If so, you don’t have to bend paper clips to hang stuff from them. You could just buy a bunch of these 2" white plastic ring thingies that twist onto the 1” tracks that hold most ceiling tiles. A 1-3/8” dia tab with a 7/8” dia hole sits perpendicular to the ceiling, ready for whatever you want to suspend from it.
Direct from the US military (says US right on the flap), this small olive drab cotton pack measures 10" x 9" x 5-1/2" with a 9" flap across the top, 6” side flaps to protect the contents, straps to close it, a clear plastic card holder, a carrying handle, and straps and eye-holes to attach it to a larger pack.
The ball casters are great swivelers and quite snazzy looking, too. Seen on your better chairs everywhere. These are brass plated on 1-1/2" square mounting plates with 3/16" holes at the corners. You pick the 2" or 2-1/2" dia versions.
24VDC 5A regulated, floor-mounted power supply from Megmeet. Output is via a 4-1/2-foot cord with a 4-pin KPPX connector, which looks to us like a mini-DIN plug. Has overvoltage protection, current-limiting and will need an IEC computer-style input cord. Switching type with the pinout marked on the 6-1/4” x 2-1/2” x 1-3/8” housing.
Orienteering fans will love this nylon camo map case. Opens to 27" x 19" with a clear vinyl window on one side and a hook-n-loop flapped pouch measuring 8-1/2" x 5-1/4" x 1-1/4 with (4) pen sleeves on the other. Folds up to 13-3/4” x 6-1/4” x 1-1/4” with a lanyard clip for carrying. Surplus factor: the clear vinyl is smudged with lines of what look like blue lettering that migrated onto it. Non-orienteerers will find it handy for travel storage for small items.
This crimping tool from Gardner Bender® works when making your own data or phone cables. Suitable for use with RJ-11 and -45 plugs. You’ll get (10) and (5) of these, respectively. Tool is 7" long and includes a wire stripper and cutter. Package has wiring diagrams on the back, so don’t toss it.
Stop squinting. This oversized folding loupe measures 3-1/4” x 2” x 1/2” thick in a boteh shape. (Oh, alright, a boteh is the name for that teardrop-ish thing in paisley patterns--it’s Persian for leaf or bush or something.) Lens is 1-3/4" dia acrylic 2X with a very bright white LED powered by included button-cell batteries. On a short chain and slip-ring.
Mind your binders with these colorful three-ring versions, and unlike most of our binders these don’t have any misprints on them! You pick the sky blue binder with 1” D-rings, the Dodger blue (OK, royal blue) with 2” rings or the truly fetching chartreuse baby, also with 2” rings All measure 11-1/2” x 10-1/2”.
Leave your lights on much? Or maybe you live in a place like we do, where January means weather so cold the squirrels explode in the trees. Either way, you're a bunch better off with the 1000 QuickCable 12-Volt Heavy Duty Rescue™ Booster. About the size of a construction worker's lunch box (15" x 14" x 9" and weighs 20 lbs), it packs a lot of punch—1000 peak amps and 500 amps of cold-cranking power. Includes: illuminated clamps; underhood and emergency flasher lights; 55” cables for reaching over fenders; a reverse-polarity circuit that eliminates reverse hookup connections; 12-volt accessory port; easy plug-in AC recharging; charging and full-charge lights; storage compartment for tools and gloves. Beats standing around on the side of road watching for a truck on the horizon, we think. So easy an English major can use it.
