Count On Tools Introduces PB Swiss Tools’ New Crosshandle Screwdriver with Rapid Turn Sleeve

GAINESVILLE, GA ¯ July 2010 ¯ Count On Tools Inc., a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, announces that PB Swiss Tools’ popular long PB Crosshandle Screwdriver (PB 207LT) for hexagon socket screws now is available with a rapid turn sleeve.

The rapid turn sleeve allows precise control of the blade with one hand and rapid turning with the other. This is ideal in applications such as industrial environments, where quick equipment repairs are necessary. This PB Crosshandle Screwdriver was designed to speed up the process of tightening and loosening long bolts and fasteners.

The PB Crosshandle Screwdriver is optimally shaped to suit the hand. The unique ergonomic shape was created by an industrial design firm to eliminate the strain on the users’ wrist during tightening and loosening functions. The asymmetric form enables effortless application of high torque to the fastener, which in turn reduces the chance of it stripping.

PB Crosshandle Screwdrivers feature slip-proof handles and transmit the applied energy. The handles are autoclaveable up to 120°C and are resistant to harsh chemicals such as gasoline, acetone, etc. Additionally, the soft handle coating comprised of Santoprene® transfers high hand torque onto the screws effortlessly.

PB Swiss Tools’ Crosshandle Screwdrivers are available in three different handle sizes, depending on the screw profile and size. Each handle features a distinct shape, specifically designed for maximum torque range and ergonomic capability of the tool.

Every PB Crosshandle Screwdriver is color-coded according to screw type for fast identification and ease of use.
