Klein Tools Expands Line of Cushion-Grip Magnetic-Tip Nut Drivers With Hollow Shaft Design

May 25, 2006
CHICAGO, IL – May 2006 – Klein Tools’ Cushion-Grip Magnetic-Tip Nut Driver product line has expanded with the introduction of 11 magnetic nut drivers and two new seven-piece magnetic nut driver sets. These new magnetic nut drivers feature rare earth magnetic tips and a full hollow shaft design.

Klein Tools’ exclusive design uses a donut-shaped magnet in the tip, allowing full engagement with the nut to hold fasteners securely in place. The full hollow shaft lets unobstructed pass-through, even on long-bolt applications, and is useful for work on electrical and HVAC/R panels, and stacked circuit boards. No other magnetic nut drivers on the market feature this donut-shaped magnet and full hollow shaft design.

The new magnetic-tip nut drivers also feature Cushion-Grip handles for greater torque and comfort, color-coded handles with Tip-Ident® for quick and easy identification of hex size, and chrome-plated shafts to prevent corrosion.

Klein’s Cushion-Grip magnetic-tip nut driver product line now includes hex sizes from 3/16" to 1/2" and shaft lengths from 1-1/2" to 18". There are 19 individual sizes and five different set configurations, including three two-piece sets with shaft lengths of 1-1/2", 3" and 6", and two seven-piece sets with shaft lengths of 3" and 6".

According to Jeff Konkle, product manager at Klein Tools, “No other magnetic-tip nut drivers on the market feature the donut-shaped rare-earth magnet and the full hollow shaft design that allows full engagement of the fastener.”
