These two"holders" protect your fingers from being damaged while trying to hold small nails, brads, staples, screws and the like. You can also use these tools to "reach" spots that your fingers cannot, so starting the above items in tight areas is a much easier procedure... I made a prototype of this tool a few years ago but never got it made; I'm glad these folks did, so I could buy theirs... One improvement would be for the smaller tool to fit inside the larger tool saving some storage space.

One reviewer questioned the necessity of this tool. Since that goes to the heart of why I purchased, I'll respond to that premise. Of course, you can always use your fingers, so a nail setter is obviously not necessary. In fact, no similar tool, including that reviewer's recommended needle nose pliers, is truly necessary. However, there are some advantages.

Like needle nose pliers, a nail setter can protect your fingers. Moreover, a nail setter is faster to load up than needle nose pliers (good for repetitive jobs) and, since the nail is held by magnetics instead of the teeth of a tool, offers no resistence to the movement of the nail into your project when struck. Latter can also protect both the nail (scratches, etc) and your tool (wear on the teeth, etc). Besides, I'd rather ding up this nail setter than a tool intended for another purpose. Dings on a nail setter often cause no real harm (to it's simple function), while the same on another tool could destroy it (jaw alignment on pliers, etc).

So, while a nail setter is not necesary, it is practical - in roughly the same manner as a hammer is more practical than needle nose pliers for hammering nails.

Clearly one is always free to continue using fingers, pliers, or whatever. I certainly won't criticize those choices. These nail setters (ThumbSaver TS001 Magnetic) are my choice. Others have already commented about the sturdiness, the price is decent enough for the pair (standard & mini), and they do serve a purpose well.

A Kid's Review on August 16, 2008
Great for holding nails in those hard to get places. Equally as great for using small nails that are hard to get a hold on. Great idea and great product.

I got this hoping to avoid hitting my fingers and thumb while trying to hang pictures. While these are magnetic and hold the nail somewhat, for picture hanging, I'm better off using my fingers. This actually increased safety hazards rather than reduce them. The nail would be attracted to the magnet, but it wasn't at all strong enough to hold it tightly in place, so it would slip around when hit. I was extremely disappointed with it. Maybe it works better on flat surfaces rather than walls, but I think it would still have the issue of not being able to hold the nail perfectly still.

I purchased this tool (ThumbSaver) just a short time ago but have already found several uses for it in the on going process of home maintenance. Since one can easily see from the write up what the tool is used for there is no need to explain the obvious so I will simply say that the tool does exactly what it was designed to do and does it well. If you have even an occasional nail or screw to drive I recommend the purchase of the ThumbSaver.

Overall I am very pleased with this tool. The magnets are strong enough to hold even the thinnest nail or staple. I would not recommend it for screws, however. Even though it is advertised to hold them, I tried one on low speed with my drill and it quickly began shredding the metal off the arms and magnet.

The magnet is strong and holds any nail larger than 5/8 inches well. However, I bought the tool for nailing jagged frame hangers on the back of picture frames. These come supplied with nails that are roughly a quarter inch long and that is too short for even the smaller magnetic thumbsaver. Going back to comb method. Otherwise a good product.

This is one of those tools that you wish you had invented yourself. I've hung several items and it made hanging things easer. It kept my hand out of danger and I like it. This is worth every cent I spent.
