The Cape Presents the Ultimate GeekDad Utility Belt Giveaway

Geek Culture


In NBC’s new show The Cape, Vince Faraday is an ex-cop and father who is forced to take the guise of his son’s favorite comic book hero to bring down a corrupt police force. Faraday has his cape, made of Kevlar-like spider silk, which he can snap like a whip to disable foes. What do you have in your GeekDad utility belt?

If your own superhero stockpile is spent and you’re looking to replenish, then look no further. GeekDad and The Cape are bringing you the best of the best in geeky tools, gadgets and entertainment so that you can re-arm yourself for the upcoming year.

You’re the kids’ hero, but sometimes you’re their villain. When you need to infiltrate their headquarters, you need super-secret spy gear. And ThinkGeek is your ally in crimefighting!

Step one: keep ’em under surveillance. Use ThinkGeek’s Lighter Spycam. You don’t have to worry about them burning down the house, because it doesn’t actually create a flame. But you can rest assured that your kids will hold onto it, just in case it ever does. And while they do, it’ll record their every nefarious conversation on its 4GB flash memory, in 640×480 resolution AVI.

Step two: follow them around with your new remote control micro gyro copter. No, it’s not equipped with any weaponry or additional surveillance equipment, but it’ll bug the hell out of them, or possibly even turn turn them to your side.

Step three: when they steal your micro copter and spycam and lock themselves in their room, you can try to pick the lock with the Utili-Key 6-in-1 Tool, conveniently stored on your keychain. That’ll teach them!

Our big winner gets one of each, and four lucky consolation winners get a Utili-Key, just by filling out the form below (or click here to fill it out in a new window). Be sure to let us know what single item you always include in your utility belt. This contest is limited to US addresses only. Enter once and you’re set for the entire contest, so no need to fill out the form every day.
