A Fun Gadget/Tool Every Man Will LOVE!

My Works For Me Wednesday tip this week is a gift idea for a gadget-minded-man on your list.

My husband recently got something similar to this temperature gun to check for energy leaks around the house.  

It’s an infrared thermometer that takes the surface temperature of whatever you point the little red laser sight/light at. 

 

It has helped him to locate a couple of drafty places that we were able to plug up.  And when it’s six little degrees out, that’s a pretty good thing.

Besides being a helpful tool, it’s also pretty fun to point at everything on God’s green earth.  I mean, come on, a laser gun with a purpose??  Who wouldn’t love that??  Just ask my husband.  I’m surprised he didn’t take it to work with him today.  Lol!

There are all makes and price ranges.  This is just one example of many on Amazon.  (I’m not an affiliate, btw.  It’s just an easy point of reference for me to show you.)

The Technical Details Of This Particular One:

  • Take accurate temperature readings with this handheld gun
  • Red laser pointer for precise aiming
  • Measures in Celsius or Fahrenheit (Range: -32 to +380 C / +26 to +716 F)
  • Auto Shut-off & Low Battery Indicator
  • Powered by one 9-volt battery (included

This is the type of thing I wish I would known about and bought for him.  :)  Oh well.  At least I can pass on the tip!! 

My husband recently got one of these

My hubby and I were just going over our "drafty" places lastnight. lol

If we had one of these... I wouldn't have had to put my hand all over the door facings and windows.
