No more lost screws and sockets


With the Joker ring ratchet spanner, the holding function is ensured by a metal plate located in the open jaw.

Holding screws and nuts in the tool / Gripping force between tool and screw thanks to special geometry / Holding function through special ball retention mechanism / Tools with holding function include sockets, bit sockets, screwdrivers, bits, angle wrenches and Joker ring ratchet spanners / All screwdriving tools with "Take it easy” tool finder / Individually or as a specially assorted set in a compact textile box

Wuppertal. Wera launched further additions to the tools with holding functions. 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 before or during the screwdriving process.

It’s stuck here
In order to achieve this, the Wera people have developed a special geometry that creates a clamping force between the tool and the screw, for example 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 combination 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 functions, 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 according 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.
