My Dad was a building contractor. And, his tools often took a hike into some one else's tool box. Not deliberate, but when everyone is scrambling to clean up at the end of the day, stuff gets misplaced. So, he bought a can of flourescent purple spray paint. Every tool he owned had a stripe of purple around the handle. No mistaking that!!!
I keep saying that... one of these days, I'm gonna so label my garden tools. It will make them so much easier to find when I'm searching the yard... "Now... where did that rake go????"
I'm always losing my soil knives and clippers around the yard. I should do that.
My dad did the same thing when he worked construction. He also replaced all the cords with twist lock ends, so people couldn't easily use his tools
