The yellow tool on the left is Pedro's bicycle toothbrush that retails for $5.99. The blue tool on the right is hoof pick with brush (to use on horses), regularly about $2.00 but on sale for a buck thirty eight. A bike riding equestrian tells me the hoof pick works great to clean cogs and gears on bikes. Photo info: Bike Brush by richardmasoner.

Same thing with those gates that block small children from climbing up the stairs. They run 30 to 40 bucks at the local baby superstore, but only 15 to 20 when you buy them at the pet store. Same exact gate.
