Vampire Tools was inspired by the founder’s experience going to college in America in the 70s.
College students on a budget were fixing our own cars. We would team up with buddies to work on one car and then work on the other friend’s car the following weekend.
We couldn’t afford to take our cars to the car dealerships at the time so off we would go to the junkyard and try and pick up used parts. We would collect tools and fix each other’s cars. The 70’s were the days we Americans (mostly men at the time) loved tools, everyone borrowed from each other and names were commonly engraved on the tools so you couldn’t swipe them! They would also last for a while.
Decades later tools became cheaper mass shipped in from abroad and were generally used a few times before they got thrown away. You would buy from your local hardware store or larger retailers.
Vampire Tools is bringing the pride of fixing things using high quality tools that help solve and fix different problems, bringing family and friends together to get that sense of accomplishment.
In the 70’s it was hard to get a repair book for your particular model of car. Today with the internet and a smart phone, how to repair just about everything at home, your garage and around town is just a few clicks away.
We want to make repairs fun and fast and create a sense of pride and the light we get when we fixed things between father/son/ mother/daughter and between friends.
From our humble beginnings in 2012, now our most popular VAMPLIERS® 6.25″ Screw Extraction Pliers and super combo scissors, Vampire Tools family is growing with a line of high-quality tools that provide satisfaction use for years to come.
