The 210 series ball-grip screwdriver is designed with a 5-inch shank length in order to give the extra distance needed for fastening screws further back in the work area such as in a panelboard (distribution board, breaker panel, electric panel).
Other features include a color-coded cushion grip for easy tip identification, a fully hardened chrome vanadium steel shank, and magnetized high-precision black point tips.
In addition, the 210 Series “ball-grip” handle may not look like a conventional style screwdriver but there are many advantages to the palm-grip design. For instance, when gripping the ball-shape handle, an operator can apply their body weight behind each turn for excellent leverage while fastening which results in higher torque output. Also, the built-in cushion finger knurl allows for quick turning and fine tuning of small fasteners.
These screwdrivers are suitable for professional use such as electrical, industrial maintenance, and field service work, . Also, the cross-point models are recommended when working with JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard) screws.
