Not everyone has a garage workshop but everyone needs tools from time to time. Homes and cars need first aid kits just like people, and if you don’t have basic supplies to hand it can mean major inconvenience or expensive callouts.
Screwdrivers are a toolbox staple. In fact, it’s often a good idea to keep one in the cutlery draw, but somewhere in the house you should have a full set for all kinds of screws. Hanging an assortment of them the back of a cupboard door neither works well or looks good, so consider an attractive screwdriver rack. They are also better value when you buy a set. Some come with screw extractors, or you can buy them separately.
Wrenches are another thing best bought in a set. That guarantees that you will have the size you need and they come in a strong box that takes up almost no space. Other tools you have to buy individually, but you can still keep them safe and tidy in tool racks. Larger items, such as garden tools, are often organised in the garage or garden shed, hung off the floor on tool racks.
As with screwdrivers and wrenches, scissors come in all shapes and sizes. An alternative to a set of scissors might be our amazing 5-in-1 scissors. They can cut meat, card, plastic and even bone, so that’s another item you could keep in the cutlery draw!
Other crucial items we recommend include repair tapes, glue, extension cables and the amazingly handy and versatile bungee cords.
