Apex Tool Group LLC has added Diamond Tip Screwdrivers to its premier Crescent hand tool brand.
The company says the most important feature of these new screwdrivers, which are initially available in Phillips and slotted styles, is their diamond tips.
A diamond-infused powder coating gives the tips up to four times the grip of non-coated tips, greatly reducing slippage and cam-out. The handle design features thermoplastic rubber molded over a tri‑lobe shaped acetate core.
The grip and comfort provided by the tri‑lobe design allows users to apply up to 20% more torque than with more traditional handle styles. The translucent acetate used on the handles is also specially formulated to provide superior impact and UV resistance.
Slotted styles feature square shanks and red acetate handle bases. Phillips styles have round shanks with blue handles. All styles have black oxide blades with laser-etched markings. Size markings on the ends of each handle allow easy identification when carried in a tool belt.
“Users are looking for screwdrivers that will allow them to apply greater torque and get jobs done faster,” says Kevin Burnet, product ,anager. “These new diamond-tipped screwdrivers do all of that.”
The new Crescent Diamond Tip Screwdrivers are available as a four-piece set (Catalog No. CGS4PCSET) in-store and online from hardware retailers and home improvement centers and from online retailers.
