Father's Day Gift? Consider Giving Dad a Tool

Share Article

Women should give dads tools that make household repairs easy. Dads love tools and moms benefit, too. But, how does one find a tool he needs and doesn't already have?

Men like tools and a new tool can mean as much as jewelry or cosmetics mean to women. But, tools are outside most women's gift comfort zone. So, dad usually ends-up with shirts or after-shave for Father's Day.

A product search by a major U. S. retailer ranked the Tight Fit® Tool Kit among "The 100 Best New Products" in the country. Tool inventor, John Lloyd, noted that, "Men like tools and a new tool can mean as much as jewelry or cosmetics mean to women. But, tools are outside most women's gift comfort zone. So, dad usually ends-up with shirts or after-shave for Father's Day."

The Tight Fit® Tool Kit, developed in the aerospace industry, was the first item featured at a nationally televised celebration of innovation and Yankee ingenuity held at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. The event honored Ben Franklin's 300th birthday. Noting Franklin's penchant for practicality, Lloyd commented, "the kit provides simple solutions for problems made difficult due to limited work space."

The tools' origins can be traced to aircraft design where aerodynamic shape required development of compact, "full-power" tools that work in very tight places. "Today," the inventor said, "with more things squeezed into less space at home and on cars, boats, RV's, etc., fathers increasingly experience "strait-jacketed" frustration when conventional tools will not fit in tight places and simple jobs become hair-pulling nightmares. For professionals, time is money; for dads, less stress can be a life saver."

The kit scored high in all of the following categories:
1. Simple to use and understand; 2. Makes difficult jobs easy; 3. Wide range of uses;     4. Saves time and expense; 5. High value-to-cost ratio; 6. Good quality-to-price ratio;     7. Durable with good longevity; 8. Good portability and storage; 9. Ergonomically safe design; 10. New to home users but has long history of use by professionals

The tools in the kit address a wide range of repair headaches. But, as a bonus, many standard tools already in dad's toolbox can be used with the kit in tight fit situations. "These features," he said, "make it a good Father's Day gift. But, what makes it a great gift choice is the fact that it is new and not yet in any stores. This provides opportunity to surprise dad or granddad with an innovative set of practical, extremely versatile, time-saving tools he doesn't already have."

This Father's Day, the Tight Fit® Tool Kit is available direct, on-line, from the U. S. manufacturer. Visit the manufacturer's website at: http://www.TightFitTools.com for complete kit details, demonstration of multiple tool combinations and versatile "real life" problem-solving examples, plus accessory items, order and Father's Day delivery information, etc.

Contract Manufacturing Services, Inc. is a small family-owned California business with a history dating back to the seventies as a manufacturer of aircraft and automotive tools. The kit's inventor, John Lloyd, has experience dealing with tight fit problems spanning work from the Gemini and Apollo space capsules to deep-sea habitats.
