View Full Version : Electrician Tool Belt

Anyone know of an electrician toolbelt that has at least a couple pockets that close up using velcro or snaps to keep the fasteners from pouring out?
Here's a style that I like, but I don't believe the fastener pockets close on top:

In all my years of searching I still haven't found the perfect belt. There have been some simple and great innovations like the handles sewn to the tops so you can pick up and carry your bags without dumping everything out.
But the wirenut pockets are too small and dont have a retaining system.
I did find some carpenters bags with deeper pouches but no dividers.
The search continues.

I have the ones in the pic. Occidental Leather Pro Commercial set. I LOVE them.
I have never found the need for a pouches that close. I guess IMO that would only get in the way.

I'm not worried about wirenuts and other stuff spilling out when I'm using the belt. It's just that I would like to be able to toss it in the back of my Jeep and not have the contents spill out when I go 4-wheeling up in the mountains here.
I don't have the money for a dedicated work truck, so I'm forced to take all my tools with me wherever I go.
I keep my toolbelt in a plastic tub-so if stuff spills out it stays in the tub. Cost of my belt and belt-tools over $350. And I have a spare fully loaded old belt.
