Milwaukee Tool has announced it is expanding its offerings to include four new hose picks and two new sets. The company also is offering pry bars as individual tools, not just in sets.
The newly designed hose pick sets offer a puncture protection flat hose pick that eases user frustration and reduces the frequency of damaging hoses while loosening, pulling and prying at them, Milwaukee says.
These new hooks and picks feature an all-metal core for up to 50 percent more durability, a larger shank and a more durable tip designed to remove hoses. The comfort grip handles give users increased tool control and comfort while resisting harsh chemicals commonly found in garages that cause grips to deteriorate.
Mechanics often move from mini to hose picks when they need specific shapes to pry under hoses and gain longer reach to access their work while providing durability and leverage. Each pick has a specific angle for different applications and comes in 90°, 45°, flat and hook hose pick types, all with reinforced metal tips that resist bending when loosening stubborn hoses. The flat pick provides puncture protection and reduces damage to hoses. These chrome-plated tools provide rust protection and are backed by a lifetime guarantee, the company says.
These sets are available in a durable, long-term storage tray for easy access and organization. They are available in a four-piece hose pick set with the aforementioned pick types. The eight-piece set includes the four hose picks and mini-picks that have knurling for increased tool control while doing precision work.
Milwaukee Tool also announced it is offering pry bars offered in its four-piece pry bar set as individual products. The pry bars are designed for up to 40 percent more prying strength.
Sizes include 8 in., 12 in., 18 in. and 24 in., and all feature an I-beam design for up to 40 percent more prying strength, an all-metal core and a built-in hammer-ready strike cap that improves durability. These metal pry bars have a comfortable tri-lobe handle and a durable chrome finish for corrosion resistance and easy cleaning. Milwaukee offers lifetime guarantee on its pry bars.
They will be available at certified Milwaukee distributors in May 2022.
