4-Piece set is 100% Made in the USA

SYCAMORE, IL, SEPTEMBER 5, 2013 -- Pratt-Read Tools, LLC, one of the oldest operating tool makers in the United States, is now offering a 100% Made In America four-piece precision Hook and Pick set for professional contractors and serious DIY'ers.  
 
Sold under the Pratt-Read brand, the tools are some of the first introduced since the company was acquired by IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC. (www.idealindustries.com) in 2010. 
 
Simple yet reliable, Pratt-Read hook and pick tools are used for separating wires, and for removing or retrieving small fuses, O-rings, gaskets, washers and other loose parts too small to pick up with fingers. They're also perfect for punching holes and marking metal or plastic surfaces for identification.  
 
Designed for long-term value, the tools feature heat-treated alloy steel blades lacquered to resist damaging corrosion. Tips are manufactured to precise tolerances to ensure accuracy. The ergonomic 4-flute handles - made of rugged, impact-resistant cellulose acetate - feature a unique dimple on the tail end for fingertip control.
 
The set (part # 82061) includes a small scribe, 90 probe, complex probe, and 180 hook to accommodate a variety of professional or Do-it-Yourself jobs.
