Why Hand Tool Essentials?

Free Shipping!

Get quality hand tools delivered right to your door step. Most of our products arrive within 4 to 5 days for shoppers in the continental United States. Plus, if you order on a Monday or a Tuesday, we’ll do our best to have your hand tools delivered in time for the weekend.

No Sales Tax

Regardless of where you live, we pick up the sales tax on all purchases. DYI projects are already challenging enough so we figured you could use a break here. Lastly, there’s no order limit for this policy so tool purchases large & small both qualify.

Skip the Home Improvement Store

No dodging fork lifts, running into aisle closures, or waiting in long lines. We won’t make you walk through the lumber yard or nursery just to grab an Allen wrench. Plus, tools are our specialty. We only sell tools that we’ve tested so you can have confidence in the quality of our products.
