GAINESVILLE, GA ¯ June 2010 ¯ Count On Tools Inc., a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, announces that the KeyDisc tool holder from PB Swiss Tools has been awarded a 2010 iF Product Design Award in the Industry/Skilled Trades category. The KeyDisc holder was selected out of 2,486 submissions from 39 countries and judged by an independent jury.
For 56 years, the iF Product Design Award has been an internationally recognized synonym for excellence in design. iF has long been accepted globally as a sign of extraordinary design achievement and the organization now operates in Hanover, Munich, Taipei, Korea and Brazil.
The PB Swiss Tools’ KeyDisc design was a successful cooperation between PB Swiss Tools and the industrial designer Paulo Fancelli.
The PB Swiss Tools KeyDisc keeps key L-wrenches readily available for every situation. The tool holder is available for all chromed L-wrenches as well as for the powder coated RainBow® versions in sizes from 1.5-10 mm.
With its new shape and design, the KeyDisc holder provides easy storing and access to tool sets. The clear disc can be rotated around the holder to lock the tools in place for transporting the tool set. To use the tools, simply rotate the disc clockwise as far as it will go and remove the keys by twisting the L-wrench forward. It then can be effortlessly removed from the holder.
PB hex keys feature a perfect-shaped ballpoint end that allows users to turn the screws with an angle up to 30 degrees. PB Swiss is the only manufacturer to offer such a large angle for ballpoint hex keys, resulting in both versatility and uniqueness.
With more than 130 years of experience, PB Swiss Tools is a global leader of hand tools manufactured for use in the industrial marketplace, even for the most hazardous jobs. All PB Swiss Tools are 100 percent Swiss-made and come with an unlimited lifetime guarantee.
