I’m ready to order some Ernst socket organizers for my shop chest and thought I would ask here first.
They make 2 types twist lock and a HD non twist version. For those with one version or the other. Do you like them? Do the sockets stay on the non twist version well? Does the non twist version require 2 hands to get the socket off of the rail? And any other general thoughts would be appreciated.

I went with the ares magnetic socket holders. Probably cost more to do so, but i like them. You can take the whole tray out and they stay put, you can get them with one hand.

+1 This. Have them and love them, SAE and metric in all sizes, 6 total. Magnets work great with easy release yet sockets never fall out. Quality item, buy once and they will last.
