Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Set of Clamps and Pliers

To enter last week’s Toolsday’s giveaway, you had to identify twin coil thing-a-ma-bobs in a framed contraption. We had a lot correct answers – most people knew they were hot-air balloon burners. We randomly picked one winner out of all the comments and that lucky person is tacokds whose guess of a gas-torch light was sort of right.  Congrats tacokds, you have one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away a C.H. Hanson prize pack that includes 10″ Curved Jaw Automatic Locking Pliers7″ Locking Clamp and 7″ Needle-Nose Pliers. Each tool features Set & Forget technology, ergonomic handles, can lock on any size without adjusting and allows for simple one hand use. 

Christmas is just around the corner. We’ve got fun decorating ideas and DIY projects for every taste and style including midcentury modern, coastal cottage, charming rustic, 60s retro, colorful bohemian and romantic traditional – find one that makes you merry. 

To win the pliers and clamps, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what this part (pictured below) belongs to and what it does. You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.

On Tuesday, November 20, we will select the winner then start up a new giveaway for another tool, which will be given away the Tuesday after that.

You have until November 20, 2012 at 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the pliers and clamps.  

Official Rules.

    Well It's a cheap one because you can't see the neme emblazoned on the visable flat side, but, it's a bicycle derailleur, it changes gears buy moving the chain to a different size gear on the hub of the rear wheel of a bike.
