The Crescent APEX (Sparks, MD) Industrial u-GUARD series of non-marring covered tools gives protection and control on the jobsite. These patented tools allow the user to grab directly onto the drive tool while it spins freely inside the covers, increasing fastening control and significantly reducing contact from the rotating tool. Already recognized by Popular Mechanics in the 2019 Tool Awards, the Crescent APEX u-GUARD quick release bit holder received Best Bit Holder of the Year award.
For construction and industrial users, working near finished paint, cabinetry, door frames, light fixtures or other final finishes is always a risk. Rework can account for up to 5% of a total job cost. One slip with a traditional bit can scratch or mar the finish, leading to more work and more expense. The u-GUARD non-marring cover protects from scratching or damages and the thin wall maximizes access for tight spaces.
