gallery-magic-hanging-system

Hanging pictures can be a nightmare of measuring tapes, levels, and holes in the walls - only to end up with your pictures still crooked and out of line.  With the Gallery Magic system, you won't have to work so hard and still end up with nicely spaced and level artwork.  The first part of [...]

I don't like putting keys in my pockets.  Since I don't always carry a bag, I've been looking for a clever way to keys onto things.  But what if you could combine both?  That's where the Fortius Arms KeyBiner Carabiner comes in. That's right, a carabiner that actually holds your keys.  If you use a [...]

Personal safety devices can be bulky and hard to use, but the Sound Grenade from ROBOCOPP has been designed like its namesake, the grenade. It's a small device weighing only one ounce that can be clipped to a bag, keychain, clothing, etc. When you pull the pin it will produce a 120 decibel alarm that's [...]

I have had many pocket knives over the years, from the first one I received as a cub scout to various sized and shaped ones I have strategically place throughout my world today. I have them stashed in my cars, desks, tool bag, EDC gear, etc. They are a very useful tool to have around without [...]

Contigo-Randolph-3

Before I review any gadget, I need my cup o’ Joe. There’s nothing like a piping hot cup of coffee to get the creative juices flowing. So it’s particularly fitting that I have the opportunity to review the Contigo Randolph stainless steel travel mug. While most travel mugs are tumblers without handles, the Randolph mug [...]

I was brainstorming for article ideas yesterday, when I realized that I haven't posted an EDC update in almost year.  It's time to remedy that situation! This will be part one of my EDC update as I audit what I carry each day and decide if there are items that I can drop and items that [...]

pacelid

If I can find one product that can do five things, the minimalist in me will choose it over five separate products that can only do one thing each. That's why the Kickstarter project for the PACE lid caught my eye. The PACE lid replaces the existing lid of wide mouth Nalgene, MSR, and Klean [...]

Readyman Wilderness Survival Card

As many of you may know, I am a sucker for card size tools. I have reviewed and posted news stories on several throughout my years with The Gadgeteer, so it takes something a little different to catch my eye. The Readyman Wilderness Survival Card is that product. The Readyman Wilderness Survival Card is a [...]

A year ago I reviewed the Zerohour XD tactical flashlight and closed by saying that it was probably the last flashlight I'd ever purchase.  Well, the folks at Zerohour haven't been standing still and have recently introduced the little brother to the XD and I may have to eat my words.  I'll give it a [...]

Whether you are a "prepper" getting ready for the doomsday scenario, a back-country hiker or a suburban warrior, an entire industry has been built around survival and preparedness.

gatekeeper_carabiner-1b

The Gatekeeper carabiner is currently a Kickstarter campaign aiming to raise $25,000 in funding. And while it does not require a battery, plug, cord, etc…it definitely qualifies as an interestingly designed gadget. It is a finely machined accessory engineered to securely clip your keys, tiny flashlight, micro tool, etc to your belt-loop or gear bag. Note: Images can [...]
