Handy Tool Kit Series – Metal Files

Lamar-Hunt-Jr.-Metal-Files-300x225Metal files may not be the most vital tools in your Handy Tool Kit, but they are quite nice in a jam.  The big reason they come in handy with rentals is to prevent injuries.  Sometimes, you may find a screw that has been boogered up from too much use.  The tiny metal protrusions can injure someone, especially a child.  That is bad for business.  A metal file quickly takes down the burrs on screws and other metal objects which prevent injuries.  And, a metal file can be used to file down strike plates when a house shifts.  By filing down the strike plate, the deadbolts or strike can then catch.  This little adjustment prevents calling a carpenter to adjust the hinges.  In addition to solving problems at your rental units, metal files can come in handy for repairing or adjusting your tools.  They are small and take up little weight.  Founder/Managing Partner Lamar Hunt Jr. says to give them a try.  You might be glad you did.  For more real estate tips, see our blog at  http://lorettoproperties.com/.  You can also call us at 913-236-2902 if you have a property to sell.
