Toolsday Giveaway: Win a DeWalt Hammer

In order to be eligible to win last Toolsday’s (a.k.a. Tuesday) prize, we asked you to guess the identity of a little wood object with two spikes on the end.  It was easier than we thought – most everyone knew that it was a boot jack.  To use the jack, you need to anchor it to the ground, or hold it down with one foot. Then put the other foot in between the spikes, heel side in, and pull your foot out of the boot.  Boot jacks were popular in the olden times, out West when boots were worn most of the time.

We randomly picked the winner from all the comments and that lucky person is Yasuko J. who knew it was a boot jack.  Congrats Yasuko J., you have one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.  

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away a DeWalt Hammer.  DeWalt’s all-steel hammers are designed for durability and long life. The ergonomic grip absorbs vibration and minimizes fatigue and slipping. The magnetic head allows for easy one-handed nail placement.

Having a hard time getting your family to help clean up around the house?

To enter the DeWalt Hammer giveaway post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what this tool (pictured below) is used for. You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.

On Tuesday, January 29, we will select the winner of the DeWalt Hammer then start up a new giveaway for another tool, which will be given away the Tuesday after that.

You have until January 29, 2013, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the giveaway. 

Official Rules.
