Rated 5 out of 5Â by Beachie Hands-Free Lighted Magnifier
A friend of mine had lost different bits to his "good" ratcheting screwdriver, and different sizes of his "good" screwdrivers, wrenches, etc. So, for Christmas, I purchased him the 15-in-1 Ratcheting Screwdriver Clear/Black, Kelvin.23 Multi-Tool Black, and the Micro PlusÂ® EX Hand Tool Stainless for him to keep in his kitchen drawer, so he's always got the tool he needs "handy", and the accessory pieces like the drill bits, are stored IN the tool; which makes keeping them organized simpler with fewer steps. He was ecstatic, and has already used them...and loves them!
I also purchased him the Hands-Free Lighted Magnifier
for fine work and art projects that he does. He loved that too! He suggested that the light could be a little brighter; but he's still VERY happy with it..and in his regular workspace he DOES have a brighter work light that should help him see better. He's been using it almost every day since he received it.
I would buy these again for a friend. I think they'd be great for college students, or anyone living in a small space, or who's starting out, and doesn't have a complete tool set.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MotherBearGrammy Where has this been all my life?
EXACTLY as the ad line says, "doing detailed craft work or trying to get out a splinter," or I could add . . . . this is THE tool to use! It's small enough not to take up a lot of space in the sewing/craft area or on the table, but it's mighty enough for just about any need I can think of! Like wheels on suitcases, one wonders why someone didn't come up with this years sooner! No more trying to juggle a needle or tiny scissors + the item being worked on + a magnifying glass. You may not use it a lot, but when you need it, it's PERFECT! One more time, The Container Store scores a hit. Thanks, CS, for your vigilance in searching out useful, well-made, helpful items like this one!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LoneStarFan Wonderful for detail work and aging eyes!
Bought this for myself and my husband. The fine print seems to have gotten smaller through the years, and this brings it right into focus. Also bought several more as Christmas presents for our older friends and family (although it would be great for people of any age doing detail work that requires magnification). The built-in light is especially helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by jeffreyb Buy several!
Older family members likes this to help read fine print. Has several to keep handy at desk, kitchen, etc.
Now I've given them to the rest of family and friends. Everyone finds a use for it. Reading labels, threading needles... I keep one on my office desk and workbench.
Sleek design is much better than old bulky one we have had for years.
Cool bonus that it will stand on its own for two-handed work.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by KeptItAnyway Not Really Hands Free
The hands free function does not work. The magnifier is too heavy. The picture is very deceiving. I kept it anyway

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jessie04 Terrific Item
My husband and I received these magnifiers for christmas from my sister n law..I wasn't sure I'd use mine..however, I've used it every night and so has my husband. The light on it is fabulous for searching details. Everyone should have this item in their house..work..etc..it's wonderful!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JJ84 Where has this product been hiding?
I wish I would have discovered this product a very long time ago. It stands alone and lights the working area, making my small tasks easier and quicker. I love this and will be purchasing more magnifiers for gifts.

Serves my purpose. I love the light and the way you can use it hands free.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by 2ManyThings Fatal flaw
If you try to use the hands-free function of this magnifier, the weight of the batteries in the handle cause the magnifier to collapse. I plan to return it.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by sbhnet Once you get in it, it's great!
The instructions for use and inserting batteries is INSIDE the handle of this magnifier. It took me a while to figure out how to get into it to get to the instructions. Once I did, it told me how to get into it. NOT a big help. Once in with batteries installed, this really is a handy tool. Being able to use both hands while working on a small item is a big help.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MJAtlanta A great tool!
I have had a lighted magnifying glass for years, but the hands-free feature is extremely useful & helpful. I have had mine for only a couple of weeks and have used it at least 3 times. I went back and bought more for stocking stuffers!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Elfie12 Wow! Unbelievable magnification.
This has got to be the best magnifier ever. One look at your cuticle and you will know what I mean. Never saw anything this up close. Splinters gone! And the hand stand lets you remove them yourself. The light is an extra bonus. Great product at a great price.
