If you're looking for a quick and easy way to organize your power tools, Spartan Mounts tool holders are an excellent solution.

With options for most cordless drills, impact driver and other cordless tools, a Spartan Mounts drill holder is a great way to give easy access to your most used tools, even in small space.

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to build a DIY power tool storage rack using Spartan Mounts

Materials and Tools Needed:

  • Spartan Mounts tool holders
  • Measuring tape
  • Level
  • Drill
  • Drill Bits
  • Screws
  • Screwdriver
  • Pencil
  • Stud finder (Optional)
  • Miter Saw (Optional)

Step 1: Measure and Mark

Before you begin, determine the layout of your power tool storage rack. Use a measuring tape and pencil to mark the locations for each tool holder, making sure to leave enough space in between for each tool. You can easily attach Spartan Mounts to drywall or wood, but consider attaching to a back piece that offers organization for your hand tools as well, such as pegboard, slat wall or french cleat system.

Step 2: Mount the Tool Holders

Using a drill and screws, mount each tool holder to the wall, making sure to attach it to a stud. Use a level to ensure each tool holder is straight and even. Drilling pilot holes can help keep everything level.

Step 3: Install Your Power Tools

Once all the tool holders are mounted, you can begin adding tools to your tool wall. Simply slide each of your cordless power tools into its designated holder and ensure that it's secure.

Step 4 (Optional): Consider Adding a Top Shelf or Other Storage

Adding additional storage now can save you a lot of hassle later, especially in a small workshop. Consider storage for things like wood glue, wood screws, spray paint, plastic bags, gloves, and safety glasses.

Tips for Organizing Your DIY Power Tool Storage

Group Similar Tools Together:

Grouping similar tools together can make it easier to find what you need when you're working on a project. For example, you can create a section for all your saws, another for your drills and drivers, and another for your sanders.

Consider power requirements:

Even if all of your tools are battery powered, you may want to install a power strip near the bench for a battery charging station, lights, and different tools you may purchase in the future.

Use Labels:

Using labels can help you quickly identify which tools are where. You can use labels to identify specific tools or sections of the tool holders.

Arrange Tools by Frequency of Use:

Consider arranging your tools by how often you use them. For example, you can keep your most frequently used tools at eye level and within easy reach, while less frequently used tools can be stored on higher wall mounts.

Keep Safety in Mind:

Always keep safety in mind when organizing your tools on a cordless drill storage rack. Use cable ties to secure electrical wires. Store sharp or dangerous tools out of reach of children, and make sure everything is securely in place to prevent accidents.


Organizing your power tools doesn't have to be a hassle. With Spartan Mounts tool holders, you can quickly and easily create a customized power tool storage DIY that will make your workspace more efficient and organized. By following these simple steps and tips, you can keep your tools within reach and ready to use for your next project.
