SK Professional Tools Launches X-FRAME Ratcheting Wrench

Tagged under:

SK Professional Tools is proud to manufacture the lowest Arc Swing the industry has ever seen with the SK X-Frame Ratcheting Wrench. Available in a full range of sizes, the ratcheting mechanism’s 72 teeth and six dual opposing pawls enable the user to turn nuts in 1.7 degrees (with the ¾-inch SK X model). This increased control allows auto techs to work in tighter spaces.

In fact, the new ratcheting mechanism is so strong that SK re-engineered the geometry of the handle to allow the technician to deliver maximum torque. The SK X-Frame will help professional technicians handle tough jobs with more speed and confidence.
