As this holiday season is upon us we find ourselves reflecting on our families, friends and all the blessing we are so thankful for. Thank you to all of our listeners for joining us every week with all your great questions and advice.

“Be filled with wonder, be touched by peace and believe in miracles.”

Happy holidays from all of us at On the House

The technology used in conventional sockets and wrenches has been in use since the early 1900’s.

These innovative new tools function as 3 tools in 1: a conventional wrench, a rounded bolt remover, and a hands-free bolt starter. Here are a few frequently asked questions about Grip-Tite.
