As Seen On TV TOOLS Tested! (TAC Tool, Pocket Chainsaw, MagnoGrip)

published on July 13, 2020

Not every as seen on tv products a waste of money but how would you really know unless you try it or better yet we try them for you we're gonna take a look at some unusual tools and find out if they're worth your cash or that are off in the trash

Thanks to Wix for sponsoring this video click the link in the description and make your own professional website in just minutes first out the tool bag is the insta hang a easy and efficient way to hang just about anything in seconds

We can't you already do that it comes in a dazzling 47 piece set and each peg can hold up to ten pounds so there's no reason to keep anything on your floor anymore after cutting open the packaging we've got the device itself as well as a

Ton of pegs caps and hooks if you flip the packaging over on the back you'll find some directions to get the insta hang go the unit is primarily of plastic design with a silver plunger at the top that you'll use to drive the pig into

The surface there's also a small bubble underneath to ensure that your anchors are level to start loading it up slide the black topper backward you'll reveal four pegs to place your hooks on give the rear a slight half turn and the

Sliding spring should come right out next just load your clip and replace the springs really just a three step process picket pack it fire it up come along hang a picture on my wall all you've got to do is choose your mark hold the unit

Against the wall and after making sure it's level give the plunger a hefty tap as you can see hanging a few paintings from the local talent can be done in mere moments we do want to mention that the insta hang doesn't only work well on

Drywall take this outdoor pillar for example after lining it up and given it a good smack our pig becomes a permanent fixture ready to display all of our finest art with everything said and done the insta hang does work it's a quick

Way to ensure a level hang and it works fairly well on multiple surfaces unfortunately thumbtacks and nails are already a thing and you could easily just use those instead of these similarly shaped pay

At a fraction of the price so unless you're looking to do some rapid-fire thumbtack and action you're probably good with what you've got in your junk drawer already greased up and ready for a good time is the sportsman pocket

Chainsaw for when you want to tackle some light logging on the go but without the complications of modern machinery our treasure came wrapped in a beautifully designed cardboard chest with a picture of Bullwinkle off

Cracking it open we've got a fashionable belt pouch as well as a small bag containing a bonus fire starter inside the pouch is another bag containing the saw compactly wrapped and ready for use first impression it's lightweight yet

Sturdy other than the nylon handles at each end it's constructed very similarly to a traditional chainsaw while working out our kinks we notice there weren't as many saw blades as we had expected initially nor do they look particularly

Sharp but let's give this a try on some forestry behind the householdhacker layer grabbing each handle and going in a smooth but steady back-and-forth motion you should be able to work right through anything that gets in its path

Surprisingly even thicker branches were no match for the raw power of these crazy back-and-forth dance moves the outer layers shed almost immediately in the entire process is much more painless than you'd expect that being said the

Chain did manage to get itself stuck in just a couple of our tests this is easily fixed but you would want to be careful because the friction you're creating will make the chain quite hot now that we've tested the blades

Let's cut open this watermelon to pull them off a bit just place your fruit right on the table and sneakily wrap your blade around it once it's positioned to give it a hearty pull this may take a few tries but you'll be left

With a nice cleanly cut watermelon and of course a picnic to remember this method also works great on a bottle of water if your lids stuck just slide the chainsaw around the midsection and give it a Yank you'll know you are successful

If you end up with most of the water on your clothes in fact the pocket chainsaw works well on any fruits or vegetables dare enter your domain all in all these sports been pocket chainsaw really

Surprised us in a good way recommend it to you not only is it easy to use but it's compact enough to put in your camping pack unfortunately it's hard to find this thing in most stores so if you're planning on doing a little

Logging you'll probably have to head to the Amazon did I just polish my grapple nope it's the tack tool in as-seen-on-tv multi-tool that houses 18 tools in one let's bust it out and see what it's made

Of inside the packaging we've got the multi-tool instructions in the all-too-familiar arbitration agreement as well as another sweet addition to our utility belt the tack tool has a decent weight to it and it feels reliable a

Small clasp on the bottom transforms it from hammer to wrench with the sharp edge tools and screwdriver concealed safely away the pouch makes no such guarantees however as the majority of the tool fits directly inside but leaves

The pointy claws sticking out and ring nails is a non-issue for the tactful and removing them is just as quick not so much when it comes to the screwdriver left it requires a very steady hand or it wants to repeatedly fold back into

Its base the blade within managed to slice this tomato with no issues looks gorgeous the branch saw was also very sharp although it really wanted to get stuck in the center of the branch during this

Process we noticed that using any of the interior objects you'll have to constantly be aware of the hammer o'clock is it'll sneak out and poke you in the wrist if you're not wearing gloves when opening it up to test the

Wire cutter we discover that this thing is more appropriate for wire stripping than cutting as it wouldn't even get through this thin cord to the lack of a sharp edge on the cutter itself giving it a go on some speaker wire was also a

Poor attempt which is why we've demoted it from cutter to crimper when it comes down to it this thing isn't bad if you're in a pinch or just need a couple tools to take with you the tack tool could be for you but if you expect every

Option to be a grand slam really setting yourself up for disappointment the Magno grip is not only a magnetic fashion statement but it's also a pocketless tool holder to allow you to forego the need of a helping hand

Getting in that packaging this nylon bracelet is well-made and rugged but not heavy at all opening the velcro fastener you can see that this strap is a one size fits all situation and it has plenty of room to

Spare after slapping the wrist with a handful of screws the Magno grip seems to be in working order except for the nail that was dropped as a booby trap to see how it performs when things get shaken we overloaded the wristband with

A handful of about 18 nails although we did lose about 6 here it's doubtful that you'd be shaking it all about or have that many with you in the first place it's almost like having a personal assistant keeping everything handy

Without searching for that elusive screw in your pocket to give you a real measure of the magnet strength we peg the strap to a post and grab anything nearby scissors are no problem but larger heavy tools won't stand a chance

Surprisingly the tack tool is an ideal weight to hang on for dear life with and it could still be the multi-purpose miracle that you've been longing for as far as we're concerned magno grip is a welcome addition to any project having a

Wristband that securely stores your nails and screws is great it's sure to make any project go that much smoother and speaking of smooth projects I want to thank Wix for sponsoring this video Wix is a website building platform that

Features hands down the best drag-and-drop design editor that I have ever used and on top of that it's free just make sure to click the link in the description below you don't need to know how to code or even a thing about design

They've got tons of fully customizable templates that you can adapt to whatever your needs may be I didn't want anything too fancy just an easy to access straightforward list of our videos while also providing a way to get a hold of us

The editor is an absolute dream to use allow me to quickly menu items which also automatically created a new page for me but my main goal was to feature our latest video and then have an automated video feed

Directly under Wix already had a system in place to do just that simply added a few householdhacker playlists to my account and they pulled in all the videos for me to use wherever I needed on my site I was able to put my featured

Content piece at the top resize it appropriately and even add some shadow for emphasis directly under that I wanted to put the rest of the videos so this is pretty close to what I was looking for and it didn't take all but

Ten minutes to do in terms of features I'm hardly scratching the surface and run chat rooms forums even run your own online store if you want so go try Wix yourself click the link in the description or head to wixcom slash go
