For the DIY master: Craftsman Extreme GRIP tools

Sponsored postDo you have a handy man/woman on your list? If so, you will want to head into a Sears store to see their awesome deals on Craftsman tools just in time for holiday gifting.

When picking tools, I’m always thinking of our next DIY projects. We always have a few projects we’d like to complete, and 2016 is shaping up to have a pretty long to-do list, so I thought new tools would make the prospect of house repairs a little bit more exciting.

Extreme GRIP toolsI already knew I wanted to check out the Craftsman Extreme GRIP tools, and it was just a matter of narrowing down my options and choosing one for our projects. This led me to the Craftsman Extreme GRIP 5pc Socket Accessory Set that features movable jaws to provide solid fit for standard, metric and rounded fasteners.

In fact, it is said to offer up to 14 times more gripping power* on rounded and stripped fasteners thanks to its serrated jaws for gripping. Since many of our projects are upcycled or repurposed items, this gripping power is a huge selling point for me. Unlike new furniture that you buy unassembled which comes with a full list of tools and fasteners you need, DIY and upcycling is a bit of an art form since you never know what kinds of hardware we will encounter – or how many decades old it is. Craftsman Extreme GripCraftsman Extreme GRIP 5pc Socket Accessory Set {model 12757} includes 5 sockets that fit 10 different sizes of fasteners. The set includes the following sizes: 7/16in, 1/2in, 9/16in, 5/8in, and 11/16in. Extreme GRIP socket set

The Craftsman Extreme GRIP 5pc Socket Accessory Set retails for $39.99, but you can find it on sale right now for $19.99. You can purchase it at, and Sears stores nationwide.

If I had unlimited funds, I would get this awesome Craftsman Extreme GRIP 40pc Mechanics Tool Set that includes a bit driver, diamond tip hex keys along with a ratchet, sockets and wrenches, all in a durable tool bag with a rubberized base and handle. It retails for $199.99, but you can find it for $99.99 right now for holidays. Craftsman Extreme GRIP tools

  1. I like Craftsman tools and got some for my husband for Christmas this year. The tools are so strong and never break and last forever.
