Blackhawk By Proto Introduces Quick Ratchet Tool Sets

This multi-tasking, compact tool set can squeeze into the tightest of spaces. Conyers, GA, July 17, 2006 -The new Blackhawk(TM) by Proto® Quick Ratchet(TM) tool sets let any assembly, maintenance, or repair technician enjoy the benefits of a tool technology once found only in precision torque wrenches. This outstanding tool system revolves around a ratchet handle that accepts interchangeable working heads, including ratcheting box wrenches, 3/8-in. and 1/4-in. socket drivers, and a screwdriver bit driver. It includes a precise positioning head that rotates through 180 degrees, locking every 12 degrees in 15 different positions. This multi-function tool offers workers convenience and versatility. The Quick Ratchet(TM) tool can be used as: A flexible ratcheting box wrench in 13 common SAE and metric sizes. A standard ratchet, able to accept any 1/4 or 3/8 in drive socket. A ratcheting screwdriver. A standard screwdriver. The interchangeable heads easily snap onto the handle. The handle's slim profile and flexible head, combined with the short sweep of the ratcheting heads, make it easy for workers to access and turn fasteners in some of the most cramped and hard-to-reach spots. Each set includes a low-profile, knurled screwdriver bit driver that can be snapped onto a ratchet head, or removed and turned by hand. When hand-turned, the knurled driver helps let workers easily turn screws that might be too small for even the shortest screwdriver to squeeze into. Quick Ratchet(TM) sets can be used for multiple types and sizes of fasteners. But rather than lugging around separate sets of wrenches and screwdrivers, workers need only carry the handle and the lightweight heads, in a compact, 8.5 by 12 inch case. The ratchet handle is forged from high-quality chrome vanadium steel. It includes a bi-material cushion grip for user comfort.
