Malco Redline Tools
Malco recently launched their new Redline Handle group of hand tools. Redesigned in response to trade professionals out in the field, the Malco Redline tools are updated from their already extensive line of metal working and siding hand tool to offer better grips and other improvements.
The new handles on these Malco Redline tools are supposed to offer a more ergonomic and comfortable operating range for your hand. When we felt the tools on display at the IBS in Las Vegas, it seems like they did their homework. The tools all offered easy one hand operation since many of the tools now have compound linkage between the head to the handle. Also the close lock levers were easy to operate and held the tool safely closed when not in use. The new grips are a welcomed improvement over the previous dipped rubber/plastic style that has been the norm for so long. The grips now are made of a sturdy red plastic with black over molded rubber inserts. With over 20 different tools currently in this series, they should be able to fit almost any metal and vinyl requirements and are available at over a dozen online retailers.
