    I bought this tool set as a gift for my boyfriend because it was fairly inexpensive and had a good review. I was very disappointed with the quality of it. The hammer looks like it is sloppily glued together, the case fell apart almost immediately – essentially the set looks and is cheaply made. It’s been months since I bought the set (the only reason I’m posting this is because I was going through past orders and was appalled that this set had only one 4-star review!) and I’m not well-versed on the names of different items in the set – but most of the items were plastic and cheap looking. Maybe this should have been obvious from the price, but I was still very disappointed that I spent $50 on something that was more appropriately made to be a play tool kit for a child than to be used to actually do any kind of repairs. My advice – spend more and get something of better quality! We haven’t gotten any use out of it.

    This is a toolset for a child, it isn’t even dorm room quality. The screwdriver after a full charge can only handle 5 pre-loosened screws. The clips are made of cheap plastic. Customer service is poor

    I have an extensive collection of good tools, but I keep them in my garage which is not attached to my home. For small household jobs I wanted a tool set that could cover just about anything, without running out for this tool or that. This set looked great because it included the essentials (pliers, screwdrivers, level, tape-measure, hammer), as well as the nice to haves (scissors, mini screwdrivers, knife), the luxuries (clamps, scraper, tape) and a segmented hardware box so you can easily find the screw, nail, or drywall anchor you need.

    Unfortunately the set and box are poorly made, and fail to stand up to even light household use. The electric screw gun didn’t work straight out of the box. I found that if I shook it a bit I could get it to turn on for a few seconds, but it would quickly die again. Clearly a loose connection. In addition, the hammer and a few other tools were poorly glued together and looked like they were ready to break apart at any moment. The clamps were too small to be used on any job that I could think of that would require a clamp.

    The real deal-breaker for me was the box itself. The molded inserts didn’t hold any of the tools in at all. Every time I opened it all the tools from the “top” of the box would fall out and scatter. In addition, the plastic locks didn’t actually lock in at all, meaning the box was prone to opening while being carried (the handle is only molded on one side, not both).

    Overall, this tool kit is a great idea that is just poorly and cheaply executed. I can’t recommend this set.
