More unique and useful gadgets from the National Hardware Show 2015, Las Vegas.
I see few people wearing safety eyewear when using power tools and even less using safety eyewear AND earplugs. Well there’s one new product that can provide both hearing protection & safety eyewear. It’s from ReadyMax and it’s called SoundShield. This product features retractable earplugs integrated within the temple pieces of safety glasses. They offer an anti-fog & scratch resistant lens. The company says their ANSI impact rated lenses absorb 99% of UV rays. As you’ll see in the video, they are available in many varieties including a model that fits over prescription glasses, a 2X magnification model, and more. Price is around $19.99 for most, $24.99 for a couple of the designer models.

Also from ReadyMax, tools that feature a built-in high-intensity LED. It turns on with a touch of a button and shines through the jaws of a pliers or adjustable tool to stay focused on the work surface. No more fumbling for a flashlight or needing an extra pair of hands when working in tight, low-light conditions. The company says their sealed HubLight is waterproof, oil proof and chemical proof. You can easily replace the three standard #392 watch batteries and the high-intensity narrow beam LED is rated at 10,000 hours. Retail is about $25 for each of the 7 new LED tools.
