How To - Leatherman Tailgate Mount

Never be without your leatherman

I'm a big fan of always having a multi-tool with me, be it a Leatherman or otherwise. If you have one lying around, here is a 2 minute, DIY mod that'll cost you about 5 cents, not take up any (usable) room in the Jeep, and keep the Leatherman with you on every adventure.

Materials & Supplies

  • A leatherman with carrying case
  • Three regular size zip ties
  • Wire cutters


Step 1: feed zip ties through slots in tailgate

Step 2: feed zip ties through carrying case

Step 3: tighten them down

Step 4: snip off the excess

Step 5: put leatherman back in

Final Product

Scott's Review Down the Road

I love this mod. It's fast, cheap, and adds real value to the Jeep. Keeps the leatherman out of the way, using space in the Jeep that nothing else would fit into. I've had mine on for over a year without issue and I can't tell you how many times it's come in handy.

Also works great to hold a harmonica!
