    Stanley® Professional Grade Mechanics Tool Set
    Offers High Performance Use for the Car, Boat or Home

    SUMMARY: Stanley proudly introduces the Stanley® Professional Grade Mechanics Tool Set. Available in various sized sets, these tools are designed for the enthusiastic “shade tree” mechanic or home improvement do-it-yourselfer for automotive or boating repairs and many other types of home repair work. Each tool is forged from high-quality steel and features a professional grade, full-polish finish for corrosion resistance and easy cleaning. Designed for comfort and durability, pear-head shaped ratchets offer the convenience of a quick-release mechanism for securing and changing socket attachments as well as single finger directional switching and long shanks for more torque. The line is made up of a broad range of more than 250 unique items and six comprehensive mechanics tools sets. Unlike other brand name tool sets on the market, Stanley® tool sets are fully organized, assembled and ready to use upon opening the package.

    LAS VEGAS, Nevada, January 19, 2004 – Stanley (NYSE: SWK) proudly introduces the Stanley® Professional Grade Mechanics Tool Set, an ideal kit for any “shade tree” mechanic who takes pride in their automotive or boat repairs, and the home improvement do-it-yourselfer who expects professional grade tool performance at an affordable price. This new line includes six dedicated sets that come “fully loaded” with combination and open-end wrenches, sockets, ratchets, and other accessories. The tools were designed to meet the stringent standards for quality and performance set by professionals.

    Each tool is forged from high quality steel providing smooth and safe edges unlike some other brand name stamped models that suffer from chipping and sharp edges. Stanley® tools feature a professional grade full-polish, smooth finish that makes the tools easy to handle, easy to clean and corrosion resistant.

    The patented pear-head ratchets offer a flush, quick-release button that locks and releases sockets with only one finger to keep sockets from separating from the ratchet during use. Additionally, the pear-head is equipped with a single finger reverse mechanism that smoothly switches during use enabling the user to maintain their position, even in hard to reach places. With gears designed up to 72-teeth, the ratchets require less arc swing (only 5-degrees) to engage and maneuver fasteners in tight spaces with speed and control.

    All sockets in the line have Maxi-Drive™ technology that provides 15% more torque with less slippage or risk of rounding fasteners. This feature also makes it easier to turn old, rusted or worn fasteners with, rounded heads that may not fit perfectly. The combination wrenches have long, beefy shanks that deliver more torque and greater durability. The box-ends of these wrenches also have the Maxi-Drive™ feature to enable better performance than an ordinary box-end wrench.

    “The new Stanley® Mechanics Tool Set is designed with professional grade quality to meet the demands of those who take pride in their work and rely on their tools to successfully complete the job,” says Bill Merrill, Vice-President of Global Mechanics Tools for The Stanley Works.

    The new Stanley® Professional Grade Mechanics Tool Sets are available in six sizes: 62pc., 96pc., 122pc., 151pc., and 246pc. All sizes, except the 246pc., are readily organized for instant use in a highly durable carrying case with patented snap latches. The sets can be found at Wal-Mart, Pep Boys and Ace and have suggested retail prices of:

    • 62 pc. - $59.99
