**new Tools **

To all my fellow 'Multi-trade handimen' (heads up Slickshift) - I have discovered some great new tools for plumbing uses. (At least I've never seen them before). -
1. a neat double ended 'tub drain/overflow installer' ( no more scratching them with your longnose pliers! )
2. a strainer basket multi-tool.
3. an extendable faucet wrench, 8-16".
All made by a company called Wolverine Tools, Ontario, Canada. I hope you guys can find them available at some stores.
Also found, a plastic oval 9x18 cover for when you have to change over shower faucets, handles etc, to a different configuration, this avoids a big hole in the shower/tub liner. I used to make these myself, now available for $12. Moen makes something similar, but much smaller.
All of these fairly cheap tools will save a lot of fooling around (and maybe scratching) with pliers,etc.

Do it Right - Do it once.

I know your going to be shocked, but after reading this post I did a search (audience gasps)
I was unable to find Wolverine Tools of Canada but I did find this on one of my favorite, but alas not local, hardware stores:
<img src="http://www.hardwarestore.com/media/product/195180_front500.jpg">
It says it's made by Plumbshop, but look at the logo on the card
Their were a few other "Plumbshop" items that, if they were "carded" also had parts of "Wolverine Tools" logo showing
I thought that was interesting
Is this the strainer multi-tool?

I was unable to find a double ended "tub drain/overflow tool" or an extendable faucet wrench of any kind any where

Especially not the cover (though I didn't try Moen) as I may have to switch out a shower faucet next week (can't find replacement parts-too old, well duh it's old, that's why I need the parts, if it was new I'd better not need replacement parts!)

Maybe with a part # or two I could call Aubuchon Hardware and ask if they can get any other "Plumbshop" items
Or a picture? I'm trying to picture the double ender and am drawing a blank
Though I like the extended faucet wrench idea!
