KNIPEX Tools has launched several tools to the North American market, including the Modular X18 Backpack, Jaw Protectors for Cobra Pliers, new set assortments and more.
The Modular X18 Backpack can handle up to 33 lbs. of tools, supplies and personal belongings. It features 21 retaining loops, 37 pockets and a removable tool board to help customize packing. The front and back panels fully hinge for access to tools and the waterproof molded bottom is made of impact-resistant plastic to keep bags in a secure, upright position. The backpack also features MOLLE straps on the inside and outside of the bag, as well as a magnetic FIDLOCK connector.
Three new jaw protectors are added to the existing line of jaw protectors for Pliers Wrenches, this time for three sizes of the Cobra Pliers. The Jaw Protectors for Cobra Pliers are made of plastic and prevent damage to workpieces by covering all the teeth of the tool. They snap onto the jaw and give a firm, non-marring bite. Each set contains three pairs of plastic protective jaws – three upper jaws and three lower jaws – that are marked ‘top’ and ‘bottom’ for identification. Jaw Protectors are available for the 7 1/4-in., 10-in. and 12-in. Cobra Pliers produced after 2007.
Also included in the launch is an assortment of new sets. Anticipated products are the two-piece Mini Pliers Set XS in Belt Pouch (00 20 72 V04 XS), a three-piece Pliers set (9K 00 80 156 US) and an eight-piece Cobra Pliers Set (9K 00 80 149 US). New and revised sets will continue to be rolled out.
