Since we were at Home Depot a lot that week, we noticed this tri-grip ratcheting screwdriver set was on sale for . We bought a couple of extras for other people. It turned out to be a lifesaver, because screwing in the anchor and reenforcing brackets was too hard to do manually, and absolutely imposible to do with a power drill. The ratcheting screwdriver’s large tri-gip handle adds a lot of torque to your screwing ability! We also soaped our wood screws — this made them go into the wood much easier.
We also got a bunch of small LED flashlights since they are on sale too — like 25 @ /each.

BACKSTORY: Too much raccoon noise in the attic! Time to install a built-in ladder, so that we can get up into the attic in 60 seconds to scare away any animals before they decide to move in again. Project cost exceeded 0 and involved 5+ Home Depot trips.
