RS PRO Long Arm Ball End Hex Key

From RS PRO, this individual long arm hex key has a ball end for added convenience. The key has a chrome vanadium steel construction, ensuring optimal strength and a long tool shelf life. It also boasts an element of corrosion resistance.

Ball ended hex keys have an advantage in that they can slide more easily into hex key sockets, which is handy when approaching a job from a tricky angle or in a confined space.

Features and Benefits

• Chrome vanadium steel construction
• Ball end allows users to screw at an angle
• Make use of both ends of the hex key
• Chemically blackened finish
• High quality, L shaped hex keys

Applications

Often referred to as an allen key or L-wrench, the hex key is a driver designed for hex nuts and sockets, and are generally easier to turn and apply torque than more conventional screws. As such, they are ideal for when fasteners need to be adjusted or equipment needs to be dismantled. From furniture assembly to bicycle maintenance, this metric hex key is ideal.

Hex keys are considered a household essential, especially if users build a lot of flat-pack furniture. They are simple tools that make a big difference. Those that have a variant of sizes and thicknesses will be able to carry out many different jobs in domestic and commercial applications.

Tool Care

This chrome-plated hex key has a degree of corrosion resistance, however, correct storing of your tools will increase their useful life. It is recommended that the tools are stored in a clean and dry environment.
