I redesigned my wall-mounted chisel holder so it protects the chisels’ cutting edges, but only requires minimal clearance above the handles.

In each chisel slot, I drilled a hole to accommodate a 14 "-diameter rare-earth magnet with a matching steel cup (Lee Valley Tools, no. 99K33.10, 800-871-8158, leevalley.com). When mounted to the wall, the magnets secure the chisels with the cutting edges protected, but the chisels lift out easily without interfering with any tools that are mounted above.
