Prevent stripped screws with new Dewalt Impact Ready FlexTorq bits
By Anthony Capkun
April 24, 2014 – Dewalt introduced a new line of Impact Ready FlexTorq screwdriving bits accompanied by a 10X Magnetic Screw Lock system. The FlexTorq design allows bits to flex up to 15 degrees and features oversized wings to provide a better fit between the fastener and the bit tip, which aims to prevent stripped screws.
The 10X Magnetic Screw Lock system minimizes drops and reduces wobbling by employing a magnet to lock the fastener in place on the bit tip. The 10X system will include a new rapid load holder (compatible with all 1-in. bits) and a collar that fits onto 2-in., 3.5-in., and 6-in. FlexTorq power bits. The products are available now anywhere Dewalt products are sold.
