SOUND OFF: What’s your favorite tool?

Hey installers, I know there’s one tool you reach for more than any other. For me it’s a 7/16″ wrench, which is the perfect tool for securing RG6 cable connections. But for you it might be a compression tool, a meter, or just a good old hammer!

Did you know Solid Signal sold tools?

That’s right, you’ll find thousands of them at Solid Signal. From simple tools for homeowners to the fanciest spectrum analyzers, you’ll find them all. It doesn’t matter if you’re a weekend DIYer or if you depend on your tools to help you make a living. Solid Signal has tools at every price range and you’re sure to find everything you need.

Believe it or not, you’ll find tools at Solid Signal that you won’t find at other sites, even that big one you shop at for everything else. We have established vendor relationships that let us offer specialty tools direct to the consumer in ways that other sites just can’t.

But which tool really makes you happy?

If you’re not a professional installer, the question may seem silly to you. But if you depend on that toolbox of yours to make a living, there’s a tool you’re particularly proud of. Maybe it’s a hammer that was passed down from your dad, or a screwdriver that got you out of a pickle. Maybe it’s a piece of test equipment that no one else has and that always gets noticed.

Tools are really personal to us. I know this, because I hate to loan mine to anyone else and I hate using other people’s. I bet you’re the same. If so, tell us about it!
