Introduction: Screwdriver Rope Sling

Picture of Screwdriver Rope Sling

Whenever I am working in the top of our barn or on top of it, I've wished I could hang my drill motor from my belt instead of looking for a place to set it and keep it from falling. So I came up with this idea. I'm not saying this is completely my idea because I might have heard it some wheres else. Anyhow I'm thought this might give you some ideas.

Step 1: Tools

Your need:
1. scissors
2. matches or a lighter

Step 2: Required Elements

Some paracord, a carbineer and of course your drill motor.

Step 3: The Sling

The length is up to you but mine was about 2 feet long. Start a square knot but before you tighten it hook your carbineer though the middle, then tighten it hard.
Next ,take and cut of the extra. Do it one at a time to keep it from undoing itself. Take your matches and melt the ends to keep them there.

Step 4: Wrap Up

Wrap it around and then slip it though its self and pull it tight.

Step 5: Finished!

From the photos you can see I made two versions if it. Of course the length is up to you.
Let me know what you think!
If you can think of a better name for this let me know!!!!!!!

Much better than what I did! I was distracted by the loop provided in the body of the drill and so made a tape loop to go through it. It takes too long to remove when it is in the way. Your paracord loop hitched round the handle is a much more convenient and simpler solution.

Very nice, and well documented. Many people in high places - including astronauts - use various types of tethers for their tools. One correction, though. The clip you called a "carbine" is actually called a "carabiner". (A carbine is a type of rifle.)

thank you very much. And thanks for catching that. I'll fix that.
