These nonflammable noncorrosive stainless steel cable ties make quick work out of securing loose defrost heaters or evaps. 25 for about 6 bucks. Don't think they transfer heat well enough to use to keep defrost drain tube open after securing to a defrost heater. Otherwise very useful.
At 150 lbs working load they also come in handy when playing a quick game of cops and robbers with that customer's young'un who keeps going into your tool bag. "Zip....Zip" and instant handcuffs on the little thief. Keep telling him it's a game until you can make your getaway. http://www.harborfre...ties-92515.html
For $2.50 you can be the proud owner of these compact nippers http://www.harborfre...ers-39531.html.
Great for cutting stems on those universal infinite burner switches. You know the ones I am talking about....those "damn I bent too much off the stem and I ain't got another one with me" switches. These nippers are compact so you may need several cuts or opt for the 6.99 bigger brother.
Now I have used this driveway alarm system for quite a while and for numerous purposes
Use it in my store when everybody is gone and I need to work on something out back where I can't hear the door chime. This thing is loud and has great range (300ft) between the sensor and alarm module. Everything is portable. You can throw the sensor in your truck and place the alarm on your night stand or carry it in your toolbag when you need a quick and dirty silent alarm.
Best of all is its intended purpose: Nail one to a tree next to your driveway and when your wife comes home on your day off, you'll have time to stop posting on appliantology and grab the vacuum before she walks in. On sale for 15 bucks http://www.harborfre...stem-93068.html
