The new cutters and pliers feature double insulated Santoprene handles. The high-visibility orange outer-surface handle resists oil, perspiration, water and chemicals for precise functionality, while the permanently bonded, inner-surface handle is bright yellow so it acts as an "at-a-glance" safety monitoring system. Another sought-after safety feature of the cutters and pliers is their large finger stops that guard against accidental contact with exposed metal tool parts.

The IDEAL line of insulated Screwdrivers and Nutdrivers offer an ergonomic cushioned grip. The rounded handle naturally fits the electrician's hand, and the non-slip Santoprene surface assures maximum gripping strength.

Key to the success of the new screwdrivers is a tempered blade that is finished with black oxide and hardened for longer life and maximum quality. The nutdrivers are precision formed and hardened for heavy-duty workloads.
