WHAT DOES THE IE DADDY SAY?:

While I definitely know my way around a hammer, drill and a few power tools…heck, I even have my own tool kit. I knew the best review would come from the guy who was able to use it. Therefore, let me turn over my forum to The IE Daddy (aka The Professor of Protection).

Here is review on the ImmiX:

The velcro release is great for one-hand grabs when you literally only have one hand available. This is a really practical and versatile tool.  I found several uses for it when I recently installed a new dishwasher at home. The straight blade was perfect for trimming a few electrical wires and for cutting a plastic water line. I also was able to easily unscrew ( and screw in) several small screws on the front end of the dishwasher. The screw driver attachments are great because there is a lot of variety in the screw heads and the holder on the end of the handle is magnetic, so the heads didn’t fall out when in use.I didn’t get to use the “squeeze wrench” on the dishwasher but it worked extremely well on the back tire of 10-speed bike.  Overall, I would rate this tool as a solid, durable, quality product that has a lot to offer! And, one of the best features about the quality of the Loggerhead is the fact that it’s made in the good ol’ USA! Yeah!”

So…there you have it. Father’s day is right around the corner and this is a great gift to present to your husband or father.  Make them smile this Father’s day. Give them a Loggerhead ImmiX.
