    Tool tube bag - flEaBay find

    I found this listing on the flEaBay and it’s an interesting idea. It’s a bag that fits into the “tool tube” so you can pull everything out when you need that small part that’s otherwise hiding in the bottom. $17 seems like its worth it, but no idea on its quality as I haven’t ordered one yet. Any thoughts or alternatives? (Yes it’s from Germany)https://m.ebay.com/itm/Tool-Tube-Wer....c100890.m2460

    I kept a length of soft aluminum wire with a 90 degree hook bend on both ends in my tool tube. Small stuff I could not reach was easily fished out with it.

    Be Decisive! Right or Wrong just make a decision. ​ The road of life is paved with flat squirrels that couldn't make a decision.

    Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

    Similar bags can be had for far less at Harbor Freight. You could even check out your local big box store and purchase an inexpensive "fanny pack". Leave the waist belt on and you can hang your tools nearby while in use or wear them around your waist or over a shoulder. Cut the waist belt off if you prefer. I see these all the time for $10 or $12 dollars.

    Looks good. I used a sock to put the tools in for easy tool tube retrieval. I don’t use a tool tube anymore but the tools are still in the sock on rear rack bag. I did add tire tools after a ride when I got a flat a few months back.

    Kris, I do the same. The sock can also be used as a rag. It also keeps the rattling to a minimum.

    I use a variety of little zipper bags in my tool tubes, typically fiber reinforced vynal make-up, school supply or bank deposit bags that are a good fit inside the tube. They all have a finite life when the tools start rattling around so I typically a wind tow rope around the bag, or stuff rope into tube after bag is inserted. Never had an issue removing the zippered bag(s).

    Staples sells a heavy duty bag about that size for pencils and stuff. I use a couple of them, and when stuffed full, they still fit in the tool tube. they sell for around $6

    An old sock is free, $6.00 is almost a pint of good beer. I'll stick with the sock and go have a beer.
