The world’s first fixed blade VDE stubby screwdriver has been launched by C.K tools, the electrician’s tool brand of choice. The C.K Stubby VDE Slim Screwdriver further extends the company’s already vast range of innovative screwdrivers.
After undertaking research with professional electricians, C.K tools identified that most carry a non-insulated stubby screwdriver. Despite understanding the importance of using insulated tools, electricians often encounter situations where their usual VDE screwdriver won’t fit. The new C.K Stubby VDE Slim Screwdrivers are designed to fill this problematic void; featuring a shorter length, they are ideal for use in confined spaces, and full VDE approval provides the assurance that each is individually tested to 10,000v for safe working up to 1,000v.
Premium quality, chrome vanadium steel blades provide exceptional strength and durability while the slim shaft allows access to recessed screws and fixings. Furthermore, anti-roll flats prevent the screwdriver from rolling off sloping surfaces.
Manufactured in Germany, the C.K Stubby VDE Slim Screwdrivers are available in four key tip types, the essential PZ2, Slotted sizes 4.0mm and 5.0mm and Modulo (+/-) 2, with tip type markings for easy identification.
Graham Godfrey, Brand Manager, C.K tools, comments: “As with all of our tool innovations, we design our products based on detailed collaboration with end-users. Thanks to this approach, we identified a real need for safe, slim, stubby screwdrivers that provide electricians with the security that can only come from a VDE product.
“We’re therefore delighted and extremely proud to be launching the world’s first fixed blade VDE stubby screwdriver. The C.K Stubby VDE Slim Screwdriver is filling a major gap in the market, and represents one of a number of significant, innovative launches from C.K tools in 2017.”
Working in partnership with end users ensures that C.K tools are able to deliver tool solutions that are best suited to the actual work undertaken by professional tradesmen and are matched to each sector’s specific and unique requirements.
Industry-leading products launched by C.K tools so far this year include Europe’s first 100% splinterproof cable rods, the C.K MightyRod PRO, and the slim yet tough, C.K dextroVDE Slim Screwdrivers.
