Each of the clips consists of two opposite jaws, one of the jaws is equipped with an elastic piece to press on the wrench, and thus the wrench is retained between the jaws stably. The sliding board connects in sliding with the rack, and a plurality of positioning hooks are provided on one side of the sliding board in parallel, the positioning hooks can grip wrenches by sliding with the sliding board, so as to prevent the wrench from taking out. The lock piece can lock the sliding board on the rack when the positioning hook locks the wrench.
