Measures 11” x 3-3/4”, has an estimated 50,000-hour lifetime. Please note, these do not work with dimmers. ETL Certified.

Loops For Nails

Get a grip on your nail clip. These 3” long nail clippers have finger and thumb loops built into the arms. Called EZ-Grip, they're much easier for anyone to hang onto, period—but they’re also extra-good for anyone with arthritic hands or other grip issues. When you’re done clipping, they fold back down for storage, just like standard clippers do.

Someone goofed which means you get a deal. These shiny 8GB USB flash drives have a little misprint which we slapped a sticker over. Plus they’re attached to a keyring so you can keep it attached to your keys, bag or maybe a necklace if you’re feeling quirky. 8GB is more than enough to hold more than 5,000 images, 1,800 MP3 files or one really, really, really long word document. And at this price you can afford to fill a desk drawer with them.
