The tiny little screws inside the action of a firearm can be difficult to reach.

A small hammer can be indispensable for those firearms related tasks that require tapping and light hammer strikes when out in the field, but never seems to be on hand when it's really needed. Fix It Sticks solves this issue with the Brass Hammer Head, which is designed with a steel insert to work with magnetic drivers. The Brass Hammer Head is available now with an MSRP of $8.

Fix It Sticks now offers a 140 Inch-Pound Torque Limiter for fasteners that require substantial torque. The preset torque limiters also use ¼-inch bits and tighten to the user-specified in.-lbs. limit, at which point they spin freely. Fix It Sticks torque limiters will work with any ¼-inch bit driver. The 140 Inch Pound Torque Limiter has an MSRP of $45.
