FUSS-FREE RE-FUELLING

We regularly get sent new-fangled ‘gonna-change-the-world’ products, with most of them pretty rubbish and/or un-necessary. However, sometimes, a device comes along that makes you wonder why no-one thought of it before.

Such a product is Pump Pal, a simple but nicely-made product that keeps the fuel pump trigger in its engaged position, taking pressure off your grip while you refuel your vehicle. If you travel in Europe, you’ll note that petrol stations there treat us like adults and keep the pump’s trigger locking mechanism in place. In the UK, however, it’s removed…

IF IT’S GOOD ENOUGH FOR NATO…

The RNHT48 Rivet Nut Hand Tool, launched by MEMFast (Make Ends Meet Limited) four years ago, has now been approved for use by all NATO affiliated organisations worldwide.

TIN WORM KILLER

Rust is a fact of life. To beat it you need to treat it with a product that′s tried, tested and trusted to do the job. Jenolite has been round for 75-years and removes rust from just about anything and is quick and easy to use.

The newly rust-free metal can then be painted between 30 minutes and 24 hours after application, depending on the Jenolite product you choose. Selecting the right product for the right use is important to ensure ease of application and maximum benefits.

Rust really is bad news. When water meets iron two things happen almost immediately. First, More >
