The HandyBand is a black wristband with a series of narrow magnets embedded into it. Elastic between each of the magnets keeps the wristband relatively small in circumference initially but easily expandable to fit around any size wrist. The magnets grab onto nuts bolts and assorted other items so you no longer need to crawl on the ground looking for the screws that fell on the floor.

You MUST check out the promo video of it! I mean… Can’t you just hear this same voice saying, “Now how much would YOU expect to pay for this? $50? $25? $15? Well order today and you can get the HandyBand for just one easy payment of $12.99!”

(Actually through this link you can get one for just $7.50. [affiliate link]
