What is a tool?
A tool is an item in world that you can equip separate from your avatar. Most tools perform a task for the user. For example: A fishing pole.
While others will simply provide a cosmetic affect. Example: An Umbrella.

How do I use a tool?
You can use a tool by sending it to your town from your inventory or bank.

ImageOnce you've done so, go on over to your town and look in the top right of the page for the wrench icon. Click on that and you will see the tool inventory pop up along the bottom of the page. This will display any and all tools you have in your land inventory. Simply click the tool you wish to equip and you will see that your wrench icon has changed to the image of the item you've equipped. In some cases, you will see a visual change to your avatar as well!





What if I want to remove the tool from my town?
To remove the tool from your land you will need to first unequip it if it is currently equipped. To do this, open your tool inventory and click on the unequip tool button.

Once that's done open your Town Inventory by selecting the image of the box.


With your Town Inventory open, look for the bank icon on the right of your Town Inventory.


Toggle the send to bank button, you will know it's toggled by the button turning blue with a red outline. You then find the tool you wish to remove from your town and click on it to send it to the bank.

Lanterns!
When used as a tool, a lantern will strengthen the light around your character during the night.
Lanterns add a color based on the lantern itself. Some may add a blue glow while others might be Orange or Yellow!

Note: Below are some examples of lanterns and some images of how they look in game when equipped (In the spoilers). The images for 'nighttime' were taken when the night phase was the darkest during my gameplay to properly show how they light up around the character. Handheld lanterns are not the only source of light in game, some items provide their own glow simply by placing them in your town (ie: Lamps and pets). I will not be discussing these items in this thread.

Fluff is not a tool. As stated above, it is a crafting material
