New GEARWRENCH Diamond Tip Screwdrivers Are a Tool User's Best Friend

SPARKS, Md., Oct. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- When improving on a classic tool, it's the littlest details that make the biggest difference. The new GEARWRENCH® Diamond-Tip Screwdriver Set gets to the nitty gritty of this iconic tool to make it better and more durable for those that use screwdrivers every day. A part of the Apex Tool Group, GEARWRENCH is a brand of professional hand tools and accessories.

The GEARWRENCH Diamond Tip Screwdrivers are engineered with tri-lobe ergonomic handles for optimal strength and comfort, and a Speed Zone for fast turning in low-torque applications.

Manganese phosphate coated blades provide superior corrosion resistance, and the diamond-coated tips provide up to four times the gripping power while reducing cam-out and slippage compared to non-diamond-coated tips.

"As we do with everything we make, we listened to people who use the tools the most and applied their needs and wants to develop a superior product."
