Wera Hex-Plus 4 Metric L-Shaped Hex Key 9-Piece Set (Chrome-Plated)

From Wera comes this high-quality L-shaped metric hex key set for hexagonal socket screws in a wear-resistant practical clip fastener. The extra-short arm of these tools makes them ideal to work on difficult-to-access screws and fastenings, eliminating the need for users to file or saw down longer tools, which can do damage to the integrity of the keys. The chrome plate finish protects the tools from corrosion and guarantees a long service life.

Features & Benefits

  • The Hex-Plus profile offers a larger contact surface within the screw head, reducing the notching effects to a minimum and almost completely eliminating the risk of damaging the screw recess.
  • Hex-Plus tools fit into every standard hexagonal socket screw.
  • Up to 20% more torque can be applied thanks to Weras design.
  • The chrome plate finish offers outstanding surface and high corrosion protection, guaranteeing a long service life for these keys.
  • The extra short arm means these keys can be used for particularly confined and hard-to-access jobs. This removes the need for users to cut down longer-armed keys, which in turn does damage to the integrity of the key and removes the corrosion protection from the separation point.
  • The spherical drive profile of the ball-tip means it is possible to swivel the axis of the tool to that of the screw. This enables angled, around-the-corner screwdriving jobs.
  • Each key has their size laser-engraved for easy identification when rapid tool access is required. Take-it-Easy L-keys are also colour coded according to their size.
  • Wear-resistant size markings to make it easy to identify tools.
  • The practical clip fastener ensures that the L-keys are held securely but are easy to remove when required.

Typical Applications
