Description

    RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • This patent application claims priority under 35 U.S.C. section 119(e) to the co-pending U.S. Provisional Patent Application Ser. No. 61/133,057, filed Jun. 24, 2008, and entitled “MAGNETIC TOOL HOLDERS,” which is hereby incorporated by reference.
  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • This invention relates generally to magnetic tool holders. More particularly, the invention relates to a magnetic tool holder/holster device.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • Professional users of small hand tools such as carpenters, seamstresses, auto mechanics, electricians, plumbers, construction workers, as well as non-professional do-it-yourselfers are often frustrated whenever they misplace, drop or fumble tools or supplies while doing their jobs. Workers often times wear aprons or similar devices to hold these supplies to keep them close at hand and also to be able to move more freely. However, wearing an apron or similar device has certain limitations. For instance, repetitive reaching in pockets for supplies is tedious. Moreover, wearing an apron or similar device does not help the task of reaching for supplies while holding a perfectly aligned work piece or holding a heavy work piece with one hand and some tool with the other. Additionally, aprons and similar devices are prone to accidently spill the tools and work items that are held within the pockets of the apron or similar device. Often this spillage is caused because the worker accidently knocked the tools or work items over with their hands or because of how the worker is positioned while doing their job. Other times the contents will spill whenever the worker removes the pouch from his waist and puts it down.
