SAN DIEGO (July 7, 2015) — Tool and equipment developer General Technician Equipment (GTE) has introduced SmartSnap, a convertible snap-ring plier tool designed to improve efficiency and productivity for technicians.
According to the firm, SmartSnap allows users to change quickly and easily between internal and external style snap rings via a single lever. In addition, the company claimed it is the first snap-ring plier to feature quick-release tips for simple changes between large and small retaining rings.
The tips are made of hardened steel and are designed with tapered, anti-slip ends for durability and a dependable grip, GTE said. Another feature is the premium, molded, ABS tray included with the tool for convenient storage, quick access and an organized toolbox.
In addition, SmartSnap is backed by a lifetime warranty.
“Through a commitment to design and materials that focus on optimum functionality, we strive to make technicians' jobs easier and their work life more enjoyable,” said GTE President Allan Paine. “SmartSnap is the latest example of that dedication and the latest in our ongoing new product announcements for 2015.”
