GearWrench Unveils High-Strength Wheel Protector Impact Socket Set

GearWrench, a premier hand tool brand from Apex Tool Group, known for tools that deliver speed, strength and access, today announced its High-Strength Wheel Protector Impact Socket Set, sku # 84946.

The new GearWrench High-Strength Wheel Protector Impact Sockets last three times longer than other wheel-protecting thin-wall sockets due to the high-strength reinforcing ring that increases durability and provides added strength.

“The last thing a technician needs is to damage expensive wheels and lug nuts when changing out a tire,” said Jim Stewart, brand manager for GearWrench.  “Our new sockets offer a protective outer sheath and insert that helps to prevent damage and reduces headaches for technicians while boosting their productivity. But the big difference is these last three times longer than other wheel-protecting sockets.”

The unique socket design helps to provide access in confined spaces and the color-coded outer jacket helps to easily identify the socket size.  The sockets also feature a manganese phosphate coating, which offers two times the life of black oxide coatings, further enhancing the socket’s durability. The three-piece set comes in a durable blow-molded storage case.

“Our new high-quality socket innovation delivers what technicians have come to expect from GearWrench—improved speed, strength and access.  Technicians also benefit from reduced downtime in the shop,” said Stewart.
