When I first read about this product I thought how silly it was. Then I watched the video and changed my mind.....Pretty cool idea

And 60 bucks beats knee surgery.

That is a pretty slick idea, though I don't know how necessary they really are. I've never had the need to skate around when kneeling. When I do floor work I usually need the traction provided by the knee pads.

Thats for sure Jack. I had to have Bi-lateral knee replacements at 52 yr old. Bi-lateral means 2.....lol...I had both knees done at the same time. :eek:

Multimaster tool at its best in the video below.... :rolleyes:

I could see the knee blades being a huge advantage in the commercial industry installing flooring. I remember when I got in the trades ceramic floor tile was set in a mud bed. All the older installers cold hardly walk by the time they were 40 yr old.

Gizmo...good luck...at least the following won't happen to you:

A guy has pain in his left knee and needs an operation. On the way to the operating room he tells the nurse: "you know it's the left knee". She says: "That's right, the doctor knows".

The doctor operated on the right knee.

But seriously, this device is cool, EXCEPT when you need to be stationary.

I agree with the others on the skating part but they are a good idea and I'm sure they have there use. I still use the standard knee pads and go nowhere without them. Doesn't help the hips though :)
