Hey everyone. Welcome back. At the place we were testing every single pair of gloves that we can get our hands on. Even the Lucky Shamrock ones. That's right. This looks like a brand that is straight out of the eighties or seventies. Seventies. Definitely seventies. Excited to get into it. Tara, please tear that open and get a sample for me. The box is good size though. Easy to pull the gloves out. I'm noticing that as an issue with some manufacturers. I like that. Immediately I pull the glove out of the box and you just get this feeling immediately when you've opened as many glove boxes as I have if a brand is good or not. Oh man, I hate that. That's the worst. You failed the dawning. I hear that Happens a lot though. Don't worry, Lloyd. It happens to a lot of people. All right, now I'm going to do the wince test here. Whoa, that exploded. Sorry. You're going to clean that up later. What is going on with this thing? Okay, we're all over the place. Here we go. Cleaning it up a little bit. So again, we don't love the design the box, pretty much it looks, it doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be good or bad. Shamrock Manufacturing Co. Chino, California. Oh, I had a company in Chino once. That's where the Sierra Nevada is. Wait, no, that's Chico. I don't know where Chino is. Those are different places. Similar. Similar where pants come from. Wait, is this made in? No, made in Indonesia. Okay.
And it says it complies with food contact. So if it applies, if it is certified for food contact, it should pass this test. Alright, and we're off to the races here. We are doing the, what are we doing? The tensile strength and elongation test. What we're trying to do is stretch this sample until it breaks. When it breaks, you're going to see this line drop here. That tells us where the failure point is. We want it to be above 500% ideally, or if the glove is more than six months old, which judging by the artwork, it's like 30 years old that it's above 400% and that is very high, right?
It was middle 50%.
Oh yeah, it's right in the middle. Actually. I can see it coming through right there at two 50. So this is a good chance of breaking 400 for sure. And again, this is the test that we do in the United States because we want things to be quality. We want them when you put them on, we don't want that break. Was this the one that broke when I put it on? Yes,
It was. Yeah.
I feel bad for Shamrock.
397%. 397%. That's unsatisfying. That is unsatisfying. Just bringing you right to the edge and not going over. I hate that 21 tensile strength. It's old. Yeah, we think it's very old. How old should be 2020? 2020. Yes. I was the hazard. A guess based on that lot. Okay. We don't know, but we think it's from 2020 it could be aged out. That's the thing with Amazon, sometimes you buy things that have expired and there's no way to really know. That said, I'd probably stay away from Shamrock. This is my personal opinion. It could be this one test was wrong, but when I dawned it, it did break. And then the fact that it didn't pass the test, I just think there are probably stronger brands out there. My opinion, your mileage could vary. Thank you so much for watching and I'll catch you on the next test.
