Tools for Aging DIYers

Baby boomers aren’t slowing down but, as they age, they’ll need tools to help them complete maintenance projects as well as fulfill their DIY dreams. In response, manufacturers and designers are making products that are easier to use. Power tools come in lighter weight housings, with lithium batteries that weigh half as much as traditional battery packs while offering just as much torque. Tools come with nonslip, anti-vibration and ergonomic handles that make them easier to hold.

Other tools are also being manufactured from lighter materials, including hammers like the new Ball Pang Hammer from SOGS Corp that is light but strong, using ball bearings to distribute the impact, minimize recoil and reduce stress on the user. The hammer comes with three interchangeable heads for working with wood, metal, brick and stone. The new hammer will be launched at the 2019 National Hardware Show®.
