The expression is "Hold the fort." It is shopkeeper slang for "take over for a minute or two" possibly dating from the European "discovery" of the world, when shops and forts …were the same thing, and holding the fort would mean not allowing the trading post to fall victim to hostile outsiders or to internal lawlessness. There is also the expression "hold down a job" meaning be employed regularly.

Hold down the fort does not exist except as an American bastardisation of the English phrase "Hold the Fort". The expression to 'hold the fort' relates to the military strategy of 'holding' a fort so that the enemy could not penetrate the city/castle. The 'fort/shop' connection is a pretty idea but not based on any kind of fact as the shopkeeper slang is no more relevant than any other profession asking for someone to look after its interests in their absence.
