Finger Socket Wrench

Let me count the ways this will not work.  Why/how does this type of stuff make it from the dumb idea that it is to a “working” prototype?

First of all it is made of plastic!  Um… the nut is metal!  Second, if that nut has a bolt passing through it the “tool” is rendered useless.  Lastly, what type of leverage or power to you expect to get from your finger?

I wish there was a video of someone trying to use this goofy product.  If you have $19.95 to waste give it a shot.

    not a bad idea….have you ever tried to hold a bold with just your finger behind an object, under the dash of a car, or engine,or other places you can’t see behind while your threading the bolt..once threaded, than u reach a metal tool behind there…..

    Actually in certain circumstances I could see using these. Not often, which is why the plastic doen’t bother me. I mean how many times have you tried screwing in something ahd hold the nut in place at the same time.
