Thread: Halfords heads-up

    Halfords heads-up

    I was after a tool roll to store some of my tools in for keeping on my boat and wandering around Halfords yesterday I came across this tool bag:



    It was sat on a shelf in the tools section but didn't have a price on it, so I asked an assistant how much it was and was told 20. That seemed ok so I said I'd buy it, only to be told that I'd have to go and get a boxed one from the other side of the aisle. Off I went and found the boxes, however they held a range of tools already inside the bag.

    Taking one back to the assistant I said I could only find them with tools included, whereupon she said they only came as a kit - and the 20 she'd quoted was the price for the package!









    Seems a bargain to me.

    They were available for about 8 quid a few weeks/months ago - stacking a Halford's car club discount with another voucher. I found it on Hot UK Deals.

    I picked a couple up - one for the car, and one for the boat. They've come in handy a few times already.

    Decent set for the money tbh.

    That seems like good value.

    Seems a bit silly to duplicate the 11-13mm sockets when 14, 15, 17 and 19 would be really useful.
