4 Ways to Improve Your Home During Quarantine
Regardless of the situation going on outside, one thing is for sure: during this time of staying in, being productive is important for your mind and body. Whether it's because that leaky sink is finally getting on your last nerve or you're eager to work on your next pet project like fixing an old car or decking out the man-cave, there are ways to make your life easier while getting to work. Here are some ways you can keep everything running smoothly!
1. Around the House
Before you get started fixing anything, you gotta make sure you've got everything you need to tackle the situation. If you're under the sink, heading into a crawl space, or putting together a new toy for the kids, it's important to keep these tools on hand:
Klein Tools Magnetic Screwdriver
Having a good screwdriver on hand is a necessity for any home, and this Klein Tools Magnetic Screwdriver makes it easy to attach any bit. Attach to the magnetic tip and you can put together any toy, cabinet, desk, or chair with the security of knowing your bit will stay securely attached to the screwdriver.
Another plus to this screwdriver is the shear amount of bits you get! From Hex to TORX bits, you get everything you need to tackle any project. And it comes with a handy carrying tray that stays with the screwdriver, so you'll never lose it.
Klarus HC3 Visor Clip
For every leaky faucet, troublesome pipe, and tight crawl space, you need a light that will leave your hands free to use. A light with a visor clip is a great solution to that problem. Clip it to the brim of a cap and you've got yourself a hands-free light that will shine enough to see all the work before you, but not enough to leave you blinded by its intensity.
This light has a 4500K color temperature, so not only is the beam itself warm in color, but it's also ideal for small, enclosed spaces. It also has a 180-degree rotation so you can adjust the light to hit exactly where you need it.
Klein Tools Lighted Torpedo Billet Level
Finally getting around to putting together that entertainment system or shelving unit? You have to make sure it's level. This level from Klein Tools uses a rare earth metal combined with LED lighting to easily show you the level vials even in dark conditions. Plus, it's super clear and easy to read thanks to large top-view vial windows.
2. In the Garage
Wanting to spiff up your garage or transform it into a true workshop? In addition to some hardwork and elbow grease, you'll want to have some trusty tools on hand. Here's what we recommend to have in your garage:
Olight Baton Pro Flashlight
If you're keene on getting some maintence done under the hood, you're obviously going to need a light that has enough power, but is also hands-free. No need to wrangle your kid into holding the light for you with the Olight Baton Pro. With a magnetic tailcap, all you have to do is stick it to the hood and you're set to go!
The compact size of this light is also a huge advantage. Easily use it to see between smaller bits and get a good angle on any part in your engine. This all thanks to a small 4.25" length of this high-powered 18650 light.
Striker TRiLIGHT Motion Activated Garage Light
Quit using the dim lights in your garage and get yourself a motion-activated and super bright garage light. Never worry again about fumbling for the light switch or blindly park in your garage without any light source.
Easy to install and capable of emitting a 3000 lumen output, the TRiLIGHT will keep your garage prestinely lit whether you're parking your car after the late night shift or burning the midnight oil repairing a flat tire.
Klein Tools 25' Tape Measure
It's always smart to keep a high-quality tape measure on hand or in your work bench. This one from Klein Tools is 25' long and has a double-sided hook with an embedded magnet allowing it to hold itself between doors, steel studs, panels, beams, and more.
What makes this tape measure stand out is it's 13-foot stand-out ability. This makes it super easy to do stand alone measuring from far distances without the aid of another person. Leaving you to work solo and without distraction.
3. For the Backyard
Got a lot of property to spare with no efficient way to light it up at night? Or looking to get some extra yard work done? Check out these recommendations:
With a super long-range throw of 1000 meters, the PR40 makes it easy see what's going on at the very edges of your property. Check out the perimeter or easily find your dog on his last jaunt in the yard before bed.
This light also doubles as an effective hunting light and takes both CR123A and 18650 batteries that make it last over 430 hours before a recharge. So you can use it for the long term.
UST SaberCut Chainsaw Pro
Got a couple of branches that need to be taken down? Try out the UST SaberCut. Unlike other saws, this one provides a flexible grip to get harder to reach branches and will fit snuggly in a compact carrying pouch.
Another perk of having a flexible saw is the ability to saw at any possible angle. Giving you yet another advantage when you start tackling yard work after a super heavy storm or other intense weather.
Striker Tough Skin Gloves
Looking to get some gardening done or other yard work? You're gonna need some good gloves. These ones from Striker prevent blisters and sores, while also allowing for a flexible grip. Great for moving around heavy equipment or ripping those weeds out of your precious tulip patch.
4. Makeover the Man-Cave
Finally. Now is the time to get the desired hang-out space you've been longing for. Get the perfect man-cave set up with these tools that are ready for the assist:
Streamlight Portable Scene Light
Any man-cave makeover starts with a fresh coat of paint and this scene light from Streamlight makes the job much easier. With a 72" extender - you can target specific spots on your wall that could be in need of some more TLC.
Plus, with an intense 3600 lumen output you'll clearly see if your paint job is even, dry, and spotless.
If you're looking to set up your ideal entertainment system, a USB splitter should be on your wishlist. It's great as a dedicated charging station for tablets and phones, or for getting your ideal computer setup.
This USB to AC power adapter can use all 5 charging bays at the same time. So no need to worry about overheating or overwhelming this high quality device.
Striker Multi-Point Illumination
Looking for something to spice up the lighting quality in your cave? The wait is over. The Striker Multi-Point system attaches to an already existing light fixture and turns it into a motion-activated light. Now you can just stroll into your prized cave and the lights will be on.
