Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Signal Booster

Last Toolsday, we posted a photo of two rectangular slotted gadgets and asked you to identify them. We had a variety of answers: table-saw inserts, seatbelt protectors, mail slot, a faceplate for a paper towel dispenser. Those are all very clever answers, but they’re wrong. The mystery gadgets are fingerboard guards. They’re placed over and around the frets on a guitar to protect the fingerboards when working on the frets.   

We randomly picked one winner out of all last week’s comments and that lucky person is Kenny, who thought they had something to do with a seatbelt. Congrats Kenny, even though you answered incorrectly, you still win. You have exactly one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

Next Tuesday we will be giving away a zBoost SOHO Signal Booster with DataBlast UPGRADE. Plan on working in your workshop or garage this summer? Obstructions are no match for these components, which work together to increase cell signal and 4G data speeds, improve upload and download speeds, support multiple users simultaneously and extend the battery life of your mobile device. This Verizon-only package includes the base unit, whip antenna, power supply, quad-band signal antenna with mounting hardware and signal combiner.

Happy Spring!  Are you planning a backyard makeover?  Let us help.  We’ve got plenty of ideas and how-to instructions for laying a new patio, putting up a retaining wall, building a deck, constructing a pergola or just simply stacking some stones to make a fire pit.  

To win the zBoost SOHO Signal Booster with DataBlast UPGRADE, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what this little doohickey (pictured below) is used for.  You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.

On Tuesday, April 2, 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 April 2, 2013, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the zBoost SOHO DataBlast.

Official Rules.
