Using Holster Brands products

October 13, 2016

Holster brand products are handy portable storage pockets that stick to a surface ensuring that your materials are close to hand when needed.

Have you ever been in the middle of doing a crafting activity or a sewing activity and lost the item you were using? That happens to me all the time. There is nothing more frustrating than having to search for a pair of scissors, pins, glue sticks or pens. It is almost as if they have a mind of their own, knowing you need them and hiding. Recently  I have been trying out a couple of Holster Brands products and they have really been making life much simpler.

What are Holster Brands products?

Holster Brands products are simple silicon storage pockets  which make life easier in the home.  There are a variety of designs to meet different storage needs. The holsters can be stuck to any surface around the home which makes them an easy portable storage solution. This works because they are made from a specially formulated silicon which clings to non-porous smooth surfaces. Think marble, glass, wood and plastic. Once you have finished using the holster you simply peel it off and take it elsewhere.The holsters can also be worn in your belt if you need to carry tools around.

There are three types of holster brand product. The hot iron holster which is designed for use with hair straighteners, the hobby holster which is for crafting and other projects and the Lil’ Holster which is for miscellaneous storage. All the products are designed to be heat resistant. The hot iron holster is resistant to 500F, the hobby holster to 400F and the Lil’ Holster to 250F. It is a good way of storing materials safely and protecting yourself from burns. The hobby holster can be used with glue guns.

How did I use the Holster Brand Products?

The question should be how did I not use these Holster Brand products? They were really handy and I found lots of different uses for them. One thing we are always losing in our house are the TV remotes. Adding a holster to the side of the coffee table soon resolved this problem. The remotes sit in it nicely and are always returned to the same place. It saves hours hunting for them.

Another brilliant use I found for the Holster products was for keeping my sewing stuff in. I am not keen on sewing but every so often I need to take school trousers up or sew on buttons. When I do this I always find that the pins and scissors disappear. Putting them into a holster meant they were easy to find and grab hold of. It made things much simpler.  The Hobby Holster also has a handy measuring tape on the side which is very useful when you are sewing.

These products would also be great for holding sponges and brushes in near the sink. They have drainage holes in the bottom so the water can drain out and can be kept at the side of the sink for easy access. Stick them at the side of a desk and they make great pen holders.  They stick well to the surface and are convenient to use.  Would you use a Holster brand product in your home? What would you use it for? Let me know below.
