"This thing is great," a five-star fan said. "I thought maybe it would turn out to be just a gimmicky thing that would just get in the way, but no. Working on a deck, installing railings — ton of crap I would need to dig around in my hoodie pockets for — now all neatly stuck to my wrist. Awesome."

"Every so often you need something like this. I ended up building a bench from Home Depot and it had all sort of bolts and nuts of different sizes. I didn't want to get out my full tool chest of Craftsman/SnapOn.. so I used this and wham! Done in no time flat!" a satisfied reviewer said. "This really does work and it didn't strip any of the bolts at all."
