The Crescent APEX Industrial u-GUARD series of non-marring covered tools gives protection and control on the jobsite. These patented tools allow the user to grab directly onto the drive tool while it spins freely inside the covers, increasing fastening control and significantly reducing contact from the rotating tool. The new line of u-GUARD non-marring covered tools includes bits, bit holders, and nutsetters and is now available for purchase individually or packaged in the rugged new Crescent APEX alphaCASE™ bit storage case.
For construction and industrial users, working near finished paint, cabinetry, door frames, light fixtures, or other final finishes is always a risk. Rework can account for up to 5% of a total job cost. One slip with a traditional bit can scratch or mar the finish, leading to more work and more expense. The u-GUARD non-marring cover protects from scratching or damages and the thin wall maximizes access for tight spaces.
The patented technology behind u-GUARD non-marring covered tools has been proven for over ten years in assembly manufacturing, but this is the first time that this protection is available to the construction and automotive repair industries. Furthermore, the core of the u-GUARD product line is the black oxide Crescent APEX Industrial screwdriving bit featuring full body design for greater durability and optimized tip geometry for best fit.
