Channellock Unveils Line of Dual Composition Drivers
Meadville, Pa. - June 28, 2004 - CHANNELLOCK proudly introduces a new line of dual composition screwdrivers and nut drivers. The new selection offers a number of improvements that will be appreciated by do-it-yourselfers and professionals alike.
Features that set the new CHANNELLOCK® screwdrivers and nut drivers apart include:
o TPR-rubber handle provides superior grip and greatly reduces the potential for slippage while under heavy use - more comfortable than traditional hard plastic.
o Polypropylene inner core adds strength against twist-outs under heavy torque.
o Chrome vanadium steel shafts and blades provide a strong, durable backbone to withstand significant workloads.
o Chrome plating adds durability and resistance to the elements.
o "Vapor-Blast" tip prevents chrome flakes from being left behind to compromise delicate components.
o Color-coded size indicators on handle ends make it easy to find the right size at a glance.
o Nut drivers feature semi-hollow shafts to accommodate longer bolts and add strength over full-hollow shaft designs.
o Nut drivers also feature spun-welded heads for greater strength and durability under heavy torque.
The new assortment of high-quality screwdrivers is available in a wide variety of blade lengths and tip widths, and comes in both standard, Phillip, square recess and Robertson Pattern tips.
Nut drivers are chrome-plated and also offered in various standard and metric shaft lengths and hex sizes.
The ever-popular CHANNELLOCK® 4 'n 1 screwdriver MX-41EZ - featuring interchangeable slotted and Phillips blade inserts - is available as part of the new line-up; as is the SL-41EZ - featuring square recess and Robertson Pattern tips.
