PlumbaseINVENT: Len Da HandAugust 22, 2017
For many plumbers, the phrase ‘you often need three hands’, is a familiar one. Len Da Hand, designed and created by Adam Lowe of Shoe String Tools, is that extra helping hand and the perfect, transportable tool you should never be without.
Priced at just £23.95 (Ex. VAT), Len Da Hand offers an extra strong and flexible arm to support with a variety of projects.
The product took Adam six years and a lot of investment to fully develop, but he’s confident he has now launched the perfect tool that can help to support a pipe horizontally and vertically, while the attached steel arm supports pipes close to the joint for hassle-free soldering.
Speaking about when he first came up with the idea, Adam explained, “It was during my own work that I realised I needed an extra hand to be quicker and more efficient. I looked online for a tool to help me but I couldn’t find a single one. That’s when I thought it was time a useful, lightweight tool was created for the industry.”
After rigorous testing to ensure Len Da Hand offered the right amount of strength and durability on all kinds of jobs, Adam is now confident the tool is the perfect ‘handy’ plumber’s mate.
Putting it to the test
With the product being so adaptable, there are endless ways of using it to make your working day easier, and those time-consuming jobs you usually dread can now be quick and simple. Keen to showcase the great ways that Len Da Hand can help with everyday tasks was Pete Booth, (@PBPlumber), who paid us a visit at Plumbase HQ to see how versatile the tool could really be:
