3 Tools Everyone Should
Keep In Their Toolbox

Difficulty Rating – EASY

​Todd Maahs shares important tools for homeowners and DIYers to have in their toolbox. In this episode, Todd shares three tools everyone should keep in their toolbox.

Magnet Tray

Stainless steel magnet trays provide a great place for you to store nuts, bolts, screws, drill bits and more when working on a project. All of these small items have a tendency to wander off. The magnet tray keeps them in an easy to remember place.

Telescoping Magnet

Ideal for retrieving dropped metal items in hard-to-reach areas. The magnet extends up to 2 feet and retracts for easy storage.

Claw Pick-Up Tool

Another great tool to help pick up dropped items in tight spaces or for clearing clogs in pipes.
