OLYMPIA TOOLS IS SET TO HELP TOOL STOCKISTS CAPITALISE ON THE SUCCESS OF ONE OF ITS MOST POPULAR BRANDS OF WRECKING BAR CURRENTLY ON THE MARKET.
The company, which distributes the Roughneck brand of hand tools and workwear, has recently extended its widely respected Roughneck Gorilla Bar range by developing and repositioning two of its existing products.
Both of the products in question now benefit from a number of refinements including an enhanced shape. It’s this key aspect which has led to them being added to the Gorilla Bar® range which is marketed under the proposition – ‘the shape makes the difference’.
The first of the two products to be refined and repositioned is the Roughneck Utility Bar.
Renamed the Roughneck Gorilla Utility Bar, this tool now benefits from an innovative profile which is “I” shaped in cross-section.
This enables it to deliver much greater levels of strength and rigidity compared to bars with a uniformly flat profile which can be prone to bending under pressure.
Further features offered by the new Roughneck Gorilla Utility Bar™ include a flat anvil on the neck which can be used for striking as well as three integrated nail pullers.
The second product to be added to the Gorilla Bar range is the enhanced Roughneck Bonsai Bar.
Now called the Roughneck Gorilla Bonsai Bar, this tool also benefits from a revised shape which enables it to deliver even greater levels of strength.
Another new feature is a magnet which has been incorporated into the head to help with securing and picking up nails and screws after removal. The Roughneck Gorilla Bonsai Bar also has a flat heel enabling it to be struck with a hammer whilst the tool can double as a mini-hammer in its own right.
Two variants of the Roughneck Gorilla Bonsai Bar are available.
The first has a regular claw tip specifically for removing nails and the second has an extra wide tip complete with a nail removing notch. This latter, wide tip version has been designed for maximum effectiveness in removing skirting, architraves and other mouldings without damaging substrates. www.olympia-tools.co.uk
