Default What do you do with your work gloves

So I have been putting up a lot of fences and crap lately. I never really have thought about it and shove my leather gloves in a back pocket. I keep ending up with one dang glove when itís time to work again.

Yíall use a glove holder or something?

Glove clips like these are what we use at work, at the lease I just put them in my pocket.

Tuck the cuff right up underneath the belt buckle and the will stay there as long as you need them to.

Always put them on the dash of the truck.
But if you buy two pairs at once, and loose one you will
Still have a pair

I buy two pairs at a time. Chunk them in the tool box after using them. I bet I have a dozen pair of mix and match gloves in there lol. Sorry if this doesn’t help OP, it’s just my habit

I put my mechanics style gloves in the side pocket in the bottom of the drivers door at all times. Every time I get in, they go there and when I get out they go back to my hands at the lease. I also use them and a set of channel locks for running coon traps at all the feedpens so they are both convenient there. My leather ones, when using, I'll throw up on the dash and grab as needed. Its rare that I need to go to yellow leather unless messing with barbwire or huisache. When not in use they go in storage bins below my back seat.

I leave them in my truck or side by side when not using and I still lose some every now and then somehow. If working and I donít need them on then I tuck them in my waistband and havenít lost any that way.

I don't really have and issue losing one. I have an issue with them no lasting. I have 3 or 4 Pair of the mechanics gloves (even the 40 bucks a pair set) and they all have holes

On my hands most of the time

Tucked onder a bar on the 4wheeler rack but occasionally have to backtrack and find 1 or both. When on the 4 wheeler I am looking every time I get on or off to make sure they are still where I put them

If you go this route, pull that rubber piece out of the middle and zip tie it. The. Get a carabiner so it doesn’t pull off of your pants.

If you don’t put a zip tie it just comes apart when you catch your gloves on something

Yeah, quit putting them in your back pocket.
If working around the house, I lay them on top of the cooler right at the front door. Itís the first thing I do when I leave the house or the last thing I do if going in the house.
If on the 4 wheeler, I lay them right in the middle of the handlebars.
If on the tractor, well, I never take them off unless I have to pee.

I donít do near as much manual labor as I did when I first met you, so now I refuse to use gloves when I do have to work with my hands. I hope I never lose calluses and cuts, nicks and scrapes. I hope thatís what my kids remember about my hands.

Hard to see the calluses and cuts when you are pointing your finger.

I was in a similar boat, pun intended. I never learned how to ski as a kid. I wanted to learn/was forced to learn after I was 40+. After a couple of times of trying to get up on skis, I realized my palm was hurting. I looked at my hand, saw some blood and raw skin, and realized the handle of the rope was held between my calluses on my palm and my wedding band on my finger. I ripped a 1/4 inch of flesh off my hand lol. I learned that day my hands arenít as tough as I thought they were lmao

Oddly enough thatís a chemical burn from some degreaser at our restaurant. I had some small cuts on my hand, was cleaning up some grease, thought oh I will spray this degreaser on there and it ate down like 3/16 of an inch where all those cuts were. Itís been a couple months now and thatís what it looks like. It was bad and it hurt. Iím sure I looked like a moron to all the kids as Iím frantically trying to get it to stop eating my skin and trying not to holler. One of them tells me later... dude thereís a big thing on there that says avoid skin contact. I told him well obviously I canít read.
