Wait…Only 52% of Us Feel Confident Using a SCREWDRIVER?!
I know we're less handy than we used to be, but this still seems low...
2,000 homeowners were asked about various type of tools, and if they’re comfortable using them or not and believe it or not, only 52% of people are confident using a SCREWDRIVER?!
The weirdest or maybe saddest part is that’s also the tool that they were MOST confident with!
Pliers are next at 47%, followed by a wrench at 46%.
That being said, it makes sense that the repairs we’re most comfortable doing ourselves DON’T require tools.
Number one being “replacing a light bulb“.
The top five D.I.Y. things we can do ourselves are replacing a light bulb…cleaning our dryer vent…swapping out filters in a furnace or air conditioner…testing a smoke alarm…and tightening the hinge on a door.
One in three people also think they could unclog a sink…31% can fix a running toilet…29% can locate a stud in their wall…and 27% could replace a light switch if they needed to.
