Magwear Magnetic Wristband | US$9.99 | www.fortisdesign.com
when carrying out a nailing job on the roof, the last thing you want is to have your nails rolling off to the ground level or having to repeatedly climb up and down just to retrieve what you need. there’s got to have a better solution than holding those nails in the mouth or pocket. without doubt, the former is hygienically unacceptable (and dangerous, to say the least) and the latter is not often as accessible when you are squatting on sloped surfaces. indeed there’s a solution and it’s called the Magwear Magnetic Wristband by Fortis Design. it features an adjustable velcro wristband with a tough plastic caddy attached to it. built into the unassuming plastic tray is a neodymium rare earth magnet that is strong enough to keep ferrous-metal made hardware, tools and fasteners immobile while in the tray and easily accessible right from your wrist. though you could choose to hang it off your belt bucket as well. of course, it is not only useful when working at height but it is equally suited when working under the cars, crawlspaces or just about any situation where dropping these tiny objects is not an option. well, anything that makes home improvement or work easier is always welcomed, and even more so when it cost just $9.99.
