Turn your finger into a socket! Nuts and bolts snap into the finger-mounted tool for correct positioning, and don’t come out until they’re properly threaded. Even works with your glove on, in cold weather. Perfect for tight spaces.
Stop wasting time looking for dropped nuts in engine compartments, under dashboards and on the ground. Stop wasting time reversing tape on the end of a screwdriver or gripping a nut with needle nose pliers just to get a nut started in a hard to reach place. Stop getting off of a ladder to look for nuts in your carpet or garage floors when working on ceiling fans, light fixtures or garage door openers. Stop trying to pinch small nuts between your fingers when working on household appliances or computers.
Simply adjust the strap to fit on your finger or thumb. Place the nut or bolt into the socket. The socket is designed to hold onto the nut or bolt. Start the nut or bolt with your finger. It is just that easy. When you are finished you can store the Finger Grip Socket in the handy storage tray organizer.

Do you know about the FIST – Free Image Search Tool?
The purpose of FIST is to find free images which can be added to articles. Lists of articles to find articles for can be submitted in various formats. FIST can search multiple sources:
- Wikipedia links in other languages
- Wikimedia Commons
- WikiTravel Shared
- GIMP-SAVVY (lots of PD images from the US Gov.)
- everystockphoto.com (itself a meta-search engine for free images)
- Geograph (UK)
Together with a truckload of options (scan title lists, categories to depth X, replace placeholder images) and fine-tunings for the individual searches, it is already likely to be one of the most comprehensive free image (meta-)search tools on the web.
Maybe you know that you can use Google search not just to find words and pics, but you also can search for files. The most searched files are multimedia – music and video. Some people put those files on the websites and allow other users to download them. If files are in the open directories than we can very easy find them, excluding from our search results junk pages that do not contain needed files.
The secret is to give Google a special search string using operators that are hard to remeber if you do not use them every day. So here is a small but useful tool for creating that string for you: Google Multimedia Search. It wil add all needed words and you can start searching!
