Fix It Sticks are one of the good ones. Brian Davis, the guy behind Fix It Sticks, sent me some early prototypes of his product. They work and they are clever. They can get into tight places, provide great leverage and are light and compact to carry. His current incarnations of the sticks are even better than the prototypes. He's already met and surpassed his initial Kickstarter goal and he's moving on to a full production run.
Brian does a better job than I would in explaining Fix It Sticks, so click on this link and read about them and watch the video (the video is funny as well). There are still ten days to go in the Kickstarter and Brian has some more cool ideas that can make Fix It Sticks even better. Brian recently quit his day job to focus full time on Fix It Sticks. I like seeing someone with enough faith in their idea to make a big bet on it. Fix It Sticks are a bet worth making.
Keep 'em rolling,
