Having a hard time finding a gift for Mom on Mother’s Day this year? Don’t get overwhelmed. Buying her a few tools could be just the gift she needs. Whether she is extremely crafty, loves DIY projects, or just wants to be independent with her quick fixes, she’s going to need the right tools to get the job done. Buying tools can be tricky, and if this is her first set of tools it is imperative that you get her tools that are as versatile as possible. Here are some “must have” tools for her Mother’s Day collection.
Locking Pliers maintain a tight grip while being pulled or rotated to remove broken bolts and screws. They’re good for holding parts still, removing frozen nuts, pulling a broken zipper closed, or cracking nuts to eat.
Ideal for driving nails into an object and removing nails from an object. The claw part of the hammer enables you to dig holes, tear down drywall, split wood, and break ice. They also make excellent measuring sticks.
Also known as a Ratchet. It is used to tighten or loosen nuts and bolts quickly by using separable sockets of variant sizes. A Ratchet allows you to stay connected to the bolt for every turn without needing to reposition it.
Ideal for working in cramped or small areas. It’s perfect for assisting with gripping, bending or gripping multiple wires, picking up small screws in tight places, and safely holding small nails in place for hammering.
