Gatorade Bottles
X-acto Knife

You need to find the right type of plastic bottle.
I used a gatorade bottle because I believe it's more heavy duty than any other plastic bottles that I've collected.

Step 2: Get to Cutting

You need to use the x-acto to cut off the mouth from the gatorade bottle.

Step 3: Get to Cutting Part 2

Use the x-acto again to cut two rectangles off the center of the bottle. They have to be around the size of the belt and be at lease half an inch away from each other.

I did this for to two gatorade bottles.

Step 4: Put It Together and Wear It!

Slip the belt into them. After that you could now put your tools in them.

Now you could wear it.
Have fun and be careful when using the X-acto knife.

Sweet to see this set up being use. Years ago I started in the residential framing, my first week at work did not have a bag setup, so I cutout the top section of a 1gal water container and stuffed it with 3"nails, everyone had a laugh about it for years,
Brought some nice memories,

What about using peanut butter jars and then you have a wide mouth and a screw top already? ( I eat alot of peanut butter-not much gatorade)

you can add a bottle that can close (like this one i did ) for stuff like nails and other smaller objects that might fall out

the belt is awesome, will be making one for myself.

Don't the tools fall out if you bend over?

you could probably make a hammer hanger from a gatorade bottle too, just cut around the neck of the gatorade bottle, and then up one side, cut the two belt loops and take off the bottom as well.
