Default Klien aerial apron

Can not post pics but sure someone knows what I'm talking about. Thinking it may help the knees and back on the scissor lift but wondering if I just dumped some dollars.

These: https://www.kleintools.com/catalog/l.../aerial-aprons

I don't like 'em.

Better off with an aerial bucket.

I use this when I’m living in a lift.
Big enough for carrying everything in and room for my coffee cup.
Just Zip Tie it to the guard rails.

I like the coffee cup part.
When I worked on base you could always find a coffee pot to hit up, but cups were a different story. I use to carry a cup on a flag clasp on my belt at all times.

Here's mine. I just like to keep as much junk on the outside of the bucket as possible.
I guess on a platform lift with more room it's a different story.

I'll shoot a picture on Monday, but I've been using a husky tote zip tied to a piece of shallow strut. I trimmed the edges of the strut so it fits the lift perfectly. Stanley makes this one https://www.acehardware.com/departme...E&gclsrc=aw.ds and it fits on the lift rails, but not tightly.

I still have one of them old school plastic cups with the snap lids in my truck. Don't have the flag clasp anymore.
Now a days it's hard to find a normal coffee pot on base. These kids all drink that Foo-Foo crap or energy drinks..

Yeah money in the toilet. No decent way to hang cordless tools still got to put them on the deck or hang on control box edge. Might get ambitious and bend up a little bracket to add on. Oh and Milwaukee if you are listening need a hanger on the M12 porta band!

There are a lot of ways to hang your tools on a scissors lift with a little ingenuity.



Before you get creative, look how the rails telescope when you extend and retract the platform. Attach your trash in such a manner that you don't make it rain tools.



Here's a PVC drill holster from https://www.finehomebuilding.com/201...er-for-ladders



You can use a drill holster and run a piece of 1/2" EMT through the belt loop. Rest the pipe across the rails near the front and attach with bailing wire. This works with any tool pouches pretty much.



The M12 bandsaw is easy to hang from a big S hook, you might have to customize one from Bed Bath and Beyond or etc., or make one from scratch any number of ways.

I always used an aerial bucket and a couple bolt bags.

Great idea with the plastic bin, those things are pretty versatile.


Seems like quite a few people have those oval Klein buckets, how do they hold up? I'm looking to set one up with my new pair of M12 drills for drilling/driving accessories. Seems like the outside pockets would get in the way, no? Leaning towards the Orange/white one.

I would stick with simple tool belt for a lift.
Hang it like a saddle on the lift if you don't want to wear it.
Build a lift part box out of scrap wood and bend EMT to hold it, beat it flat to be a able to fasten it, use old oil containers to hold items, cut the tops off and fill with this that and the other.
You can't have enough parts in your bags, cause we are sophisticated, so build a box.
Keep others the **** out from underneath you by keeping a box of washers and spill them when someone wants to be a idiot and stand under you.

This proves that you are never too old to learn something.... I LOVE THE DRILL HOLSTER IDEA!
