Leather Beekeeper Tool Belt - Made in America
BeeKeeper Tool Belt. We make this tool belt with top quality materials and construction to serve professional beekeepers, but it also has great character and style for the backyard beekeeper. Full grain leather. Handmade in USA, in southern Indiana.
We are beekeepers and we’ve designed this beekeeper tool belt with input and advice from other local beekeepers. This tool belt comes standard with the pouch, hive tool holder, smoker holder, and a belt. Read farther down for optional additions
Our pouch has 4 pockets:
-2 pockets in front can hold queen bee tube and pens/pencils, etc.
-Middle pocket is wider to hold clamps and other tools.
-the back pocket is a slot for your cell phone and Field Notes.
The hive tool holder has a lower section that allows the tip of the tool to slip into place, to keep it secure. On top, it’s held in place by a sturdy magnet. These two features keep the tool safe but also allow the tool to come out easily.
The smoker holder has a thick piece of bridle leather backing to protect you from the heat. Our custom designed hook is handmade in a local Amish blacksmith shop. It’s securely mounted with rivets on the backing. The smoker can be hung by any part of the protective cage and slips onto the hook easily without needing to look.
It’s all hung on a 1.5” full grain leather belt with a stainless steel roller buckle that will stand up to years of use.

NOTE: All our tool belts are full grain leather (never suede or cheap, thin leather) and they are made in the classic style of having the rough side out, which allows for great longevity and also puts the smooth side of the leather on the interior for smooth usefulness. If you prefer to have the smooth side of the leather out, then let us know when you order. We'll be glad to do that for you.
ALSO NOTE: All pieces of this tool belt are done in brown leather but the pouch can also be made in black or dark green for an upgrade fee. If you'd prefer one of these other colors for the pouch, please let us know when you order.
BELT SIZE AND LENGTH
When you enter your pant size, here’s how we figure for belt length. Let’s use 32 as an example.
A 32 pant size usually needs a belt that’s 34-35 inches in actual inches. We then add an extra 2 inches so there is plenty of room in the belt for when it’s worn over layers of clothing. That makes the belt 37 actual inches from the buckle to the middle hole. We then punch holes for about 4 inches on either side of the middle hole. That gives a range of about 9 inches. So your size 32 order is labeled as 37 when it arrives to you, which is the actual inches.
OPTION: Add a leather name tag with initials or a short name for a personal touch.
OPTION: Add a bee brush holder.
If you have any questions or special requests about the belt length, please contact us.
