I recently decided to put a new grille on my truck since my old grille was starting to peel and had a couple of cracks. My current apartment doesn't allow much room for storage so I have to manage our space the best as possible. I recently purchased a new Craftsman wrench set and really don't have a lot of room to store them but they are a must have tool to keep around so I came up with a way to store them while not spending a lot of money...if any.
Basically I am using the hex shaped grill insert to create a backing to store my tools on with a little human ingenuity.
Step 1: Remove Grille Insert
This step is simple, all you need to do is disassemble the plastic hex grille insert from the plastic chrome body. I used a large straight head screwdriver to pop all the little plastic clips that were holding it in place.
Step 2: Making the holding hooks
I used some nails I had lying around to create a clip/hook that I could use to hold my wrench set. I used a set of arc joint pliers as well as a set of needle nose pliers to bend the nails so that they could clip and hold onto the hex grille insert and also hold the wrenches.
This process took me a little bit of time but I just put on some King of the Hill and started bending nails.
Make sure that you find a nail that is long enough to be bent and still have enough surface area to hold your tools up. You may also want to do a few different bends to find out which way is the strongest.
