This Elastic DIY Tool Holder Keeps Everything You Need Close at Hand
It doesn’t take a lot of hardware to make this flexible tool holder. A piece of wood trim, elastic cord, and heavy rope. That’s all. It’s simple, effective, and works great with the perforated board system for organization and accessibility.
The DIY network has all the step-by-step instructions for this project (link is given below), but it’s very simple whether you have perforated board support or not. Simply drill a few small holes in the scrap wood, thread the elastic cord through them, and flatten them to the empty space with a small twine or heavy rope to keep them in place. Check the elasticity of the spaces between the holes to make sure you have enough room to attach and remove the instruments, and when you’re done, secure the whole thing neatly and tightly. That’s all.
Since it’s all anchored to wood, you can attach the wood covering directly to your garage or workshop wall, or if you’re using a perforated cardboard backing like the one in the photo above, you can use a few more sturdy ones (or a pair of metal hooks or screws). to secure it to the perforated board. However you install it, make sure it can support the weight of the tools you have and you should be fine. At the end of the day, you will have tools to retrieve and replace, as well as a cluttered bag or drawer.
