Crescent® Introduces Quick Convert Nut Driver Set

Seven-Piece Nut Driver Set Delivers Speed of Straight Handle and Torque of T-Handle

SPARKS, MD--(Marketwired - Oct 5, 2015) -  Crescent, a leading hand tool brand from Apex Tool Group, today introduced its Quick Convert Nut Driver Set. The new tools provide the speed of a straight handle driver with the torque of a T-handle driver, all in one tool.

Users can easily convert the Quick Convert Nut Drivers by pulling on the shaft, rotating the handle, and pushing it to lock in place. The set includes seven drivers, color-coded for easy identification. The universal socket design fits six fastener types (hex, square, 12-point, E-Torx®, partially rounded hex, and spline) in both SAE and metric sizes. 

"Quick, easy and efficient: Those are the key attributes for this new nut driver set," said Griffin Biering, product manager for Crescent. "One Quick Convert Nut Driver Set replaces four traditional driver sets. There's no better tool for the job, as it provides speed when you want it and torque when you need it."

The hollow shaft works over long threaded rod where standard nut drivers won't fit. The comfortable, dual-material cushioned handle provides a non-slip grip and resists oil and grease.

About Crescent:
Crescent® is a premier hand tool brand from Apex Tool Group, one of the largest hand tool manufacturers in the world. The original Crescent adjustable wrench was introduced in the early 1900s and could replace an entire set of dedicated-size wrenches. This made it perfect for frequent repairs required by early cars and airplanes. In fact, Charles Lindbergh was quoted as saying he carried only "gasoline, sandwiches, a bottle of water and a Crescent wrench and pliers" on his famous 1927 solo transatlantic flight. Today, the Crescent line has expanded beyond adjustable wrenches to include a wide selection of pliers, ratcheting wrenches, screwdrivers, and tool sets.
