Allen wrenches keep sliding out.
« on: January 16, 2021, 06:42:36 PM »
I use Allen wrenchs all day, to the point I keep them in my pockets. Problem I have is they keep sliding out after so many insertion cycles. I am handy with paracord and was thinking of making a strap to go along the top. Anyone else encounter this and have a better solution?

Its annoying because if the keys had just a bit more resistance they wouldn't do this.

Not very similar perhaps but I have used shrink tubing to hold magnets on some Allen wrenches to keep them handy for adjusting other tools. I figure you wont need the magnets but some slightly rubbery shrink tube should increase friction with only a very slight increase in size. Might be worth trying?

I started doing it. Used orange tubing. Works great, looks decent, I don't misplace them anymore.

I owe you one.
