My set is laid out differently that this picture, but I believe they are still the same. For less than $100 you get a great set. I especially like how it has the multiple size socket wrenches. Only issue I've had is that the sockets are held in there really tight. This is, of course, a good thing since it prevents them from falling out while closed up. However, it also makes it somewhat difficult to get them out. This really isn't a problem since as you use it more and more, it seems to loosen up a bit.

Kidde FA110 Multi Purpose Fire Extinguisher 1A10BC

Kidde Multi Purpose Fire Extinguisher Multi-purpose Disposable Dry Chemical 2.5 lb Extinguisher Easy to read gauge shows the extinguisher's charge level UL Rated 1-A, 10-B:C Clear Instruction Label - Easy-to-pull safety pin Coast Guard (U.S.C.G) DOT approved Powder coated cylinder for corrosion protection The Kidde FA110 Multipurpose Fire Extinguisher is UL rated 1-A:10-B:C, and it is designed to fight basic fires common to the home, including those involving fabrics, plastics, wood, flammable liquids, and electrical equipment. It is fitted with an easy-to-read pressure gauge that tells you the fire extinguisher is charged. A clear instruction label clearly shows the steps required to operate the extinguisher. Multipurpose Protection for Your Family and Home This fire extinguisher contains a multipurpose agent that fights Class A, Class B, and Class C fires. Class A fires involve common combustibles, such as wood, paper, cloth, rubber, trash, and plastics. Class B fires involve flammable liquids, solvents, oil, gasoline, paints, lacquers, and other oil-based products. Class C fires involve energized electrical equipment, such as wiring, controls, motors, machinery, and appliances. Recommended by Fire Experts for Proven Protection The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends at least one primary protection fire extinguisher for each level of the home. A primary protection fire extinguisher should have a fairly large capacity and must be UL Rated 2-A:10-B:C or higher. In addition to your primary protection, you should also have UL rated supplementary protection fire extinguishers for additional protection or specific hazards. You should not have to travel more than 40 feet to reach an extinguisher. After ensuring you have enough primary protection fire extinguishers, place 1-A:10-B:C rated multipurpose fire extinguishers as needed for supplementary protection in bedrooms and living areas. This supplementary protection fire extinguisher meets the recommendations and needs of: The National Fire Protection Association: the NFPA 10 Standard for Fire Extinguishers Underwriters Laboratories (UL): the independent testing lab for fire safety products Professionals: for more than 90 years, industry leaders, the military, airlines, and firefighters have relied on Kidde fire extinguishers The Right Solution for an Emergency Situation In an emergency situation, you need a proven technology: a UL-rated fire extinguisher with a handle, a visible pressure gauge, and enough size and capacity to put out a common fire. These features are what makes a fire extinguisher the tool of choice for true fire suppression. Many aerosol can fire products may not be as reliable for fire protection, because they have a short shelf life (only three years in many cases), they do not provide a gauge to verify readiness, and they aren't UL rated. If you are able to react to a small fire when it starts, chances are good that you can stop the fire with the right type of fire extinguisher. Always make sure your extinguisher is pressurized and close at hand for emergency use. Built to Last and Easy to Use This Kidde Fire Extinguisher is durable and easy to use. The fire extinguisher is warranted for six years, and its metal pressure gauge helps ensure that the fire extinguisher is charged and ready for use. This extinguisher is durable and corrosion resistant, featuring a rust- and impact-resistant nylon handle and a light-but -durable aluminum cylinder. The sure-grip handle and operating lever make the extinguisher less likely to slip from wet or oily hands and easier to operate for people with arthritis or weakness of the fingers. A large bilingual nameplate on the extinguisher provides easy-to-read instructions for use during a fire. About Kidde: A UTC Fire & Security Brand Renowned for global leadership in fire detection and suppression, Kidde provides solutions ranging from portable fire extinguishers to advanced industrial controls, such as flame detection and explosion suppression systems. Kidde is a UTC Fire & Security brand, with a history that's rich with innovations, from the patent of the Chubb Detector Lock in 1818 to the development of the world's first wireless networked smoke detectors in 2004.

Grill Daddy Grill Cleaning Tool

Grill Daddy Grill Cleaning Tool uses the power of steam to clean tough baked on food and grease as you brush Stainless steel bristles for durability but safe for steel, cast iron, or porcelain grills Specially designed stainless steel bristles clean in between grill grates and surfaces Built to last, the only grill cleaning you tool you will need Removable brush attachment for easy dishwasher cleaning My wife is always looking for ways to make me more helpful around the house. She knows I hate to clean the grill even though I use it a lot. I got tired of buying steel brushes to clean the grill and have them all gummed up in a few weeks. She bought me the Grill Daddy and I finally got around to trying it and it works pretty good. You have to turn the grill on high and you load the Grill Daddy with about a cup of water and you go to work. The water on the hot grill turns to steam and it got my grill looking like new. Now, it didn't help me with all the other cleaning that I had to do on my Webber gas grill. I still have to spend a Saturday afternoon taking care of all that is below the grill. However, I know I can get the grill clean in a relatively short period of time. I only used it once and I know it came with an extra set of brushes but I don't think that these brushes will gum up all that soon. (Especially since I don't clean the grill that often). However, I couldn't help but see all the gunk on the grill fall away into the drop pan rather than sticking to the brush.

Wagan EL9796 Easy Quick Jumper In-Car Jumpstarter

Wagan EL9796 Easy Quick Jumper In-Car Jumpstarter Charges batteries by connecting cigarette lighter to cigarette lighter Works with all 12-volt automobile vehicles (standard voltage) Charges a weak battery in 5 to 10 minutes Green LED light glows when the battery is recharged eliminating guesswork Extra-long 18-foot power cord makes it easy to reach from car to car Jump-starting a car using standard jumper cables can be nerve-racking. You have to pop the hood, deal with the battery connections, untangle the cables. Plus, it's so easy to doubt yourself. Red is positive, right? Wait, or is it black? Well, thanks to Wagan's new Easy Quick Jumper, the process just got easier. This clever new gadget recharges a weak battery via cigarette lighters. Just plug one end of the Easy Quick Jumper into the cigarette lighter of the dead car, then plug the other end into the donor car's lighter, wait 5 to 10 minutes, and when the green LED light turns on, the battery is ready to go. That's it. You don't even have to open the hood. The Easy Quick Jumper has an 18-foot power cord, too, so reach isn't an issue. The system works with all automobiles that have 12-volt electrical systems, the vast majority of cars on the road. If you're not sure about you car's voltage, check your owner's manual.

DEWALT 20-Volt MAX Li-Ion 3.0 Ah Hammer Drill and Impact Driver Combo Kit

DEWALT DCK290L2 20-Volt MAX Li-Ion 3.0 Ah Hammer Drill and Impact Driver Combo Kit

Get Your DEWALT DCK290L2 20-Volt MAX Li-Ion 3.0 Ah Hammer Drill and Impact Driver Combo Kit at Amazon

  • 20V Max lithium ion batteries offer longer tool run time and enhanced durability
  • Patented 3-speed all-metal transmission matches the tool to task for fast application speeds
  • Impact driver has a compact (5.55 inches front to back), lightweight (2.8 pounds), design to fit into tight areas
  • Three LED lights with 20 second delay after trigger release provide visibility without shadows
  • Powered by an Energy Star qualified charger for a better environment

DEWALT’S DCK290L2 20-volt max lithium-ion premium 3.0 Ah hammer drill and impact driver combo kit combines the fast performance of the DCD985 1/2-inch hammer drill and the compact power of the DCF885 1/4-inch impact driver to provide a well-rounded pair of tools that help everyone from steel stud framers and contractors to cabinetmakers and plumbers work their way through a variety of applications.

Strength Defies Size
DEWALT has optimized both of these tools to withstand daily jobsite wear and tear. The 1/2-inch hammer drill’s high-power, high-efficiency motor delivers 535 unit watts out for superior performance in light and medium drilling applications. A 1/2-inch ratcheting chuck with carbide inserts provides superior bit-gripping strength—reducing slippage during high-torque applications—thus providing longer tool life. The hammer drill/driver’s patented three-speed (0-575; 0-1,350; and 0-2,000 RPM), all-metal transmission allows users to select the appropriate speed for the job at hand and is up to 30 percent faster than current hammer drill/drivers on the market. Meanwhile, the impact driver’s robust motor delivers 2,800 RPM—up to 43 percent faster than current impact drivers on the market. Its one-handed loading 1/4-inch hex chuck accepts and holds 1-inch bit tips for convenient fastening in tight spaces. Research shows that impact drivers are growing in popularity largely because of their smaller size and lack of kickback (or reactionary torque) thanks to the impact mechanism within the tool. Combined with its 5.55-inch length and 3.4-pound weight, the premium impact driver packs a serious punch in a small package.

Endurance and Ease of Use
DEWALT-designed electronics have been built into both tools’ switches to provide maximum life for the tools and batteries by helping to protect them from overheating, overloading, and deep discharge during use. The 20-volt’s lithium-ion batteries provide up to 35 percent more runtime than existing 18-volt lithium-ion battery technology, and the included Energy Star-qualified charger has dual voltage capabilities and it is compatible with both 12-volt max and 20-volt max DEWALT lithium-ion batteries. The tools’ slim handles fit easily into users’ hands, increasing the level of comfort during the course of long jobs, and the bright built-in LED work lights above the triggers have a 20-second delay that improves visibility in dimly lit spaces.

About DEWALT's 20-Volt Max Lithium-Ion Tools
DEWALT’s line of 20-volt max lithium-ion tools features improvements in engineering and design to provide the performance, the ergonomics, and the innovation that contractors require. The new line consists of 11 tools, two lithium ion batteries, and two battery chargers, as well as a number of combo kits.

Denali 115-Piece Home Repair Tool Kit

Get the Denali 115-Piece Home Repair Tool Kit at

Every home needs a good set of basic tools, and kits are a great way to get them at a considerable savings. Three things make Denali’s 115-piece kit stand out—the price, an exceptional selection of screwdriver bits, and last but not least, the bag. In fact, it’s hard to find a set of tools as extensive as this for anywhere near this price. If purchased separately, these items would cost $150.00

This kit includes all of the tools you need for just about any household chore, from hanging pictures to fixing a leaky faucet. They are of good quality and should handle all of your household chores and repairs for many years to come. Going through this kit, I really appreciated little touches rarely seen in basic tool sets, like the soft-grip rubber cover on the tape measure that makes it easy and comfortable to hold, and the dizzying array of bits that come with the ratcheting screwdriver handle.

But what’s really brilliant is that all of these tools come in a heavy-duty nylon bag. Most tool sets come in big, flat blow-molded cases that can be awkward to store and carry. Plus, some tools invariably fall out when you open the case. That’s why most professionals, after buying a tool set, will throw away the case it came in and go out and buy a separate tool bag or chest to store their tools. The Denali kit’s bag fits easily under a sink cabinet (it actually is the size of a breadbox), and has both a shoulder strap and hand-straps that Velcro together, making it easy to carry around. The mouth of the bag has metal stabilizing rods in the zipper, so it opens wide and stays open, meaning you can set it down, and easily get to any of the tools inside while you are working. There are a ton of pockets lining the inside and outside of the bag to carry little things like nails, screws, tape, picture hangers—all of the little things that seem to crowd your kitchen drawers.

Of course, what are most important are the tools themselves. Again, this is a well-appointed set of quality tools that should outfit you for just about any household need. Here is a complete tally:

What’s In The Bag

This 16-ounce ripping hammer with heavy duty fiberglass handle is a medium-weight hammer that will handle most household jobs, with claws for pulling nails.

Torpedo level
A good sturdy level is a must for hanging or straightening pictures, checking tabletop alignment, or mounting towel bars and curtain rods. This 9-inch, aluminum model is accurate, lightweight and easy to handle.

Tape measure
The 3/4-inch wide by 16-foot long tape measure has a thumb lock, metric and English markings, marks for placing studs every 16-inches, a belt clip, and a soft-grip rubber shell that makes it easy to grip and comfortable to hold.

Heavy-duty zinc utility knife with rubber grip


16-piece hex key set
These are also called Allen wrenches. The kit comes with 8 in metric and 8 in English measurements.
6-piece combination wrench set with steel clip


8-inch needle- nose pliers with wire-cutting blades, useful for getting into small spaces and gripping small nails, screws, nuts, etc. (meets or exceeds ANSI standards)
8-inch diagonal pliers (meets or exceeds ANSI standards)
8-inch groove-joint pliers(meets or exceeds ANSI standards)
7-inch nickel-coated locking pliers are essential for getting a good, solid grip, especially when working in small spaces that don’t allow you to grip with your full strength.
wire cutters

Wow, you’d never imagine needing a star-drive screwdriver, until you buy that fancy new European dishwasher. Denali’s kit includes a ratcheting handle with a selection of interchangeable bits to provide an exceptional array of screwdrivers in all sizes and head shapes. The ratcheting handle is a nice feature, making it a lot easier to drive screws that are upside down or in tough to see places, where you really don’t want release pressure on the screwdriver handle to keep turning it.

14 flat head: 4, 5, 6, and 7 mm and 3/32-, 1/8-, 5/32-, 3/16- (x3), 7/32-, and 1/4- (x3) inch
9 Phillips head: 1x2, 2x5, and 3x2
3 square head: S1, S2, and S3
10 star head: T6, T7, T8, T10, T15, T20, T25, T27, T30, and T40
10 hex: 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 mm and 1/8-, 5/32-, 3/16-, 7/32-, and 1/4-inch
4 Pozidriv: PZ0, PZ1, PZ2, and PZ3
Poszidriv screws are similar to Phillips head screws, but are less prone to slippage at high torque and so provide better performance when working with air and power tools. Note that Pozidriv screwdrivers are likely to slip or tear out the screw head when used in Phillips screws.
14 nut drivers

Drill Bits
This is interesting, since the kit doesn’t come with a drill. The manufacturers apparently assume that either you have a cordless drill and will appreciate a couple of good bit sets, or that if you don’t have one, you should get one. They’re right. If you don’t have a good, basic, cordless drill, you’ll appreciate it when you do. Check out Amazon's selection of cordless drills.

13-piece titanium-coated high-speed steel with steel case: 1/4-, 15/64-, 7/32-, 13/64-, 3/16-, 11/64-, 5/32-, 9/64-, 1/8-, 7/64-, 3/32-, 5/64-, and 1/16-inch
50-piece chrome vanadium steel 1-inch screwdriver bit set can be used with either a cordless drill or the ratcheting screwdriver included in this kit.
5-piece masonry bit set with steel case: 5/32-, 3/16-, 1/4-, 5/16-, and 3/8-inch
