The award-winning products include X-Beam™ Ratcheting Wrenches, XL Electronic Torque Wrench and the Locking Flex Pass-Thru Ratchet. The Electronic Torque Wrench was selected as one of two runners-up in the “Best New Tools and Equipment Product” category for its superiority in innovation, technical achievement, quality, workmanship and consumer appeal. Additionally, all three products were selected by a panel of international journalists for the second annual SEMA International New Products Award. With a jury representing 37 media outlets in 22 countries, the jury determines which new products are most likely to succeed.
Also in November, the X-Beam Wrench received the 2006 Best of What’s New Award from Popular Science in the Home Technology category. Judged among thousands of entries for the coveted annual award, the X-Beam was selected for its ergonomic design, innovation and ease-of-use.
