Instead of weaving our belts through this Tabor holster we just clipped it on our pockets (blue jeans & sweat pants' pockets). My husband was very impressed that his pruners never fell out of the Tabor holster while he was working all around our sloped 1+ acre yard. In the past my husband has stuck his pruner in his back pocket which wears holes in his jean's pocket.
In addition, via the holster our pruners were always handy & we didn't have to waste time trying to remember where we used them last nor did we have to waste time hiking our little acre to retrieve them. "

Also, they store as one (one against the other) and they have a hole that can be used to hang on a hook."
