ThumbSaver Magnetized Nail Setter

Smash Test Thumby


The ThumbSaver Magnetic Nail Setter ($13) is an ingeniously simple solution for a fairly common problem. It’s grooved magnetized tip is strong enough to hold even the thickest of nails firmly in place while hammering — sparing your most important evolutionary digit in the event your aim is slightly off the mark. The magnet is also strong enough to pick up smaller items that roll out of reach. Available in multiple sizes to suit various jobs, the bonus pack offers both the standard and mini for under $13. Experienced handy men can laugh at the toolish concept all they want, but in our minds, it’s definitely worth at least one (functional) thumb up.
