The Framer R is a rear worn tool belt (tape measure at the back) with practical features for jobs ranging from concrete work to finish carpentry. Standard features include a stick nail sheath, hideaway hook, suspender mounts, rafter square slot, two diagonal bar sleeves, and more. Choose your preferred outer bags to complete your ideal rear worn Framer. Read the “Details” section for a full list of features.


Note: For those with a pant size 36 and larger, the bags on the Framer R sit further behind you than at your sides. The Framer R is 25″ long from the outside edge of left side bag to the outside edge of the right side bag. You can mark a rope or use a tape measure to wrap it around your back and see where the front edges of the bags will end.
