Because it is handy, useful and precise, I like to carry a small good quality 6" rule in the chest pocket of my apron. The problem is that each time I bend over to reach for something low, the ruler falls out on the floor.
I realized that if I keep it in the same pocket as the telescoping magnet I use to catch those screws that too often fall on the floor, it also keeps the rule in place.
Let me tell you, it's worth the money spent to save my back... and my temper. I wish it could also catch my glue bottle's red cap!
Have a great day!
