Only 52% of Us Feel Confident Using a Screwdriver?

Many Tools on white background

I know we’re less handy than we used to be, but this still seems low . . .

 

 

Someone asked 2,000 homeowners about various type of tools, and if they’re comfortable using them or not.

 

 

And only 52% of people are confident using a screwdriver!

 

 

The weirdest part is that’s also the tool we’re MOST confident with.  Pliers are next at 47%, followed by a wrench at 46%.

 

 

I guess it makes sense then that the repairs we’re most comfortable doing ourselves DON’T require tools.  Number one is replacing a lightbulb.

 

 

The top five D.I.Y. things we can do ourselves are replacing a lightbulb . . . 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.
