Testing the World’s Most Hated Tool
Imagine a tool that is a one-stop solution for almost every problem that you run into on the job when it comes to tightening or loosening hardware. This tool can tackle a whole variety of different nuts, bolts, and just about anything that needs to be loosened or tightened, knocking out the need for things like socket sets and wrenches. Being able to tackle everything with one toold would be an absolute dream as this tool would replace hundreds of dollars in tools, not only helping the bank account but also freeing up space in the toolbox, both of which are valuable assets.
There are a lot of tools out there to get done just about any job. Each and every year, that list continues to expand, giving us more and more options for every possible niche that one can think of. The issue is that not all of these new additions are useful as many of them are problem-riddled novelties that don’t stand up to the test of time.
This time, we check in with the “Gator Grip” socket that one might file away in the “feels too good to be true” category. The socket that’s fitted with pins will adjust to your application so that you don’t need to go fishing around for that pesky lost 10mm anymore… in theory.
When push comes to shove, maybe this thing doesn’t exactly perform as it should. In fact, it seems as if the consenus on the Gator Grip is that, while the idea is pretty smart, it struggles to work when push comes to shove.
Below, we check in with a review from Donut Media of what might just be one of the most viral tools on the Internet. The idea this time is to put it to the test and see if it is capable of standing up to the stout promises that it makes.
