclasp and reclasp the drill. This is a hazard if workers need to maintain their balance while doing so. The second hazard here is that the standard pouch does not reclasp automatically. This leaves room for human error, particularly when the main focus is the job at hand.

How to Assure Safety and Security

The Gorilla Hook solves these issues by allowing single handed access. The drill is also resecured automatically using a spring loaded catch, keeping your drill safe and secure.

Another advantage of the Gorilla Hook is the ability to stay attached tightly to your belt or toolbelt. The hook has a reliable belt loop that surpasses the strength of other alternatives, making it impossible to detach from your belt. This feature of the Gorilla Hook boosts your efficiency as it shortens the time you would otherwise spend checking and adjusting the holster, as well as allowing instant access and replacement of your drill.

Simple, Strong and Effective

If the storage for your cordless drill is not strong enough, you risk it slipping off your belt and causing injury or property damage. The Gorilla Hook keeps power tools secured because of its streamlined modern design. The Gorilla Hook is made from reinforced plastic that is durable and will not become detached regardless of the movements involved for the job.

Common drill holsters combine plastic and canvas construction for this type of application and often result in broken clasps or torn canvas, leading to dropped tools and site hazards. Unlike these holsters, the Gorilla Hook is designed to offer strength, accessibility and flexibility of movement, ensuring that you can focus on the job at hand, rather than worrying about an ineffective tool holster.
