Expanded Product Line Includes Professional Polyurethane Versions  

HammerSPARKS, MD (October 27, 2014) – GearWrench®, a premier hand tool brand from Apex Tool Group, known for tools that deliver speed, strength and access, today announced its new line of Dead Blow Hammers.

Available in 18, 24, 33, 49, or 54-ounce versions, the new dead blow hammers are made from professional grade polyurethane to resist cuts, splits and abrasions even in extreme sub-zero temperatures.  The new hammers provide the control required when working in restricted spaces and with easily-damaged surfaces.  The hammers are also resistant to gas, brake fluid, anti-freeze and other solvents found in the garage and shop. 

“When you require force with maximum control, these new dead blow hammers deliver the power to get the job done,” said Jim Stewart, product manager for GearWrench.

Performance and comfort are integrated into the product design.  The new Dead Blow Hammers include a shot filled head, which helps to reduce rebound force from the striking surface.  The non-marring hammer face protects struck surfaces yet is also durable. The ergonomic rubber handle offers improved grip and enhanced comfort for end users.

The new dead blow hammers are available for purchase from mobile distributors and automotive parts retailers nationwide. For more information visit
