Thanks OP. It's a good deal for those who start out in life or rent. Or maybe as a backup set.

However, it's sad to see a reputable Canadian brand, known for their quality tools, go the way of the made-in-China race to the bottom in quality just for low prices to attract the ignorant consumers. If there's one kind of products where you don't want to cheap out, that'd be hand tools.

It looks like they counted the fasteners as part of the 134 pieces...

Some company has been making this set for a long while now, at least 30 years. My grandmother had it, and its garbage.

Real shame what has happened to fuller

I keep something like this in the car. This particular set is a bit weird since I don't know when I'd ever need a mobile hack saw, but for $15?
I just paid $30 for a "better" kit a few months ago. Totally would have bought this instead if it was around.

Decent needle-nose pliers $8
Lufkin/decent tape measure $8

and then down the road add Canadian Tire's 61-piece security bit set for $10 when it's on sale
That's almost 3 times the price, and doesn't even have half of what this set has. The whole point is that for $15 you have a basic starter toolkit for emergencies.

Great deal for anyone who needs basic fixing tools.
By no means is this intended for any serious type of work, but it will be more than enough for 75% of people (arbitrary percentage)

Exactly. @soupmaster666's set doesn't even have a socket set (not that this one has a large selection, I'd prefer metric and imperial), allen keys, tiny screwdrivers, or a tape measure.
This set even includes some Torx. Counting that, his set is over 3x the price.
There's no argument his is better, but this is an emergency kit that gets used once a year when you need a tool.

At the risk of looking stupid, where is the "mobile hack saw" in OP's picture? I'm expecting to see a blade with teeth and plastic or wooden handle.

If you look at all the pics on Amazon, you'll see it in the 2nd photo.

It's comprised of 2 pieces: A blade in the right hand section near the hinge and the red handle dealie in the middle section on the right beside the hammer.

People who buy this crap should just stay away from tools period.

Why?

I'd rather have crap tools rather than none at all, especially considering that most people that buy these only use them once a year.
This is $15 and covers a whole butt ton of use cases.
Even buying a decent hammer and a screwdriver would cost more than this. For the amount of times this will get used, it'd be silly to buy "good" tools.

Thanks. I guess I should have checked the Amazon page. The description even says hacksaw. The 2nd picture makes it look like a BBQ lighter, so I probably still wouldn't have thought it was one.

I have over a thousand dollars worth of tools in the garage, but I don't regret buying this because of how compact and portable it is. For 15$ I don't care if it all breaks on me

If you are going to rely on this sure to fail kit as a back up, then it will just be a false sense of preparedness.

The metal alloy in these cheap sets is softer then the screws and bolts they are meant to be used on, will strip and cause more problems.

These are why handipersons make money. Ask any professionals if they would trust they lively hood on these types of tools.

Better to have a CAA membership.
