To follow on from our Father’s Day gift guide I am sharing some great products from TEC Accessories, their reviews and a chance to get your hot little hands on them. Not every dad is a socks and jocks type of guy and as much as they may put on the big smile when they are handed the pencil tin covered in paddle pop sticks they would often prefer something a bit more manly and practical. TEC Accessories have you (and your dad) covered.
The first draw card to the TEC Accessories Glow Fob is that it glows! Who doesn’t love stuff that glows in the dark? This deep seeded
obsession interest began when I was a child. Every time we went to a show, a fair or a rodeo, if they had glow sticks I absolutely had to have one. The simple joy of having a bright coloured light to wave around provided hours of endless entertainment. The TEC-S3 does exactly that (minus me spinning in circles trying to make words with the glow aura). While it is only small; the sleek and stylish Glow Fob is perfect for every dad whether he is the adventure man, camper, office worker, policeman or a plumber, farmer, writer, etc. It glows, it’s fun, it’s unique ~ what else needs to be said?
Built with exceptional craftsman ship and made from stainless steel it puts out a satisfactory glow that can last for up to 12 hours. For the adventurers out there the glow pellet can be removed via a O ring at the bottom and replaced with a make your own kit if you want to use Tritium. The glow reminds me of a radioactive glow (like in The Simpsons) and it’s almost certain to be zombie proof for the preppers out there. The glow fob can be added to anything that you may need to find in the dark like car keys, torch/flashlight, fishing gear or even putting on kids jackets when camping. As you can see in the picture above the brightness and glow intensity is nothing to be disappointed about.
The only down side is it needs to be charged in light with sun light giving the best results. So if you can store the fob near some form of light during the day there is no down side. There are a few different options available: $18 aluminium, $23 stainless steel and $36 for titanium.
The Centipede ruler is Titanium and Titanium is awesome!!! Its 8cm of effortless measuring. I cannot count the amount of times I’ve measured something against my finger and tried to remember roughly the length of what I needed. I thought how often could I possibly use an 8cm ruler and the answer is simply a lot more than I ever would of imagined. Now that I have it hanging with my keys it takes away my
more often than not wrong guess work. Did I mention it’s made from Titanium? Measuring in at 87mm long and 4mm wide; there are reference points at every 2mm and each cm making it uncomplicated to use. It has a strong and solid feel and like everything TEC Accessories its top shelf quality. The Centipede ruler is also available in imperial measurements (known as the Inch Worm) if you or more importantly dad like to kick it old school. At a mere $21 you absolutely need one of these cool bits of gear.
P-7 suspension clip
This is a small clip at only 4cm (yes I measured it with my centipede) and it does exactly what it was intended for. It holds your keys or whatever you decide to hang from it tightly to your pocket allowing them to nicely hang and know they’re not going to stab in to your leg when you sit down. I have also found it exceptionally great to locate my keys from the Pandora’s box my wife calls a hand bag on the occasions I ask her to look after them for me. It’s a great addition to your favourite key ring thanks to it’s minimalist design. The P-7 Suspension clip is made of spring tempered stainless steel so you can trust it will hold its shape and be reliable for years to come. The quality is as usual, excellent. $12 for one or a twin pack for $20.
Crafted with polished stainless steel with 3 speed holes gives it a smooth quality look. They are small and very easy to use clips. Consisting of a strong spring gate that has a good amount of resistance and is wide enough for my fat fingers to simply attach and detach from my key ring. The spring gate sits snugly in a guard making it impossible for anything to unintentionally slide underneath it and be lost. The Python Clip can be used for almost anything that you can think of; I use these for a small pocket knife which I obviously can’t leave on my keys at all times and on a usb so I don’t have to have my keys hanging from my computer every time I need to use it. They say small things amuse small minds ~ say what you will because I absolutely love them! You can purchase them for $5.25 ea or $5 ea if you buy 3 or more.
Split ring kit
The Split Ring Kit gives you 3 or 4 of the most popular sizes (depending which kit you choose) of split rings for adding accessories to your keyring. With the sizes ranging from small rings to tiny ones, these kits will give you endless combinations to add anything you can think of to your keys whilst keeping a nice proportional tidy look. They are a great quality and thickness for their size and have good metal memory to spring back to their original shape once spread and added to whatever you need. Retailing for only $3 they are an absolute bargain!
Snap ring pliers
Initially I didn’t think I would need these snap ring pliers but once you realise how awesomely small some of the split rings are they are a must have. If you’ve ever tried to put a tiny split ring on anything you will know how frustrating it can be and not to mention the longer and wider you have it spread open the sloppier the end product looks, no one wants a split ring that is bent out of shape hanging from their keys. Realistically at only $3 its money well spent even if you only use it once.
They are well made quality pliers with a simple design. The wedge on one side makes it easy to spread split rings open and grip them enough to start twisting the ring on to anything your heart desires.
TEC Accessories provide great quality, service you can rely on and they ship world wide so everyone can enjoy their products.
