Every time I visit the beach I am always trying to hide my valuables while we are distracted or swimming. I always feel vulnerable leaving my wallet and cell phone hidden in my towel or shoes while in the water. This FlexSafe might be the answer. You simply lock it onto your lounge chair, umbrella, stroller, bike, etc… The...

If you live in a household that doesn’t allow shoes, like mine, you quickly realize some people don’t like taking their shoes off. I’m not going to get into the reasons you should/shouldn’t take your shoes off when coming in from the outside. To each their own. So for the shoeless amongst us… there are two options; take off the shoes, or put on a plastic shoe cover. Shoe covers are great but not the most fun to put on over shoes. Enter the Kwik...

If you have ever wrestled with a cracked or hardened nylon/rubber hose then you know it can be quite frustrating. I had no idea there was such a thing as a stainless steel garden hose unit I bumped into this one. They are available in 25′, 50′, 75′, and 100′ models and are priced fairly.

I was always told that if you plan for A, B, and C that D will be the one that blindsides you. I think this theory was supposed to tell me not to worry.

There are slingshots and there are “ahem” slingshots! Just like the one we had as kids, the Assolar SS-12 can shoot ball bearings, marbles, rocks, etc… But it also sports an infrared sight and a laser flashlight. Still not impressed? It has adjustable springs and can even shoot arrows. Yours for a mere $88 here. ...

Camping season is upon us, so, now would be a good time to inventory your gear and upgrade some of the outdated bits. For example, a 4-pack of LED tent stakes would be a solid upgrade. Not only do they prevent people form getting tangled up in the tent lines, they also happen to be quality built aluminum. A couple of other cool features; location marking for easily locating your tent, great for late night tent set-up, and the LED can be removed from the stake for use as a portable wayfinding light.

The “ugly Christmas sweater” parties are about to get next-level-epic now that you can have your own industrial sweater knitting machine, the Kniterate ($4,600). I know, the price is a tad crazy but you could split it amongst friends and get years of custom sweaters. The Kniterate Knitting Machine can take just about an design you can think of and convert it into a hideous work of art. ...
