    Troubleshooting Pouch

    Hi all. Just want to share a tool pouch that I bought recently to use for troubleshooting. It's the perfect size for me and has several pockets for my tools. The brand is CLC and I liked it a lot except for one thing - it can't stay up by itself.

    I decided to think of something that can resolve the issue and came up with these. Now it is also protected from dirt whenever I lay it down anywhere and got a few more extra pockets too . Hope you like it guys.

    Thanks! I spray painted the pvc pipes flat black after I assembled them together. I got the bag online and then I actually saw it in our local Johnstone supply too, exactly the same kind. It was a fun little project and the pvc just cost me around $6.

    No stand...stands are for sissies.

    I have access on my tools a lot easier now when on the job though. To each his own I guess.

    Thumbs up tool pouch

    I think You did a great job! Sometimes just a little extra thought will make something better. CLC does make good products. With a few tweeks they could be even better.

    I think I am going to get one and steal your idea with the stand. I have a pouch that holds a lot of tools but most are not needed. This cuts it down to bare bones troubleshooting and I checked the price its like 30 bucs. Well worth it imo.

    I have one similiar, always fell down. Back to my veto hvac tech, which I like. I think I will rig up a stand for the clc and see how I like it. Nice job. Good idea.
