Wiha Tools offers Soft Grip dual drive ball end hex inch and metric T-handles with hard chrome finish blade. The ergonomic design of the Soft Grip T-handles are comfortable to hold. With fewer pressure points and less strain on the user, the Soft Grip T-handles offer maximum working comfort. Two-component Soft Grip handle allows for maximum comfort and maximum power. Molded-on handles give a full T-handle grip and through the handle side torque drive. When using the side blade, a supporting hand on the handle produces additional stability. This prevents the blade from suddenly slipping out of the screw head, better for both blade and screw. The integrated side blade is particularly useful when loosening or tightening screws that are rusted-in, glued into position, or particularly hard to move. Ball end on long arm for speedy insertion and angle entry. Chrome finish blades guarantee optimum corrosion protection and a long service life for the whole blade.
