  • 7-in-1 Impact Flip Socket with Handle – The new impact flip socket includes six integrated hex sizes plus a ¼-inch bit holding feature. Created with the intent of versatility and quick switches, this product would be a great addition to any toolbox.
  • Advanced Circuit Tracer Kit – This product provides reliable tracing of energized, or non-energized breakers, fuses and wires. The receiver sensitivity can easily be adjusted to signal through drywall, cement blocks or even underground.
  • Compact Laser Distance Measure – Measure long distances with accuracy and precision with the new compact laser distance measure. Measure up to 100 feet with the quick ability to toggle between inches, feet and meters. With additional features like an automatic shut off, audio alerts and even a pocket clip, it’s no wonder it has a five-star review.
