New insulated EV tool kit from Laser Tools

New from Laser Tools, this robust 3-drawer toolbox (part number 8328) contains a selection of fully insulated tools to suit the needs of any mechanic working on hybrid and electric vehicles, or by electricians.

The hand tools are suitable for live working up to 1000V AC / 1500V DC and include insulated combination pliers (35mm jaw opening) and insulated side cutters (19mm jaw opening) both with two colour VDE insulated handles with slip guards.

Insulated screwdrivers are included: Ph2 x 100mm long, flat 5.5mm x 125mm long; 5x insulated open ended spanners: 8, 10, 12, 14, 17mm. For spannering, an insulated 3/8″D ratchet (72 teeth); 9x 3/8″D insulated sockets: 7, 8, 10, 12, 14, 15, 17, 19 and 22mm; length 71mm, together with a 100mm extension bar providing greater access.

Also in the set, an insulated cable knife ideal for stripping standard cables, and a 420mm long flexible magnetic pick up tool, with 250g pick up capacity.

To check for the existence and/or absence of high voltage, a CAT IV 1000V voltage tester is included together with a disconnect and shut down digital timer used to accurately measure the required shut-down period between switching off the ignition and disconnecting or reconnecting the vehicle’s battery.

You’ll find three cable end shrouds for use on uninsulated cables: 24mm (OD) x 20mm (ID) — all incorporate flexible gripping collars to prevent damage to cable insulation.

All tools are safely stored within the drawers in EVA foam trays to help keep them organised and easily accessible. The toolbox also includes a top tray, ideal for storing fixings and safety tags/signs, and incorporates an top carry handle, as well as side handles for easy lifting, plus corner protectors to hold the drawers closed.

Made from high-density polyethylene plastic with its high strength-to-density ratio, the toolbox can also be used as a step if needed (max weight capacity: 120kg).

The Laser Tools range will be on display on the Tech ‘n’ Tools stand at this year’s Auto Trade EXPO, which takes place from Saturday and Sunday, October 15-16 at the RDS Simmonscourt in Dublin.
