At home, we have all sorts of gizmos and gadgets that were bought in order to make life easy for us. We really don't know when some things need fixing and a lot of these things need some unusual tools to fix.
One of the things that we have and I really like to have around is the Micro Bent Nose Plier made by Speed. It is small, just enough for my grip. And the fact that it is a long but bent nose plier makes it multi-functional. I use it to pull the string when I strand beaded jewelry. I use it to take our some coins from the piggy bank. I use it to pry open some small metal stuff.
I also appreciate the fact that it has a spring in the middle which makes it easy to handle and manipulate to what I need.
It is made of steel with a rubber enclosed handle.
It is very useful yet very affordable, as it only costs a little more than $2. It can also be easily stored in the tool box because it is small. It comes with a plastic pouch so that it will not also easily get lost. Very good tool be around the house.
