Tool-Rank Pick: Anchor Electronics Heat Shrink Tubing Kit Hothttp://www.tool-rank.com/media/listing/photos/thumbnail/300x300s/5f/fb/e9/AE-heatshrink-87-1374007022.jpg
A few years ago I started picking out tools that I liked and gave them some extra recognition, these are known as Tool-Rank Picks. The list of Tool-Rank Picks is rather short and up until now contained only tools, but today I break tradition and add a consumable to the list; Anchor Electronics Heat Shrink Tubing.
If you didn't know, heat shrink tubing is used to insulate and protect electrical wires and components, similarly to how electrical tape is used. But unlike electrical tape, it is clean, professional looking, and lasts over time. To use, you just have to slip heat shrink over your exposed wire, apply heat, and watch as it shrinks to half its size to conform snugly around your wires.
Heat shrink is awesome stuff to use, but it is the complete Anchor Electronics Heat Shrink Tubing kit that makes it a Tool-Rank Pick. Anchor Electronics put together a package that contains 6 of the most commonly used heat shrink sizes, and gives you an assortment of colors for each size. To top it off, the 4-inch lengths are long enough for most applications, and fit nicely into a plastic storage case.
With a price of about $10 for 154 pieces of heat shrink, in an assortment of sizes and colors, you really can't go wrong.
