Tips for Buying Tools and Hardware
Your best bet when buying tools and hardware is to choose a reliable brand. There is nothing more frustrating when working on a project and your tool snaps or breaks. It was the right price and looked good but it was not dependable. Several hardware and tool brands offer full replacement for the life of their products. It's a deal if you can afford to buy a good brand that just may last a life time.
Keep an extra supply of nails, screws, and tacks around the home for easy repairs. A box of assorted small hardware items is available for easy storage. Usually the shorter screws that come with a paper towel or toilet paper holder need to be replaced with normal wear and tear.
