12 Jan Craftsman® V-Series™ Line of Premium Tools
The V-Series is a new, premium line of hand tools that includes hex keys, T-handles, ratchets, wrenches, socket sets and screwdrivers, all of which are backed by a lifetime warranty. The bit-drivers, hex keys and T-handles have X-Tract Technology™, which removes fasteners that are up to 50 percent rounded. It also helps to prevent rounding or stripping of new fasteners. Geometric grooves create additional engagement points for gripping a rounded screw, while also reducing interior stress when turning. The bit-drivers, hex keys and T-handles are manufactured using premium S2 steel for strength and durability.
The series’ all-metal ratchets have three knurled zones for gripping, an enclosed head, a recessed directional lever, and a short arc swing for accessing fasteners in tight spaces without sacrificing strength. Available in SAE and metric measures, the V-Series™ line offers a complete range of combination reversible ratcheting, and extra-long ratcheting wrench sets. There’s a new extended box end design that provides access to fasteners in recessed positions. And each set includes a vertical wrench rack that should fit most metal storage drawers.
All the socket sets have an off-corner design and an expert-grade 6-point socket geometry that maximizes the tool’s torque on the flats of fasteners. For enhanced socket-to-fastener action, sockets are chamfered and tapered. In addition, the line includes low profile magnetic socket rails for storage and organization which are available in orange or green high visibility colors. The screwdrivers have soft-touch grips with protection against common solvents. Larger sizes also include a wide bolster with ample space to grip and wrench when additional torque is required.
