The new line, featuring Mayhew’s signature ProGrip handle, includes over 30 unique hooks and picks and 11 convenient sets, from miniature, to heavy-duty, and extra-long. The varying lengths, shapes, and angle bends are uniquely designed for an array of industrial, automotive, and hardware applications. All of the tools, including marking and hole-making picks, O-ring picks, trim tools, and hose picks, consist of an alloy steel shank with black oxide finish to deter rust and are made in the USA. The ergonomic ProGrip handle, made of highly-resilient Polypropylene with an over-molded Thermoplastic Elastomer soft grip, has two patented ribs around its neck to allow for maximum transfer of torque from the hand to the tool and a slip-free grip when pushing or prying. Additionally, the rounded end rolls smoothly onto the heel of the palm, reducing friction and hand fatigue. All of the tools in the line are designed for easy access into tight spaces and provides necessary leverage in close-quarters to position, retrieve, remove parts, or easily maneuver around obstacles that otherwise would be troublesome. Additional use applications include: Marking or tracing crisp, accurate lines on work pieces Puncturing or enlarging holes in leather, canvas, or wood Removing O-rings, springs, and spacers Extracting door panels and molding rivet fasteners without damage Positioning, installing, separating, or removing of radiator, heater, vacuum, or other transmission lines/hoses from their fittings The available hook and pick sets are as follows: Item # Description 13090 4 Pc.
