The holiday season comes with the installation of lights, the build of new toys, and the constant repairs and preparations of house guests. During this season, you will notice that you are getting good use of your toolbox. Before you are met with the constant DIY expectations of the holiday season, make sure your toolbox is filled and ready with the following supplies.
Hammer and nails
You are likely to use your hammer and nails often during the holiday season. You will nail the lights into the wall. You might even nail the exterior holiday lights to the house. If you have any additional holiday decorations like stockings or lighted holiday signs, you will likely also hammer these into the wall. Many of the toys that your children open underneath the tree might also require the use of a hammer and nails to fully assemble. Make sure your hammer is at the top of your toolbox and that you have a good supply of nails available.
A good variety of screws
Screws, similar to a hammer and nails, are an expected tool all year long. You will also use many different types of screws during this season. It is a good idea to check that you have multiple sizes of screws in your toolbox, including micro screws. Micro screws are good for those small projects, such as toys that come with many building parts. You also might use micro screws for basic home repairs during this busy season.
Micro screws are just one of the available types of screws. Sometimes, custom screws are needed, but you can use various miniature screws in the meantime. Hi lo screws are another option and they have a reduced minor diameter and therefore they displace less plastic material and minimize stress. These screws have a double lead high and low thread with the high tread having a 30 degree thread form that further minimized material displacement while providing positive thread engagement. Many of the custom made micro screws were made many years ago. Early screws had to be handmade, so no two were ever alike. In the year 1928, the National Screw Thread Commission established a standard for screw threads for interchangeability. Today, many screws can be used for multiple purposes, but custom screws do still exist.
Custom fastener and plumbing products
What do plumbing products and the holidays have in common? Well, many households will see an increase in plumbing usage. With many family members and guests coming and going during this busy holiday season, more and more people will be using the household?s plumbing. Because this is an increase in use from the average, you are likely to experience more plumbing problems. Fortunately, many of these problems can be solved with home DIY projects. Just make sure you have a custom fastener and other types of fastener options available.
There are a lot of preparations and renovations that need to be made around the house in preparation for the holiday. Your toolbox will get a lot of use during this time. When you are not making household preparations, you are making household repairs. Additionally, you are also putting together and fixing the many products that are gifting during the holidays. The concept of the screw dates back to around 200 B.C. Micro screws are just one of the needed products in your toolbox. You should also have access to a sturdy hammer, a good supply of nails, and plumbing repair tools.
