Press release date: Jun 15, 2017

Klein Tools (www.kleintools.com), for professionals since 1857, introduces the 2-in-1 Hex Head Slide Driver™ Tools in the common ¼” and 5/16” sizes to eliminate changing tools while on the job. The unique, patented tip slides between the two popular hex sizes and features a magnetic tip to hold screws in place while fastening.

2-in-1 Hex Head Slide Driver™ Tools

  • Unique, patented tip slides back and forth from ¼” and 5/16” hex sizes
  • Thumb nut twists to lock in tip setting
  • Six-point hex drivers exceed ASME torque requirements
  • Rare-earth magnetic tips hold screws in place while fastening
  • Cushion-grip handle for added torque and comfort
  • Features tip-ident on the top of the handle for easy tool identification
  • Solid shank like a standard blade available in two sizes:
    • 1-1/2” shank length (Cat. No. 65131)
    • 6” shank length (Cat. No. 65129)

“Tradespeople have multiple hex drivers in their tool bag. This not only adds weight to their bag, but can also make it difficult to find the right hex size tool quickly,” says Raul Rosales, senior product manager at Klein Tools. “We developed a unique, patented hex head driver that features two hex heads and a magnetic tip to hold screws in place while fastening. Tradespeople can even chose from different shank lengths for a more comfortable, easy-to-use tool.”
