“These straps are the best deal in town (esp. when on sale) and they work great. I’ve had mine for years and no troubles at all! Very durable and well made.” – by Jeffro from Raleigh, NC

“I am so impressed with this product I am seriously considering going back to HF in the morning to grab another pack of four. My old set had the bare metal edges and when tightened down would cut into my hand if I didn’t use gloves. I especially like the plastic handles on these to remedy that situation. Great product for the price.” – by BeninChesapeake from Virginia

“I used these to secure a 16′ fiberglass canoe to the top of my minivan. I drove fine down the interstate at 70mph with no problems. I have secured several things on my vehicle for transporting and never experiences any of the issues reported with bending clips, etc. Frankly for the value, they are worth it.” – by Jeff from St. Charles, MO

“I have an older version of this jack. It is so easy to use that, even with my medical problems, I can still work on my cars. It fits under my Chevy Citation, and Chrysler New Yorker, but it has the power to lift our Mercury Villager easily! It raises the vehicle up high. When my cheap jack was stolen from under my van, I bought one of these, and I have never regretted it, even with the new lower price!” – Gary from San Diego, Ca

“I fell in love with this jack after my wife bought it for me. It’s the first jack I’ve owned where I felt I had complete control of the jack going down.  It is the main reason I like it and it’s easy on my bad back.” – Bob from Aiken, Co

“The jack worked well right out of the box. I didn’t have to bleed or adjust anything. The valve works well, the car can be lowered as abruptly or gradually as you want. I’ve used the jack for a year so far with no tricks or surprises. An excellent tool.” – Rantbot from Boston, Ma

Look, you don’t have to have a bad back to take full advantage of the awesome aluminum racing jack.  I don’t even think cyborgs like Rantbot have backs.  But for quick and easy lifting, you can’t go wrong with this tough, portable jack.  Well… I guess you can if you try to lift more than 3,000 lbs.  So, be sure to follow those instructions.  I know the guy who writes them and he spends a lot of time making sure they’re correct so don’t feel the need to test them.  We do that here.

Save Space and Add Convenience with the Retractable Hose Reel

Sometimes a tool simply adds convenience to your garage or shop, or has a space-saving feature that gives you more room to work in and to store your stuff.  And sometimes there’s an item like the Retractable Hose Reel with 50 Ft. Air/Water Hose that does both!  With this handy steel hose reel mounted in your work area, you’ll have instant access to your water or air hose and, when it’s not in use, it’s out of the way and neatly stored.  This not only frees up space but keeps the hose off the floor where it essentially becomes a tripping hazard.  With all of these benefits and an $89.99 price tag, you can’t afford to pass this incredible item up!  And if that still doesn’t reel you in, check out what actual customers think:

“No complaints. Works as advertised. Very solidly built. You may need an extra set of hands to mount it because it’s pretty heavy. No more air hoses to trip over. Makes things a lot easier.” – Dan from Jacksonville, FL

“I have used this for about 4 months in the shop daily for air, my pressure is 145psi. This unit always locks, always draws up nice, and does not leak. I am very happy with it and glad I bought it.” – Nathan from Elk River, MN

“I bought 2 of these. One for the shop and one for home. I have a 150psi air compressor and no problems with the hose or anything else. This was worth every cent and if you’re looking for a hose reel this is the one!!!!!” – Kevin Steele from North Jersey, NJ

image_19683

I would expect no fewer than four exclamation points from someone named Kevin Steele from New Jersey and Kevin doesn’t disappoint with a solid five.  And much like Mr. Steele, the awesome Retractable Hose Reel from Harbor Freight Tools won’t disappoint either!(!!!!) Use the included 50 foot, 3/8” diameter hose anytime you need it and, when you’re done, it retracts smoothly and effortlessly with a spring-loaded release so you can move right on to the next stage of your project.  Just mount the reel to your wall, floor, or ceiling and get to work!…!!!!

Versatile and Comfortable: Anti-Fatigue Foam Mat Set

Tired of working tired?  Well, be tired no longer with the 4 Piece Anti-Fatigue Foam Mat Set from Harbor Freight Tools!  That’s right, Anti-Fatigue.  These mats hate fatigue just as much as you do and they’re specifically designed to keep your feet comfortable even while standing for long periods of time!  But these mats aren’t just anti-fatigue.  They’re anti-slipping, waterproof, and impact absorbent!   It’s almost like these mats were specially made for hard-working individuals like yourself…  For additional insight, here’s what some other hard-working individuals had to say about these easy-to-use mats:

“Started with one set in front of the new workbench, also purchased at HF. After feeling the softness and comfort, we decided to get more and eventually covered the entire basement floor. Now when going down the basement to get something, we can even go barefoot. Great product. Keeps dry and very comfortable.” – Mike from Monroe, CT

“I bought my first set of these to use in front of my workbenches but I keep buying more as various needs arise.  I also found myself dragging these out to the driveway to work under the cars as they separate me from the concrete and require less vehicle height than a creeper. My wife bought a set of these to dampen the vibration from her “Total Gym” that sat directly on a hard wood floor and they worked out perfectly. These mats are great for reducing foot and ankle fatigue while working at the bench, but even better, separate my feet from the ice cold concrete floor in the winter time. These are so handy and inexpensive I keep extra sets around so I don’t have to relocate those that are in designated work areas.” – EvilSteve from Warren, MI

image_14950

You see, even supervillains like EvilSteve love these mats and those guys hate everything!  But, I guess supervillains get fatigued too, what with all the evildoing.  So, it only goes to show how diverse and versatile these mats really are.  And at just $9.99 per four-piece set, these mats go easy on your tool budget too.  Add safety and comfort to your work area with this fantastic mat set!

Jump Any Car with the Portable Power Pack

You never know when your car’s going to need a jump.  And you never know if there’s going to be someone nearby to help.  While jumper cables are a tried and true method for getting one last surge from your battery in order to get to the shop for repairs, you won’t always have another vehicle available to get you on your way.  That’s why you need to pick up a 3-in-1 Portable Power Pack with Jump Starter from Harbor Freight Tools!

Never again will you have to awkwardly ask a group of strangers in a backwoods diner for assistance jumping your vehicle.  Now you can handle it on your own and be back on the road in no time!  With the Portable Power Pack for just $49.99, you can start any weak or dead 12 volt car battery with no assistance necessary.  The included high-power, sealed battery connects to any car battery with the aid of reliable, heavy duty alligator clips and the built-in 3.6 watt work light illuminates your engine clearly while working.  No matter where you are or the time of day, you can get yourself out of a jam quick with this handy power pack!

“I bought this in the winter of 2005 and it has been a life saver every year. I don’t know how it has lasted as long as it has, but I plug it in for recharge any time I use it and just keep it in my truck the rest of the time. I have helped dozens of other drivers along the way as well as myself at each year among the 4 cars we own. This is going on 7 years (I just used it again this morning) and it still charges to over 14 volts, and it will still crank a 350 over and over. Get one!” – Nick from the Pacific Northwest

“I have used this unit so many times, I can’t count. I had a bad battery in my truck and had to use the 3-in-1 jump starter almost every morning for a while. I was in denial that it was the truck’s battery, because I had not had the battery that long, so this little unit bailed me out every time. I have also used it to jump start other people’s cars as well and my son’s ATV a few times too until we got him a new battery. I have a 12-volt outlet in the bed of my truck and I keep it plugged in there all the time, so it’s always ready.” – Weekender!! from Atlanta, Ga

So, despite what Blanche Dubois may say, you don’t always need to rely on the kindness of strangers.  Just rely on the power of this awesome 3-in-1 Portable Jump Starter for all your vehicle battery jumping needs.  Get back on the road with up to 20 hours of 12 volt power on just a single charge using this incredible item!

A Top Notch Top Chest to Expand Storage Space

So you got a bunch of new tools for the holidays, ready to tackle any projects that come your way in 2014.  But do you have enough storage space to handle all your new gear?  If you need to add some additional room to your 11 Drawer Roller Cabinet, then consider this new handy item that will expand your tool storage capacity without taking up more room in your workshop or garage.  The 56”, 8 Drawer Roller Cabinet Top Chest from Harbor Freight Tools is super tough and attaches easily to the top of your Roller Cabinet.  With this much storage space available, you might even need to pick up a few more tools just to fill it up!

image_23442

The durable, rustproof Top Chest adds 15,600 cu. inches of storage space for just $500.  That comes out to 31 cu. inches per dollar.  It might be mind-blowing but that’s what makes Harbor Freight stand out from the other guys!  You get the same internally welded joints, heavy duty ball bearing slides, and convenient side carrying handles as with competing brands but at a fraction of the cost!  If you need a little more convincing though, here’s what actual customers thought:

“I am a semi-professional mechanic restoring my own vintage Cadillacs. I need to be able to easily store and find a variety of proprietary tools. This is an exceptional cabinet. I have two of the 56″ base cabinets and bought this upper cab yesterday. The HF I usually frequent was sold out. I got the display unit. Today I am getting another one.” – Bill Caddyshack from Atlanta, GA

“I was thrilled to see they finally had a top box for the 56″ roller. Drawers slide easy, the latches are the same as my bottom box and serve their purpose, and the key locks do their job. The metal is thick and sturdy, and the thing holds tools. Not much more to ask for.” – Cat Mekanik from Omaha, NE

This thing does hold tools, Cat.  Lots of ‘em.  And while it’s designed to fit on top of the 11 Drawer Roller Cabinet, this Top Chest is a fine unit on its own.  And the drawers are lockable too so all of your stuff remains safe and secure when not in use.  So if you’re on the lookout for a top-notch top chest, then look no further than the 56”, 8 Drawer Roller Cabinet Top Chest from Harbor Freight!

Fly High with Your Own RC Airplane

In the more than 100 years since man has been able to fly, we’ve made several significant advancements.  From the early days of the Wright Brothers making history on Kill Devil Hill in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina to the modern international airports that now cover the world, the fascination we have with flight has only grown stronger with time.  Now, we not only use airplanes as modes of transportation, but we also fly remote controlled aircraft and become captains ourselves.  With the holidays fast approaching and the great selection at Harbor Freight Tools, there’s no better time to see what special gifts you can find for your favorite aviation enthusiast.

Harbor Freight offers two radio controlled airplanes that provide tons of fun in the park or backyard.  With the basic version for $39.99, you get an RC airplane that takes flight for up to 20 minutes on a full charge.  Made to withstand rough landings, this sturdy Rechargeable Radio Controlled Airplane comes with replacement propellers so you can make repairs and keep right on flying.  If you want to take your flying fun to the next level, then perhaps the Radio Controlled P51 Mustang Airplane for $99.99 is the better choice for you.  This top-notch RC plane comes pre-built and flies for up to 10 minutes on a full charge.  While you don’t get the flight time of the basic version, you can fly in style with the same design as the famous P51 Mustang!  And don’t forget, no matter which RC airplane you choose, you’ll need to pick up 6 to 8 AA batteries to power the remote control.

image_15090

Here’s what customers had to say about the basic version:

“I bought one of these to try my hand at RC airplanes. When flying one time I crashed it many feet up in a tree. That was the end of that, I thought. However, I saw the plane slowly bouncing down to the ground.  I found it a few minutes later drenched in water and up against a grate in the irrigation ditch. I fished it out, took it home and let it dry out overnight. The next morning I powered it up and was amazed that it sprang to life! The engines fired up and it was good to go for many more flights. Practically indestructible.” –Blaine from Utah

“I have enjoyed my plane for a few years now. I just took it out last night after it had been sitting for a COUPLE OF YEARS. Charged the battery, took it out in CALM evening twilight conditions. Had a 10 minute flight. I have flown radio controlled planes for 25 years and this is a hoot. I was surprised it flew after sitting for so long, unused. Great deal for the money.” – Randy from Parts Unknown

image_13190

And the P51 Mustang:

“This Mustang flies as good as some of my 4 or 500 buck planes, I would recommend some extra battery packs because you will want to fly it all day!” – Nickthestick from Northville, SD

“Very good plane. Got it and flew it out the box. Amazing speeds and handling. Would recommend to anyone. Nice beginner plane. Medium to slow speeds, and looks beautiful in the air. AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” – Bry from Mansfield, Tx
