We did a pretty hefty eye roll when we first saw these things, but we've thought about it and now we're not so sure... Tool Dots are nothing more than magnets with an adhesive on one side. Just stick them on the wall and commence hanging your tools on them. Sounds kinda dopey, right? Our first thought was, "that's lame, we'll just go out and get our own magnets and brush some West System on one side and put them on the wall." But that would be plenty messy and once time is factored in, it probably wouldn't be worth the effort. Who knows?
We're still not inclined to go out and get these, but that's more because we keep all of our tools in bags or cases so we can travel with them. If you have a shop in the garage or a little set up in the basement then these might be perfect. They're certainly nicer looking than the dreaded pegboard.
You can get a 12 pack of them for about $12...a buck a magnet.
Available in a couple different colors at Laboratory 424
