It’s been a big year for GearWrench, and it’s clear they intend to take their success far beyond the ratcheting tools that put them on the map. At SEMA this year they released a number of non-ratcheting products, most notably their new Double-X pliers.
The big deal: The double joint allows the jaws to open wider than the handle, yet keeps the tool long and narrow to reach far into tight spots.
You can really tell what’s going on from the photo alone, but it is worth noting that they look as sharp as GearWrench’s other offerings with polished handles, durable TPR grips, and the laser-etched GearWrench logo. Needle nose, 45-degree bent nose, and duck bill versions will be available, with MSRPs ranging from $54 to $159.99.
Look for more information (and a hands-on) with these soon.
Update: GearWrench also announced a cool screwdriver line at SEMA as well. More on that soon.
