Stereotype or no, any pro plumber or carpenter will tell you: nobody wants to see your bare ass — at least no one who’ll pay your for plumbing or capentry work. A good pair of suspenders’ll keep your pants — and profits — up. And if you happen to show your Independence Day spirit in the process, that’s a good thing, no?
Note: In competition with our friends at The Hardware Aisle, we’re posting lots of patriotic tools today and tomorrow. Look for a post on Wednesday (the 4th) where you can vote for your favorite. And don’t forget to submit your favorite patriotic tools! If your suggestion is the reader favorite, we’ll send you a tool from the test pile — something nice.
This pair of red-white-and-blue suspenders comes from McGuire-Nicholas and feature 2″ wide adjustable straps and heavy-duty nickel-plated clips. Best of all, they cost only $5 — so you won’t feel bad if you wear ’em just a few days a year.
Of course, if you’re more the Mork from Ork type — or like the idea of suspenders that look like tape measures — McGuire-Nicholas has you covered.
