u-GUARD Anti-Mar Protective Covers

Feb. 10, 2022

Apex u-Guard gives manufacturers a weapon against In-System Damage (ISD) – chips, scratches, dents, and dings that occur during product assembly. The Apex u-Guard line’s protective skin is made of an elastomer blend that is soft enough to protect assembled products from damage caused by incidental contact with swinging tools, yet tough enough to resist punctures and endure shift after shift of operation with minimal wear. The elastomer skin also exceeds the limitations of nylon-based cover material, making it suitable for use in bodywork (pre-paint) applications.


The Apex u-Guard line of tools offers the tightest tolerances in the industry and delivers a sure, exact fit with the fastener. Each tool features a unique "free-spinning" design that allows the molded skin to rotate independently of the socket, bit or extension spinning inside, so workers can grip the skin and avoid potentially harmful contact with the contained tool. This enhances productivity, reduces worker fatigue, and protects against potential safety hazards that result from rotational friction.
