Transition to better tool organization

Looking for a way to store tape measures and other tools that have a belt or pocket clip, I came up with an inexpensive wall-mounted rack, made from a flooring transition strip, sometimes called a seam binder. Find this metal strip, with beveled edges, at home centers.

I mounted the strip to the wall with spacers behind it to provide clearance for the belt clips. Mount the strip with the flanges of the bevels facing out, so tools slide on and off easily.
