Torx® Sets and Open Stock, Long and Extra-long Combination Sets Added to Line
SPARKS, MD (September 25, 2014) – GearWrench®, a premier hand tool brand from Apex Tool Group, known for tools that deliver speed, strength and access, today announced the launch of several new GearWrench Screwdrivers.
“The line extension offers a variety of sizes and styles that are regularly requested by automotive technicians,” said Jim Stewart, product manager for GearWrench. “The new screwdrivers deliver quality, strength and improved access – attributes that are synonymous with the GearWrench brand. We also listened to our customers … they asked for longer blades on our standard Torx screwdrivers and we delivered.”
Stepping it Up with New Torx® Screwdrivers
The new GearWrench Torx screwdrivers feature longer six-inch blades for improved access in cramped spaces. And for the first time, GearWrench is offering a selection of Tamper Proof Torx screwdrivers with 6” blades as well.
The Long and Longer of It
GearWrench is also introducing an extra-long 24-inch combination set and a long (16 and 20-inch) combination set. The components of both sets are also available as open stock.
All new screwdrivers feature dual material handles for comfort and enhanced performance. The handles are resistant to oil and solvents, further extending the life of the tools. They also feature a ribbed, narrow-diameter “speed zone” section of the handle that allows fast fingertip turning in low-torque situations. The black oxide non-slip tips and laser etched part numbers and sizes make these screwdrivers must-have tools for every garage.
As part of the line extension, GearWrench is now offering the following sets:
- 7-Piece Torx Screwdriver Set – this set features six-inch blades and is available in T-10, T-15, T-20, T-25, T-27, T-30 and T-40.
- 7-Piece Tamper Proof Torx Screwdriver Set – this set features six-inch blades and is available in T-10, T-15, T-20, T-25, T-27, T-30 and T-40.
- 2-Piece Extra Long Combination Screwdriver Set – long reach applications are no longer a challenge with this new set. Screwdrivers include #2 Phillips and ¼ inch slotted with 24-inch shafts. The shafts are heat treated to prevent bending.
- 4-Piece 16” and 20” Combination Screwdriver Set – this set features high quality long screwdrivers to meet the most demanding end user requirements. It includes 16-inch #2 Phillips and 3/8 inch slotted as well as a 20-inch #2 Phillips and 3/8 slotted.
