Hold On - Proving that simple inventions can solve big problems, the Magnogrip wristband is embedded with magnets to provide a low-tech solution for nail or screw storage.

It is made from high-density polyethylene, so it will not rust. Cost: $37.15 to $50. Mar-flex Waterproofing and Basement Products. 800-498-1411.
