This is the ideal gift for the carpenter or Mr. Fixit who is a bit difficult to buy for. He probably doesn't wear ties but this can clip on a shirt or jacket pocket just as effectively or clip it on a cap. It is a gold tone threaded bolt with nuts at one end. It is 1.5 inches long and has a strong clip on the back. In great condition. Needs a bit more cleaning but I'll do that before I send it out.
