Three New Ratcheting Wrench Insert Bit Sets Now Available from GearWrench

SPARKS, Md. (October 24, 2016) – GearWrench®, an innovative hand tool brand known for tools that deliver speed, strength, and access to automotive technicians, today announced the availability of three new Ratcheting Wrench Insert Bit sets. Each insert bit fits into a ratcheting wrench, allowing it to be used like a ratchet with a bit socket, but with a much lower profile for improved access in tight spaces. 

 The new sets include:

 SKU 81550: 8-Piece Metric Hex Ratcheting Wrench Insert Bit Set

SKU 81560: 11-Piece Torx® Ratcheting Wrench Insert Bit Set

SKU 81602: 41-Piece Master Ratcheting Wrench Insert Bit Set

 “It’s critical today’s techs to have tools that allow for easy accessibility in confined areas,” said Jim Stewart, product manager for GearWrench. “We designed the Ratcheting Wrench Insert Bits with this in mind. These bits provide exceptional access for users.”

The insert bits, which exceed ASME strength requirements, fit in 6-point or 12-point wrenches to provide greater access than a standard ratchet and bit socket. This means fewer components need to be removed to get the job done when working on difficult to reach fasteners, helping jobs get completed faster.

A ball detent securely holds the insert bit in the wrench. Each bit has a size marking on its base for easy identification. The 8 and 11-piece sets come packed in vacuum formed storage trays. The master set features a blow-molded case with storage space for wrenches.
