Wuppertal. Wera launched further additions to the tools with holding func-tions. Thus, the Tool Rebels from Wuppertal comply with their fans’ wish to hold the screw or nut on or in the tool so that it does not fall or get lost be-fore or during the screwdriving process.

It’s stuck here
In order to achieve this, the Wera people have developed a special geome-try that creates a clamping force between the tool and the screw, for exam-ple on the TORX® profile. This force is strong enough to hold the screw on the tool. A special ball mechanism takes over the holding function of sock-ets for external hexagon screws and bit sockets for hexagon socket screws or Hex-Plus profile. In all cases, the tool can be removed easily at the end of the screwdriving process. Thus, quick and effective screwdriving is pos-sible even in hard to reach areas in which the free hand can not be used for threading or holding the screw.

New to the range are 3/8-inch sockets and bit sockets for TORX® as well as Hex-Plus profiles, which offer this holding function. The expanded range now includes sockets for external hexagon screws, bit sockets with the TORX® and hexagon socket profiles, screwdrivers as well as angle wrenches with the TORX® profile. This also includes the ratcheting combi-nation wrench Joker, which ensures the holding function by a metal plate located in the open jaw.

New and in colour
Wera now shows their colours in the new assembly tools with holding func-tions, as all of them are equipped with the "Take it easy" tool finder. This is a system attached to the tool, which labels the tool with a colour code ac-cording to size. In addition, the Tool Rebels’ sockets and bit sockets come with a size stamp. This makes it much easier to find the right tool, as the tool pro now only has to resort to the right colour and the clearly identifiable size marking.

The new sockets are available individually or as a special set including a textile box for hexagon screws and nuts as well as bit sockets for screws with the Hex-Plus or TORX® profiles.
