Cheap must-have DIY-tool – Darley DL-518071 6-in-1 Handheld Carbon Steel Leather Hole Punch - Red + Silver Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Cheap, decent quality and does what it´s supposed to do. Nothing more, nothing less. Rubber handles for better grip and a coulpe of standard size holedimension.
Cons:
The "locking mechanism" consists of a piece of metal nailed in the handle, and when twisted it lockes the hole puncher. Doesn´t really work since it unlocks to easily, but still this isn´t really necessary. Not so much as a con than a "tell the manufacurer to leave out the locking mechanism and lower the price 0.10".
Other:
Manufacturer should leave out the locking mechanism and lower the price 0.10 since it´s not working well at all or seems like a necessary component at all. Does a pair of scissors usually have any types of "locks"?
Bottomline:
Great for DIY-projects or making confetti. Cheap and ok.
