I have seen all kinds of pliers organizer racks before, but this might be the first one I actually buy. This one is by Tekton, and it appears to be made in the USA by Ernst.
The Tekton pliers organizer rack has 10 slots, and measures 10″ wide with dividers 2.7″ tall and 3.7″ deep.
The pliers rack is made from ABS plastic, which should be tough but not brittle, and also easy to clean.
The base is made from a soft and grippy rubber material, to help ensure that your tools won’t slide around as you open and close your tool box drawers. Potentially, this could help the organizer rack from sliding around your drawer, and also your pliers from sliding around in the rack.
Here’s one of Ernst’s pliers racks, in high-visibility yellow. They also have a red pliers organizer that looks identical to Tekton’s. It might be made from a different material – Ernst’s listings say their self-branded racks are made from ABS plastic.
Ernst is a well-regarded name in the tool and parts organizational accessory industry, and they often produce products for other brand labels as well as their own.
At the time of this posting, the Tekton organizer rack is less expensive.
Price: $15 for Tekton, $16-17 for Ernst
Yes, you could cut up wire shelving and bend it into a pliers rack.
Or, you could do as I and toss them into a drawer. I like to have pliers flat in shallow tool box drawers, but not in deeper drawers as this can waste space. But, I think that this could be a very effective way to neatly and compactly store pliers in a tool box drawer ~3″ deep or slightly shallower.
One thing to keep in mind is that the pliers rack is 2.7″ tall. Depending on the pliers you place in it, you might need tool box drawers that are deeper than 3″.
This looks to be a very handy way to organize one’s tool box, save drawer space, or both.
Both the Tekton and Ernst-branded pliers racks are made in the USA.
Here’s another pliers rack that I discovered a few years ago:
