Irwin Tools launches Impact Performance Series—Phase II
By Anthony Capkun
July 30, 2014 – Irwin Tools is introducing the second phase of its Impact Performance Series portfolio of impact driver accessories, featuring double-ended power bits, a Tapcon installation system, Bolt-Grip and Screw-Grip extractors.
The double-ended power bits promise an improved driving functionality and the convenience of having two tips in one bit, eliminating the time spent searching for a replacement bit between applications. These bits feature DoubleLok Technology, which securely locks both ends of the bit into impact drivers and quick-change chucks. This launch also introduces Irwin’s Tapcon installation system. Compatible with standard drill/drivers—but especially designed for use with impact drivers—this system combines a bit and drill/drive sleeve to make Tapcon installation faster and easier.
The Bolt-Grip extractors feature patented reverse spiral flutes, engineered to provide gripping power to remove broken, damaged or rusted nuts, bolts and screws. The new Screw-Grip extractors with DoubleLok Technology lock into impact drivers and quick-change chucks, and are designed to easily remove damaged screws and small bolts with a single bit in three steps: drill, flip bit and extract.
