Aprons and Accessories (26)
Look for carpenters aprons with several nail pockets, pencil and hammer holders, and pockets for measuring tapes. Expand protections with clothing and safety gear that includes jackets, coats, safety vests, and boots and socks for indoor and outdoor jobs.
Tool aprons provide convenient access to tapes, hammers, and other tools, as well as portability, so professionals can move around the job site. When tools are within easy reach at all times, you can grab the one you need for the task at hand, without having to move from the spot.
Many carpenter’s aprons are made of durable, heavy-duty material such as rugged and riveted leather or nylon. This allows them to support heavy loads, and to stand up to the rigours of construction zones. They also have pockets of varying sizes to accommodate specific tools such as tape measures. Open pockets or loops hold longer items like rulers and hammers. When pockets or compartments are spacious, retrieving tools is quicker and easier. Nail aprons are ideal for carrying small pieces of hardware such as screws or nails.
Carpenters aprons often have belts attached, making them adjustable for a comfortable fit. This also helps to keep the tool load balanced while walking and working. Others slide onto a separate belt. Some attached belts are padded for added comfort and stability. They fit comfortably, even when wearing coats and jackets for warmth or safety at the work site.
Most aprons are suitable for general contractors and other professionals, while others cater to specialists such as electricians. Choose a large carpenters apron to hold an array of tools at one time, or simply one or two individual pouches to secure a utility knife or a cell phone. A 20-pocket apron provides many places to hold tools and equipment. Another option is a tool holder that attaches to a pail which allows for carrying pliers and other tool accessories on the outside of a bucket.
Aprons aren’t limited to small hand tools. Large holsters support the weight of drills and other power tools. Some aprons and pouches feature zipper closures, keeping the contents of pockets secure at all times.
