Hex keys allow for maximum control over product assembly. Most tool kits include several screw sizes that work with all sorts of projects. A complete hex key set provides what you'll need to work with a wide variety of situations. These help both at home and on the job site, and we recommend including an extra set for the garage.
Most professionals trust hand tools to help with everyday tasks like fastening, cutting and forming. Stainless steel hex keys offer one more asset to your collection. Included with many tool sets, these devices work like standard screwdrivers. Just insert the head of the key into the hex screw and twist. Hex keys sets simplify all sorts of projects and make excellent companions for those movers who need fast ways to assemble and disassemble furniture.
Like many multi-tools, hex keys often flip out the specific head needed for the job. Some models lock in place for a secure the hold. T-handle hex keys use an extended stem giving you easy access to deep screw spaces. They turn by hand and gain the required security with a few twists of the handle. Ball end hex keys serve one additional function--to allow the user to twist the screws from off angles--ensuring the best results even with minimal access.
Whichever style you like best, we recommend a full set for everyday usage. These sets remain an important asset for at home, in the workplace, and even in the glove compartment of your car. Choose as a set or by the individual tool, which ever allows you the greatest convenience. Ball ended keys offer great control over various angles and those with T-handles maximize access to deep screw placements. The right hex set should accompany you from project to project.
