Cool! Glad you liked it. I know it wasn't exactly what you asked for... Thanks!

I thought your post was excellent - they didn't have to be traditional tools, anything you use to make tasks easier. Non traditional tool examples are awesome - some great examples you have that many people may not have thought of :)

Well, must needs, as they say. Adaptive gardening for disability.....

Thank you, great posts.

Thanks @juozas - spork is on my list for the backpack and around the home :)
