Grip-Tite Super Sockets in Sears Stores Starting November 2007

GRANGER, Ind. (Oct. 29, 2007) – America’s newest generation of sockets – Grip-Tite Super Sockets – will make their debut at Sears Stores beginning in November, 2007.

Known for its line of Craftsman tool sets, Sears will market the seven piece Inch and Metric Grip-Tite Super Socket sets at all of its stores nationwide. Created to be the best method for tightening or removing nuts and bolts, Grip-Tite Super Socket sets hold or capture nuts and bolts for easy installing and removal, and are guaranteed never to round out a nut or bolt.

Sears will be one of the first retail stores to market the Grip-Tite Super Socket sets nationwide. Television’s QVC as well as Amazon.com are two of several other outlets nationwide selling the sets, but Grip-Tite Socket staff members believe Sears will give their company a further boost in sales and publicity.

Having Sears as a National Distributor of Grip-Tite Super Sockets is fantastic, said Brian Harker, Managing Director of Better Tools & Fasteners. We have had so much interest in the Grip-Tite Super Socket product line – phone calls, emails, etc., but it was not always locally available. With Sears carrying it, Grip-Tite Super Sockets are locally available in virtually every city in the U.S. A great product, teamed with great people.

Headquartered in Granger, Ind., Grip-Tite Super Socket sets utilize Advanced Camming Technology (ACT). Grip-Tite Super Sockets have six cams that are elastically held in place. These cams expand over and onto the bolt or nut, causing the cams to gently grab the bolt or nut – enough to hold it in place but light enough to easily remove the bolt or nut by hand. This expansion is such a small portion of how far the cams can expand, that even after millions of times, they continue to expand and grab.

Sears is one of the nation’s largest retail stores specializing in clothing, footwear, bedding, furniture, jewelry, beauty products, appliances, housewares, tools, and electronics.

Grip-Tite Super Sockets are a rounded bolt remover, and a bolt holder.
