Keep your tools, storage unit, or bacon-filled basement securely locked up using the OnGuard Beast Padlock ($25). It features a pick, pull, and drill resistant M-key Cylinder with BumpBlok, a X2 Dual Lock Down Deadbolt locking mechanism, a reinforced sleeve over the crossbar and cylinder, and five included keys, one of which sports an LED light to prevent nighttime padlock mishaps.
It's always irritating when you're trying to get a job done several feet up in the air only to battle baby-sized rungs. The Little Giant BigTrex Ladder ($170) solves this problem, and several others, with innovative features like extra-wide, 6.5-inch deep rungs, an integrated no-pinch handle that lets you open and close the ladder with just one hand, an included tool tray with a magnetic cubby for screws, nuts, and bolts and an integrated tool slot, and a weight of just 22 lbs. The downside? You now have even fewer excuses to replace that burnt-out, far-off light bulb.
Made from salvaged, heavily-used canvases and sporting a design based on hours of customer conversations, The Field House Trusty Workshop Apron ($165) is designed to be your go-to cover when taking care of projects big and small. Constructed by third-generation Seattle sailmaker George Broom, this no-nonsense apron features a criss-cross harness system for comfort, two chest pockets — one for a calculator and one for a carpenter's pencil + compass — and a large pouch pocket with dividers for nails, screws, and other tools, all covered by a flap to keep sawdust and debris away from your gear.
