Klein Tools released the new Switch Drive Handle System to easily alternate any accessory with a power groove between a power tool and hand tool.
While power drills can make quick work of large fastening jobs, a screwdriver is still needed for those times when you need the finesse of a hand tool, the Lincolnshire, Illinois-based company explained. Klein’s new Switch Drive Handle System allows end users to switch between a power drill and hand tool minimizing the number of tools and saving space.
“While the use of power drills for fastening is on the rise, the ratio of hand tool versus power tool use is 50/50,” said Jon Ginsberg, product manager at Klein Tools. ”The Klein Tools Switch Drive Handle System offers a quick and easy way to alternate between the handle and the drill, without sacrificing the durability or performance demanded of Klein’s professional tools.”
The patented quick release mechanism in the handle secures any accessory with a 1/2-in. hex so you can move quickly from a power drill to a hand tool, while maintaining the strength and performance found in a traditional Klein fixed blade screwdriver.
Available in two models, the Power Driver Set features the Switch Drive handle plus #2 Phillips and #2 Square 6-in. (152 mm) power blades. The Power Nut Driver Set includes the handle and three 2-in. (51 mm) magnetic power nut drivers.
