Box ends feature Universal Spline Drive, which fits several different commonly encountered fasteners including: spline, 12-point, 6-point, e-torx, square and rounded 6-point. Both sides of each wrench have highly visible, recessed color size markings to help technicians easily identify the correct wrench to get jobs done quickly.

Resistant to gas and solvents, the rack’s compact design takes up less space in a drawer or box. Wrenches sit in angled tray slots, providing a neat fit in a 2-inch drawer. 120XP Universal Spline XL Ratcheting Wrenches will be available for purchase late summer. For more information visit
