There are a couple of things that you should probably never get your dad for Father’s Day: another tie and a gift certificate to the Hair Club for Men. Somehow I just don’t think either of those would convey the right message. I feel your pain, though, because I too lack a penchant for gift giving and it has bitten me in the ass on several occasions. That’s why I am here to give you a shot at winning some great stuff for that most famous of paternal party days. (And possibly a couple of good ideas of what to get him.)
Stanley® has been around forever and their trademark yellow and black tools can be found in garages and on jobsites all over the country. They didn’t want to be left out of the Father’s Day festivities so they have come to the party bearing a couple of guaranteed winners: the SquidBrite™ Worklight and the Stanley 300-Amp Instant Battery Jump Starter system.
The Stanley SquidBrite Worklight is sure to be a gadget that your dad will be using for years. How many times have you dropped your flashlight into the engine compartment or lost a screw because you couldn’t see what you were doing? You can make the typical trouble light a thing of the past with this goodie.
The SquidBrite solves this problem with its pivoting light and flexible rubber grip stand can wraps around just about anything or sits securely on uneven surfaces. Magnetic backing holds tight to metal surfaces, and the light detaches from the base to fit into tight spots. This thing is not only rugged it’s bright: it’d loaded with 20 ultra-bright LEDs. Perfect for camping and surprising deer. No need to purchase batteries, either. It’s rechargeable.
I’m sure that your dad has needed a jump on occasion. On the freeway, in the garage, sometimes the location can make it pretty difficult and being prepared is one lesson you can count on. The Stanley 300-Amp Instant Battery Jump Starter is one gift that will ensure that your dad has juice wherever he goes. And the first time he doesn’t have to wait an hour for AAA you’ll earn valuable points with the old man.
The Instant Battery Jump Starter not only has the Viagra effect on your dead battery, but its loaded with extras like an emergency light that pivots 270° and USB ports so you can charge your electronics. You also don’t have to worry about your dad blowing himself up by connecting the cables to the wrong terminals. The Stanley Jump Starter has reverse polarity protection. If the cables are hooked up wrong, it beeps to let you know. And if you have a flat tire (think slow leak, not knife to the sidewall) this baby also has a built-in compressor.
The Stanley SquidBrite Worklight retails for $29.99 and the Instant Battery Jump Starter system will set you back about $40. But if you are the gambling type when it comes to getting your hands on Dad’s Day doodads, just enter your email addy here and we will select two winners at random on June 17th. One of you will get your greasy hands on the SquidBrite Worklight and the other will walk away with the Instant Battery Jump Starter system. We’ll decide who gets what, so don’t even ask.
