5 Tools That Can Make You Better at Your Job

By: CableOrganizer®

There's plenty to be said for dressing for success, but if you're an electrician, general contractor, carpenter, or other hands-on professional, it all comes down to skill — and the tools you equip yourself with. When time is of the essence and there's no room or budget for error, here are 5 different tools and components that will help knock out tasks quickly and efficiently — and make you look even better at your job.



Electrically speaking, there aren't many things that are less impressive than visible gaps and ragged drywall edges peeking out from behind receptacle wall plates. They're ugly, can present electrical hazards — and worst of all — are just plain unprofessional. Maintain the quality of your work — and your good reputation — by making perfectly sized, perfectly level junction box cutouts every time.

Sound tricky? It's easier than you think. All you need is a pencil, drywall saw — and most importantly — Klein Tools® Lighted Torpedo Billet Level. It comes with LED high-definition vials that can be read with ease under virtually any lighting condition. The large and bright vials are available in three angles including level, 45 and, 90 degrees. The level’s body comes in a professional-grade style — and high-visibility orange color — that is easily seen on conduit. With this handy tool, you’ll be able to cut holes completely concealed by faceplates — the way they're supposed to be.

Eyeballing drywall cutouts? Leave that to the amateurs.
