I'll put in a vote for the worthless less than year old 4' double florecent light from home depot above my louver bench. Really, less than a year? REALLY!?
Pretty much anything from Princess Auto in Canada. I bought a socket once because I was doing some torching and knew that I would probably break it and the dame thing was not even made with the hole inthe center. Cheep Crap.
^^^^ ain't that the truth^^^^^

I usually keep a tree in my garage I'll keep my engine hoist thank you.
My son in law.
I remember using those sizes on old Fords (30s/40s) and one (can't remember which size) on my '36 Dodge. I keep mine just in case I ever need them but haven't used that size in years (40 or so).
I'll match you one brother-in-law.
Mine comes with his mother too.
perfect example of this is my avatar lol
vibrating back massager(wife's) to vibrate plaster into a mold once-----boy was she pissed, you would have thought I ruined something usefull. HaHaHa
Metric Cresent Wrench
Eastwoods an flaring tool
My father in law is the most useless tool of all.
I'll second that>!!!!!!
ha ha exactly, i think id rather use a hoist than an oak tree in the middle of a field any day.
I wire industrial controls for a living and in an average day I may stip a couple of hundre wires a day. I also use the type pictured, not to strip wire but they work great for stripping the outer jacket of many types of multi-conductor control cable. They work like crap, IMO, on regular single conductor wire.
My entry is any of the mechanical type wire strippers, I use the simple pliers type all of the time.
But these are crap for crimping wire ends, I use a racheting type:
I have a tool box drawer full of crappy strippers and crimpers I've bought over the years and haven't found many that work with a damn.
I'm still Whitworth in a metric world...
Anybody wanna buy some cordless 18v milwaukee tools?
Back in the late 70's, I was at a buddys house helping him install a CB radio. We needed to drill a hole in the aluminum frame of his truck topper to mount the antenna, and not having any of my tools and him not having very many, it was off to K-Mart for a drill bit. We came back, started drilling, and the bit snagged. It straightened the bit out, actually took out most of the twist. That was the most useless tool I ever saw.
Any tool a family member puts into my stocking on Christmas. All bargain bin junk.
hahaha x2. My friends always buy me "a bunch of tools" for christmas. Its usually shit from a sidewalk sale at harbor freight with a total value of $10
Just about any coil spring compressor.
Including the one I bought from the Snap On guy for $300 back in the 1990s - useless and now the exact same one equally useless at Harbor Freight for $69.99
Once lost my only pair of vise grips (most versatile tool after a block of wood) asked my pops to grab one while he was at the hardware store, he got these instead;
Vipergrips, utterly useless crap, they don't adjust very well, they have a useless plier mode (thats what pliers are for), they are very awkward to clamp into place, and they don't even grip.
Needless to say we went out an got replacement vise grips asap.
Any tool from harbor freight. It might work now. But it won't for long.
Barrery powered LED trouble light. You need a real light to find it, even when its "lit".
