Discover the shocking statistics behind tool theft and the innovative solutions being implemented to combat this epidemic.
We welcome back Shoaib @thegasexpert-yt , the mastermind behind the tool theft protest, and he shares his journey from starting a petition to leading a movement that’s changing the landscape of tool security. Hear firsthand accounts of the challenges faced, the unexpected support received, and the incredible impact this grassroots campaign has had on the industry.
