I used to go on an annual golf trip with a bunch of Snap-On guys, some of them were ruthless, they would find out there was a new guy starting at a garage or dealership and show up and just put a toolbox in their workspace and refuse to leave until they agreed to buy/finance it.

They would also do this with existing customers when something new would come out, their pitch was the payment you have been making for years will stay the same so why not upgrade.

My Ride: E46 ZHP TS2+ Coupe
My 13mm sockets are covered in remnants of melted transmission mounts, oil, and who the hell knows what other kinds of fluids.
Thread sucks so bad they moved it to the Feedback Forum.

Like you said this can be applied to almost anything manufactured today.
Have you considered wrapping your fridge maybe theres a stainless wrap.
