Lee Valley has started carrying a rather interesting tool storage system that consists of a tool board and repositional adapter pegs.
The tool boards are made from ABS plastic and measure 7-1/2″ x 11″. You can mount them to horizontal or vertical surfaces, such as the wall or your benchtop, and can also place them inside drawers and tool boxes. Each board has 450 1/4″ slots.
The recesses can fit standard 1/4″ hex screwdriver bits without needing any additional accessories, and optional adapters are made to fit 1/4″, 3/8″, and 1/2″ square drive sockets. You can also buy tool clips that are meant for holding tools such as screwdrivers and other small cylindrical hand tools.
There are ribs on the inside of each slot to ensure that screwdriver bits, adapters, and tools won’t wiggle loose as you move tools to and from the board.
Prices: $6.50 for each tool board, $3-4 for 12 socket adapters, $3.50 for 6 pairs of tool clips.
There is also a special 50-piece introductory kit option that comes with 2 tool boards and one pack of each accessory type, for $18.50. The special promo kit is available for purchase until September 1st, 2014 unless supplies run out sooner.

I have not seen anything like this before, and really appreciate the system’s simplicity and customization options. The tool boards and inserts are also attractively priced.
