Kenway Trailer Adapter
If you pull trailers and don’t already have an adapter to connect the seven-pin round connector on the vehicle to a flat-four connector on the trailer, this is an essential $10 item to keep in your glove box. If you’re planning a trip to pick up some gravel at the local landscaping center and need to rent one of their trailers, check your vehicle connection. You might need one of these!
Viking Jumper Cables
In cold climates, 20-ft., 2-gauge jumper cables are must-have emergency gear. These are rated to 410 amps, which should cover you for any common vehicle application. And the 20 ft. length allows you to set up a jump hook-up from behind a vehicle of average length, so you don’t need to turn and park the wrong way on a street, which can be dangerous.
Badland Wireless Winch
Including several improvements to the latest model, this synthetic, 12,000-lb. winch provides specs and features you’ll pay more than twice the price to get on competitors’ products. It’s built for heavy-duty work with machined and hardened steel planetary gears, IP68 and IP69K water and dust resistance and forged alloy steel hook. And it offers premium technology like wireless control (allowing for added safe operating distance), synthetic rope (safer and lighter than steel) and fast no-load line speed to get you back to work or on the trail quicker after use.
Apache Weatherproof Case
There are a million uses for a clear, weatherproof case on a job site, in your car, boat or at your campsite. This one will fit your basic phone, wallet and keys, with a bit of room to spare for other compact everyday items. IP65 dust and water resistance will protect your gear from dust and moisture for days. This case is cheap insurance for your vital and expensive gear.
Chief Die Grinder
This 1/4-in., mini air angle die grinder can be super useful in a garage or workshop, making quick and clean work of light metal cutting or shaping. Use a cutting wheel to take out a rusted bolt; drop in a rotary rasp to see some magic when you need to expand a hole just a little bit; or reshape a chunk of metal that just needs that freehand touch. Be sure to protect yourself from the inevitable metal filings.
HFT Bucket Lid
This one’s a super return on investment. For a couple dollars, this 5-gallon bucket lid transforms any bucket into a comfy work seat, weatherproof tool storage container or used-oil reservoir for oil changes. Buy multiple to make your buckets stackable and maximize usable space. Also, check out these 15 brilliant 5-gallon bucket hacks.
Fortress Air Compressor
For small DIY home improvement projects, consider the benefits of a compact, light 6-gallon, 175-psi air compressor like this one. Over-sizing for your use case can be a significant detriment. For example, some older and slightly larger models weigh in at around 75 lbs. You’ll be more apt to pull out and use this 31-lb. model as long as it meets specifications for your required tools and applications.
