Here is a quick tip on protecting your tools from theft or getting mixed up with others with the same tool. Borrow some of your favorite finger nail polish (boys, I know you have a favorite color too) and put a dab in an inconspicuous place such as the inside of the battery cradle.

I’ve also seen contractors take the opposite approach and spray paint a sizable portion of their tools with an obnoxious, unique color. I think the attempt is at making the tools as ugly and unattractive as possible to would be thieves.

I prefer finger nail polish…on my tools.
