#1 Basic Hand Tools 

Every toolbox must have a 1pound hammer, screwdrivers, utility knife, pliers, wrench, and a 25-foot measuring tape. These handy tools can help you fix almost anything from a door hinge to fixing a bike and more. 

#2 Stud Finder 

This helps you when you need to hang a mirror, artwork, and other decor and need to find where the stud is. Don’t forget if there are no studs around, you should always use a drywall anchor to avoid heavy objects from falling after a while. 

#3 The Level 

Every professional project will need to ensure all things hanging is straight and even. Such as hanging a shelf, wall decor, or even just a toilet paper holder. Many apps on your phone have that feature nowadays, so you can always keep have one handy. 

#4 Ladder (6 ft standard) 

You will need a ladder to change a light bulb, a smoke detector battery, or scraping leaves out of the gutter. Don’t just try to stand on a chair or a table, because it can cause use more than just a twisted ankle. 

#5 Safety Equipment 

The basic pieces of equipment such as safety glasses, dust preventative masks, and thicker working gloves. No jobs are too small and even small jobs can cause you a trip to the Emergency Room. Don’t risk it!
