What will you fix with your free toolkit from The Trusts?


It’s “Giving Back” time again at The Trusts.

Well, it’s always “Giving Back” time because we distribute around a million dollars each year in sponsorships, donations and gifts, plus all the good things we give back in other ways, but in this case it’s time for another gift to every household in West Auckland.

On the last occasion it was life saving fire alarms and now it’s a handy 24 piece mini toolkit in its own convenient case.

Why? It’s obvious really. We asked around whether most people could find the tool they needed when they needed it. The overwhelming answer was, “No”.

We also asked, if people do have tools, do they have them in a handy case that can be slipped in a kitchen or desk drawer, in the glove box, tossed into the caravan, kept beside the cat flap in case of inquisitive boxer dogs, or at a pinch slipped into a pocket or handbag?

Once again the answer was “No”.

That was all the evidence we needed. Survey over, we sprang into action and sourced enough handy toolkits in their own convenient carry case, to give one to every house in West Auckland.

It’s not the sort of toolkit that you’ll build a house with (or even a deck for that matter), or turn out a re-conditioned motor for the family car, but it is ideal for the thousand small jobs that crop up almost on a daily basis.

There’s a 17cm long nosed plier, a spanner, a measuring tape, a screwdriver with adaptor/ handle, two clock screwdrivers, one Philips head and one flat-head, four sockets - 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm plus extender bar, bits, an adaptor and three Allen keys.

Allen keys? You know. Those small, L shaped, hexagonal bars with one end that fits inside the matching head of bolts and nuts. With the short end inside the nut, you pull on the long end and it unscrews the nut or bolt. These are very handy because Allen nuts and bolts are used in a lot of places around the home, often in furniture. A lot of furniture gets a bit loose and floppy with use. To fix that, what you have to do is find the right Allen key and do up the nuts and bolts
holding the furniture together and hey presto, the furniture is as good as new again. Now, thanks to The Trusts you will have some Allen keys that are easy to find again!
