    i purchased a toughbuilt Belt, braces and couple of pouches at the D-M tools show weekend.
    Very pleased with it, but also looked at toolstation for the toughbuilt drill holder pouch and my dewalt drill would be a pain to get in and out , of it - seems large does not mean large to toughbuilt , and the dewalt is the cheapest cordless drill they do , so not that big

    Seen these belt hooks suggested

    theres a video on youtube, of the guy dancing about

    Just wondered if anyone used and found useful?

    I'm just a diyer, and have on occasion tried to use the belt clip on the Drill and impact driver, but now i have a belt , thought I might get 2

    Thanks,
    The toughbuilt Large Drill holster
    https://www.toolstation.com/toughbuilt-large-drill-holster/p54039
    with the 7 series cordless dewalt drill
    https://www.toolstation.com/dewalt-dcd796-18v-xr-li-ion-cordless-brushless-combi-drill/p30986

    Just did not fit very well, and would be difficult getting in / out

    I went for the toughbuilt as it was modular , and used other belts that the pouches just slip around and even using some braces i found poor - so i thought as this was such a good deal at a tool show to invest in it

    any suggestions - I will be getting a 9 series drill in future

    Get a holster that you run your belt through, and about 8" or so on the belt, and this keeps it by your waist and hip and not flopping about and banging your leg every step.

    Then depending on your preference and other stuff on the belt, you and also position it more to your side or front.

    I've got a Stanley/fatmax leather holster, had it for years and its very comfortable. It did take a while to mould itself to me and to the drill though. But 18v drills are terrible in most holsters as they are too big and heavy. I'll only carry 10.8 tools in the holster, but a larger drill will fit but needs to be strapped in all the time else it tips out easily.

    thanks for all the information , i'll see how i get on and when i need one , interesting you say it moulds itself, perhaps the unit was too new and needs some time
