No go for me. But $5.37 for 3/8 and 1/2.

Anybody know if the holders can be changed so they are all on 1 side?

Even if they are able to be moved, there will still be a bulge on the underside preventing it from securely standing. I've seen this in-person. It's a terrible design. The ones they had prior were stainless steel, one-sided, magnetic, and were the absolute best design. I own one, and wish I bought several sets while I could have. RIP.

Absolutely they can. The ends are just capped with rubber boots.
Thanks for the info on the 3/8" & 1/2". The store I was at didn't have them.

Not true, I just attached all 12 sockets to the rail and there is no issue (single sided). The underside of the rail is separate from the socket attachment. It stands up fine without issue, no bulging. Picture added to initial post as reference.

I don't think this will work as well for the larger 3/8 and 1/2 versions. With a smaller trail and larger sockets you won't be able to get all of them on one side I think. Would be good for a portable box or bag I think.

Yes, absolutely they can be moved to the same side.
You can also mix and match the 3/8" and 1/2" holders with the 1/4" if you have socket sets that use multiple drive sizes (torx, hex, e-torx, bit sockets, etc.)
