Spring is in the air, and it’s time to get those engines ready for warmer weather and family road trips. These are just a few tools and products techs are using to increase productivity in the shop while maintaining a safe work area.
Snap-on® VST1435 Dodge®/Chrysler® Valve Spring Compressor – By eliminating the need to remove the engine or cylinder heads on various Dodge and Chrysler models, the VST1435 saves technicians valuable time. This, coupled with its strong design for safe valve keeper removal, reduces valve spring service time from days to hours.
Snap-on WHS4 4-Piece Wheel Hanger Set – The WHS4 Wheel Hanger Set is made up of four simple tools that hold the wheel in place when removing and installing bolts while trying to balance the wheel at the same time. All four pieces feature a 10mm hex and range in thread size that can be installed by hand, wrench or air ratchet. This set makes the task faster and safer for the technician and is essential for anyone doing a lot of wheel service work.
Snap-on GLOVE320 D30® Shock Absorber Glove – Nothing protects better than these safety gloves, featuring D30® impact protection material throughout the palm (4 mm padded heel section) and fingers (2 mm pads sewn internally on all fingers) to effectively absorb impact and vibration. For added comfort and durability, the palm is reinforced with abrasion-resistant synthetic leather and the fingertips feature a hot stamp texture. The gloves are also touch screen capable.
Snap-on ECHDB022 275 Lumen Magnetic Mountable Headlamp – The variable brightness headlamp brings hands-free lighting to a new level, bundling light and battery into one package. Able to be mounted to almost any metal surface with a built-in magnet, the ECHDB022 is also easily detachable. Not only does it run for two hours at maximum brightness (six hours at 40 percent), but its slim, rugged package also boasts an IP65 rating for exposure to water and dust in the toughest environments.
