EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass., May 23, 2006 — LENOX®, a leading manufacturer of premium power tool accessories, hand tools, torches, solder and band saw blades, today announced the introduction of a line of Hollow Shaft Nut Drivers specially designed for electricians, plumbers and HVAC technicians. The new line features long tool life, a comfort grip, quick alignment guides and color coding for easy size identification.
The new nut driver line features a full hollow shaft design that allows the tool to be used on longer bolts and threaded rods. A Chrome-Vanadium (CR-V) steel shaft resists wear and corrosion, resulting in longer tool life. Compared to competitive designs, the one piece design of the LENOX® nut driver shaft increases the durability of the driver, especially during severe torque application.
Another premium feature of the new line of LENOX® Hollow Shaft Nut Drivers is the comfort grip which provides users with a slip resistant, ergonomic handle and delivers more torque than typical acetate handle nut drivers. Color coded handles and size information inscribed on the tool′s shaft make it easy for users to identify a specific size when on the job. The unique design also provides for quick alignment between tool and nut with the "Align Guide" system that indicates hex orientation on the front of the handle.
LENOX® Hollow Shaft Nut Drivers are offered in a broad range of imperial and metric sizes, including 7-piece sets featuring the most popular sizes. The product line is available at plumbing, electrical and HVAC distributors nationwide.
