Everything that we received in our Handy Box for July. Lots of great gadgets in here!

So what is all this stuff?

our box insert
Our box insert that details each of the items that we received and also retail prices
Super Suction Hook
super suction hook
This hook is made of durable plastic and is great for lockers, home offices, and closets. Use lever to secure and release the suction cup! We aren’t sure where we will put this yet but we are certain it will come in handy at some point!
Pocket LED Light with Suction Grip
This super useful light is great for looking under things (like sinks and cars). The suction cup allows you to use both hands and still have a light source. It also fully rotates and has adjustable tips for zooming! 
Definitely a great gadget to have on hand! Particularly when things go awry!
4 Piece Mini Plier Set
4 piece mini plier set
This 4 piece set comes with a straight needle nose plier, 45 degree needle nose plier, diagonal plier, and an end nipper.
All nestled inside this really cool carrying case.
The tools themselves are a very nice quality. Plated in nickel iron and rubber grips which make these aesthetic as well as practical!
Telescope LED Light Flex Head
This may look like an ordinary pen light but we assure you it’s anything but!
It starts out at 6.5 inches and extends to 21 inches!
The head is also flexible so you can look in hard to see places. We can tell you exactly how we are going to use this, late at night when we go to bed our husband hides from us. And then jumps out and terrifies us (it’s awful)! This will stop him cold! 
Folding 23″ Camp Shovel

How awesome is this?! This heavy duty steel shovel has a serrated side for sawing wood and the tempered forged steel makes digging with this shovel extremely easy
The best part is that it folds away into it’s canvas carrying bag. This is great for people that go camping and gardeners

So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. This is a fun box for all sorts of DIY’ers and home repair enthusiasts. We think it’s a great way to find out about new gadgets! The quality is great – each item is really nice and of an awesome quality. The presentation is good. Everything arrives exactly as it should. The curation is great as well, this box is full of useful tools we’d never seen or heard of before. We think this would make an excellent gift for Dad or any handy people in your life!
As far as box economy the Handy Box is $21.95 monthly and for that we received $57 in items! That’s an awesome deal!
