Home repair and the inevitable re-repair are deeply-personal trials by trade, testing a man’s focus, resolve, and ability to operate under the duress of awkwardly contorted positions.
It’s an physically and emotionally draining effort that may take months of planning and hours of intense labor with little to show but a slightly-functioning product and a sense of unparalleled pride.
Basically, home repair is the closest a man can get to giving birth in this world.
We can’t prevent that infuriating fifth trip to the hardware store, but we can curate a collection of quick fix tools so enticing that “finally getting around to” a household project will no longer be a problem.
The Magnogrip Drill Holster and Wristband harnesses the mysterious black magic of magnetism to keep drill bits, screws, and small tools easily accessible on the hip and wrist. The holster is perfect for cordless drill quickdraws, and the wrist strap can be slapped onto the side of a ladder or refrigerator for hands-free handiness.
We wouldn’t bring a Phillips screwdriver to a dark-alley flathead fight; we’d bring the Sheffield 4-in-1 Lighted Screwdriver, a battery-powered flashlight with four interchangeable heads. And speaking of dark-alley fights we definitely don’t condone, the Sheffield Folding Utility Knife slices and dices, then stows easily into a pocket without risk of the slicing and dicing continuing.
For cleanup, the least fun yet most fulfilling step in the repair process, we’re supplying a bar of Lava Soap and a pack of shop towels. They’re conveniently the same color as the blood one might want to discreetly hide after one embarrassingly injures oneself with a tool one claims to “totally know how to use.” Hypothetically speaking.
The Pro-Tool Crate is the helping hand any home handyman would be more than willing to receive.
In a sealed wooden crate with a laser-etched crowbar. No bow, no ribbons, no fluff, and absolutely no instructions.

I gave these as a Christmas gift to each of the guys I work for. Since I wouldn't be there when they opened them, I told them they had to either video or take pictures (I wanted to create some suspense and curiousity). When we were all back in the office, they couldn't stop talking about the presentation and the contents. They loved the knife and used it right away to break down Christmas boxes. They loved it! I was so happy. Thanks for a unique and wonderful gift. I'll be ordering more for the guys in my family.

I received this as a Christmas gift. My wife spent over $150 on two gifts. The two of them have way less value inside than that. I received this "Man" Crate. It's not necessarily made for the working man, more like the city man who doesn't normally wrap his hand around real tools. My wife was really excited for me to open. It was hard to say I like it with a straight face to be honest. I would have rather had a AR-15 lower to build my own rifle...now that is man stuff. I thought I'd leave an honest review because the other reviews are left by the buyers, not the receivers.

This is the second time I've ordered from you. I bought this as a birthday gift for my son. Pictured is a small drill with the holster, this is the main reason I ordered this, for the drill, the rest was a nice extra. I paid $94 for a screwdriver, soap and some rags. He is in NY and I'm in Texas. I'm really not pleased with the purchase of a hundred dollar screwdriver .

I was out of the country for my boyfriends birthday and sent him the Pro Tool crate and a man kit. He was beyond esthetic and said it was by far the best gift he has ever gotten. He said everything in the crate was great quality and just what he needed. The crate is harder to open than it looks he said...which I think is great because then they have to try extra hard! The whole point of the MAN crate ;)

My daughter and I got our guys one for Father's Day. It was a hit and so much fun watching them work to the point of frustration trying to get the crates open and the results of very nice goodies inside. Will definitely buy more.
