Streamlight Stinger LED Flashlight
The first tool I reach for is my Stinger LED flashlight. Best I’ve had in 38 years.

Matco Tools Mini Code Reader
The second tool I most likely reach for is my Matco Mini Code Reader. Very easy and clears codes. I haven’t found a vehicle it won’t read.

ALLDATA
The third most likely tool would be ALLDATA. No explanation needed.

Power Probe
This spot (#4) belongs to the Power Probe. Easiest and most versatile test light I have owned.

Brake Lining Gauge Set
It’s a toss up for #5. But I’ll choose the Brake Lining Gauge Set. Easy to explain to customers with the red, yellow and green feelers. I keep a new brake pad handy also for comparison. It really helps.
