When it comes to securing loads in the bed of a truck or on the roof of a car or SUV, no other single device is as secure and effective as a ratchet strap. Shock cords are good, but ratchet straps let you determine the desired tension via a simple ratcheting mechanism, and there are no knots to come loose as with a rope. Once you have them, you’ll find numerous additional uses for them in the garage, home and even on the boat. 

This four-pack of 15-foot long Haulmaster straps is an incredible value at the regular price, even better at $7.99.

Once you’ve experienced the ease of lifting a vehicle with a floor jack, there’s no going back. 

Unlike bottle, scissor or old-school bumper jacks, modern floor jacks like the Dayton three-ton low-profile unit allow you to position it ideally under the vehicle and, thanks to its rapid pump-action, lift the vehicle with just a few pumps. The low-profile slides under cars with limited ground clearance and the wheels allow you to easily roll it out of the way when not in use. If you’re still not convinced, check out our floor jack roundup for more information.

Most manufacturers recommend lug nuts to be tightened to a specific torque setting when mounting or replacing a wheel, but few DIY’ers own a quality torque wrench. Additionally, most fasteners on modern cars also adhere to specific torque settings, making this torque wrench a perfect gift for mechanics of any skill level. 

A basic analog torque wrench will suffice, but this Quinn 3.8-inch drive wrench features a digital readout and an audio alert to signify you’ve hit the desired torque. It has a 5-degree arc swing that makes it easy to work in tight spaces and is adjustable to set torque from 5 to 100 foot-pounds. It’s a slick setup, and Black Friday is the perfect time to add one to your toolbox.

Handheld laser thermometers are a great tool to have around the garage and house to help you diagnose and remedy problems. Used by aiming the device at the desired component—say a brake rotor, circuit board, exhaust pipe or A/C vent—you can quickly determine if something that should be cool is hot or vice-versa, pinpointing the root of the issue. Plus, they are fun to mess with by taking the temperature of everything in your house as long as you remember they are for industrial, automotive, electrical and HVAC use only, and not suitable for human or medical use. This Black Friday deal on the Ames Instruments non-contact laser thermometer is hard to beat.
