It was nearly 2 years ago that Klein first came out with glow in the dark tools. These high-visibility tools are designed to be easily located when working in dark or dimly lit places.
While initially a little skeptical about how useful these Hi-Viz glow in the dark tool handles might be, I have since been a little more accepting.
Let’s say you’re working in a ceiling, closet, attic, or other dimly lit space. Sure, you might have a flashlight, but it’s a lot quicker if your tool simply glowed to indicate its position. I could see how glowing handles are easier to find after you’ve put them down for whatever reason.
Klein is expanding their glow in the dark tool line with several new screwdrivers.
- Phillips #2, 603-4GLW
- Slotted 1/4″, Cabinet Tip, 605-4GLW
- 6-in-1 Multi-Bit Screwdriver, 32451GLW
The 6-in-1 screwdriver comes with Phillips #1 and #2, Slotted 3/16″ and 1/4″, Nut drivers 1/4″ and 5/16″.
The new Hi-Viz screwdrivers’ phosphorescent handles can be charged up in natural or artificial lighting to provide a bright glow that can last for 30 minutes or more.
Prices: $13 and change for the individual drivers, $16 for the multi-bit driver.
