I never knew there was such a thing called” Brick Clip” that allows you to hang picture frames to a brick wall without drilling holes ,and we all know what a pain in the A$$ that job can be.

Products like this come on the market without advertising and some of us don’t even know they are available unless we see it .

This is just a suggestion/question.what do you think if we had a forum dedicated to all the new and cool tools that we see in our daily lives and we think might be useful in a shop or around the house,if we had a” cool tools forum” , we could post stuff like this brick clip there to let others know.

I think it is a good idea. Looks like someone’s light bulb came on with that gadget. Very cool.

Great idea Ken.

These drywall anchors are driven in with a phillips bit and then you can
fasten a screw with the same bit.

It was new to me a while back.

regarding the fasteners that wah0609 posted. They also make ‘em in aluminum which are stronger and came be easily taken out and reused over and over. When we moved from 10aSEE to here I pulled about 60 of them from the walls and brought them with me. A can of spackle was cheap instead of having to buy all new anchors.

Joe ,I have seen those fasteners but didn’t know you could pull them out and reuse them. New gadgets or ideas are all around ,here’s another thing I found the other day:

Oh yeah, you sure can reuse them. Some of them have been used in the last 3 houses we lived in.

I’ve used the wall anchors, both plastic and metal. But I wonder if the metals ones aren’t zinc rather than AL?

That is indeed handy, but not new.
I used to use it all the time in the 1960s when I was a TV repair technician.
It was designed at that time to repair plastic knobs on TVs.

I actually thought about buying/using this plast-aid to mold a knob for my 1950 radio, looks like a great product to have around the house.

I just found a source in Toronto ,$34 Canadian dollars,what is it nowadays.$7 USD?lol.
