Every long holiday weekend, I try to squeeze in a few overdue projects that always seem to get passed over during the normal weekends. As with most things that require assembly, there's the ritual of laying out all the different screws, tools etc... and then the common back-and-forth hassle of getting the next group, piece, screw, etc... Well, the MagWear magnetic wristband could become a "handy helper" the next time you could use an extra...uh.. hand.
A strong magnet holds down screws, nails, and even small tools and other magnetic objects. Perfect for when you're working on such places as a ladder, or in a crawlspace. It comes in several colors and is $19.95. Available here. (via the Real Simple 2007 gift guide)
