    You’re probably familiar with Senco products from their dependable, high-quality tools. What you didn't know was that 80% of their fasteners are made in the USA. The steel rod they use is sourced domestically; it even arrives via barge on the Ohio River. From wire cutting to packaging, every step of that production happens in their Cincinnati facility. Watch the video on Senco's fastener production.

  • Occidental Leather: Uncompromisingly USA Made

    Since 1980, Occidental Leather products have set the quality standard in the tool belt industry. With a selection of beautifully made tool belts, tool bags and tool belt suspenders, all made here in the USA, it's no wonder Occidental products are synonymous with quality. This Sonoma County, California-based company has been perfecting their handcrafted premium tool holders for nearly 40 years.

    You will not find Occidental Leather at any store, as the company only allows select vendors to carry their premium products. Needless to say, we’re especially proud to stand among the best, now offering Occidental Leather products on Nail Gun Depot.

    Made to Last

    At Occidental Leather, combining 19th century craftsmanship with 21st century manufacturing techniques has resulted in exceptionally high quality tool holders and bags noted for their durability and efficient design. The company uses top-grain cowhide and abrasion-resistant, industrial-grade nylon, all reinforced with copper rivets. Leather tool bags are made from 7-8 oz leather, while tool belts are made from 12-15 oz leather. The belts themselves are made of American bridle leather (used for reins and harnesses), stitched with heavy-gauge thread and fitted with a solid brass buckle and nickel-plated steel roller.

    Using materials designed to take abuse and withstand the elements, Occidental Leather stands behind their products. They not only offer a two-year warranty against material defects and faults in craftsmanship, but will repair leather tool bags (stitching and rivets) for life. Check out this video to get a behind-the-scenes look at Occidental.

    One Size Doesn’t Fit All

    Electricians, carpenters, concrete workers and other tradesmen find their Oxy tool belts last for decades. But it’s not just their longevity that makes them special. These items are made by professionals FOR professionals, so there’s a lot of thought behind their design. And these aren’t one-size-fits-all belts. Their popular HD Ranger Work Belt comes in Small through XXX-L.

    Taking the notion of flexibility even further, there’s the leather and nylon combo Adjust-to-Fit Belt, which expands to accommodate changes in waist size. To see it in action, click on the “Videos” tab beside the Adjust-to-Fit's product description.

    Intuitive, Hand-Specific Design

    Oxy belts are intuitively designed to be hand-specific, so the tool bag on the belt, for instance, is conveniently situated on the right side, while the fastener bag is on the left, where you’re most likely to grab the contents. And for lefties, there are hand-specific versions made just for you.


    The Stronghold Lights tool belt suspenders are genius. Simply slide your 3” tool belt through the detachable loops, redistributing weight from hips and back, for a more comfortable (and less cumbersome) workday. The Stronghold Beltless Suspension System doesn’t even require a belt for use, should you prefer that carrying style.

    If You Had a Hammer

    How about a hammer to go with the belt? Whether you're fond of wood handle hammers, or prefer the balance titanium provides, we now have a Martinez hammer to suit. Some insist one offers better driving power, energy efficiency or safety over the other. Either way, these hammers feature all-steel heads that are easily removable in the field.

    Martinez Hammer Logo

    The 4100 Series M1 Titanium Hammer has a higher kinetic energy than the famous Stiletto TiBone, both created by Mark Martinez. Martinez M1 Titanium and Curved Wood Handle hammers can be found with Occidental Leather products on Nail Gun Depot.

    For the cost efficient carpenter, each wood handle hammer has a long T-bolt that secures the head, as opposed to wedges typical of wood hammers. The head is also forward-weighted, giving it the same driving force as a titanium-handled hammer.
