23 Jun DeWALT Expands the Atomic Compact Hand Tools Line
DeWALT has expanded its Atomic Compact™ series with several new compact measuring and layout tools including tape measures, a chalk reel and a pocket laser measurer. The tapes are available in 16-Ft. (DWHT38116S), 25-Ft. (DWHT38125S), 26-Ft. (DWHT38126S) and 30-Ft. (DWHT38130S) lengths with 13-Ft. max reach. They have a more compact grip and improved ergonomics and control. DeWALT’s first ever integrated finger brake also helps provide a controlled blade retraction to reduce hook damage. The tapes display fractional blade graphics for quick measurements, and a durable blade coating that delivers long blade life. The Chalk Reel (DWHT47258L) is compact for convenient storage in tool bags, boxes, and belts, and is engineered to withstand tough applications through a sealed gear system that helps protect against contamination and debris. A 3:1 gear ratio delivers faster rewind after the chalk is marked, while the built-in clutch system helps reduce line jams and delivers smooth releases. And the 55 ft. Pocket Laser Distance Measurer (DW055PL) fits in most pockets and is equipped with a rechargeable battery through USB charging. The backlit LCD screen clearly displays measurements as taken, while one-button operation allows users to quickly change between units of measure.
