Home Zone: Fix students up with dorm repair kit

It may be the first time, or the second ... or the third?

The kids are going off to school, or moving into their first abode. You want to make sure they have what it takes to get, and keep, the place in shape.

The 21 Piece Dormitory Tool Kit is the perfect starter since Dad's hammer and Mom's tape measure won't be within reach anymore.

This kit, from GreatNeck Tools, includes:

- 4-in-1 screwdriver

- Two types of pliers

- Adjustable wrench

- Hammer

- Level

- Tape measure

- Scissors

- Electrical tape

- Flashlight

- Assorted fasteners to hang curtains, pictures, etc.

- Utility knife

- Compact carrying case

The whole set weighs just 5 pounds and retails for $30.

For more information, call 800-457-0600 or visit www.greatnecksaw.com.


You always make sure there is a spare tire in the car trunk and gas in the tank. Keeping a flashlight especially suited for cars in the console is just as important.

There will always be occasions to use it.

Whether you are searching for something under the front seat, need to check under the hood, or just need some extra light to read a map ... you need a flashlight.

And, you don't need one with dead batteries at a time you need it most ... on the road. Or worse, a dark backcountry road.

GreatLITE, a brand of GreatNeck Tools, offers a car flashlight that allows users to never be concerned about batteries because it doesn't need them! It is designed to easily and conveniently recharge using your 12-volt car cigarette lighter plug.

This flashlight uses a 1-watt, super-bright LED light that is 10 times brighter than a standard LED, issuing up to 45 lumens of light.

Rechargeable in 20 minutes, it then runs continuously for three hours.

An added bonus, for those of us who are directionally challenged, there is a compass embedded on the flashlight end cap.

The flashlight retails for $30.

For more information, call 800-457-0600 or visit www.greatnecksaw.com.


Things can get a bit boring when it comes to water. Why not change things up a little bit and put some color in your life.

LED faucet lights from ThinkGeek attach to the end of your faucet and universal adapters are included. When the water is turned on and flows through the "magic chamber," it simply turns on the LED array and illuminates the stream with soothingly powerful hues.

Two types are available: Blue only runs blue while the Blue/Red will change from blue to red when the water temperature hits 89 degrees.

The Blue faucet retails for $13 and the combo is $20. Batteries are pre-installed plus a set of spare G13-A style watch batteries are also included.

For more information, call 888-433-5788 (GEEKSTUFF), 703-293-6299 or visit www.thinkgeek.com.

Maggie Reed can be reached by e-mail, at 619-718-5821; or P.O. Box 120190, San Diego, CA 92112.
