As the snow continues to fall here at Uncrate HQ, our thoughts turn to that highly-irritating of winter rituals — the need to scrap snow, ice, and other crud off your windows and windshield. The Snowdozer ($17) can make this process a little less heinous, thanks to a double-blade design that scrapes both forward and backward, a front handle to reduce strain, an extendable, telescoping arm for reaching far across your huge SUV, a built-in brush for sweeping the small stuff away, and a front plow to keep snow off your hands. Next up? Your driveway.
Put that Dyson Animal to real use by picking up the Dyson Groom ($70). This ingenius attachment is meant for use with medium and long haired dogs, and employs 364 retractable slicker bristles to remove loose hair from your dog, while suction captures the removed hair and dead skin cells, leaving your home hair-free and your dog's coat looking healthier. Just make sure you've got an upright vacuum to attach it to, as it isn't designed to work with canisters or handhelds.
Get your weekend project done quickly and easily with the Craftsman Ratcheting Wrench Set ($40). This handy set includes seven wrenches — metric sizes 10 thru 15 + 17mm — and feature a universal teeth design that can grip and turn six different types of nuts and bolts, meaning less time spent digging in the toolbox and more time watching pre-game shows.
Carry cords, keys, what have you with the S-Biner Ahhh ($4). This dual-ended product features two robust gate carabiner clips for carrying/joining rope, stainless steel construction, and two built-in bottle openers which will no doubt need require alcoholic acrobatics to open two at once.
