I need some help from those of you who have a set of Occidentals. I got a new set of 5191 today for Christmas and I need to know how to break these things in? I can barely get any of my tools in these pouches they are so tight!
Thanks for your help and Merry Christmas!!

The easiest answer is time. Otherwise some ball glove oil will loosen it up.
Hopefully over time they will form nice to me and my tools but my main concern is right now I cant even get my tape in the pouch

The tape holders are just tight.

I don't much care for the placement or function and I don't use it.

Nice set, you will figure out on your own how the tape holder works for you.

That tape holder will become loose enough it will be able to fall out on its own. Just give some time. They make it tight because if they didn't it would loosen up too much.

Dude that stuff smells horrible. I used to use it when my boots were new but they would reek for weeks. I had to keep them on my porch or in the basement after oiling them. I could smell the oil every time I kneeled down or climbed off a ladder. I'd does work great but the stink is too much for me. The second bottle I tried wasn't nearly as bad so maybe they have different kinds.
