Difficult becomes easy:
our low-profile and special bit drives

For our customers we offer the right adaptor and special bit drive for every fastening application. Get in touch – we would be happy to help you to decide which adaptor is best suited for your fastening application.

Low-profile bit drive

If screws and nuts are hard to get to, then low-profile bit drives come into play. Even here they allow precise and repeatable fastening. Equipped with the corresponding adaptor, low-profile bit drives not only make hard-to-get-to locations accessible, they also improve the ergonomics.

To best match the point to be fastened and the available space to the low-profile bit drive, there are a variety of bit drive profiles available, which can be categorised in two shapes.

  1. Closed low-profile bit drives for conventional fastening
  2. Open low-profile bit drives to fasten hoses and pipes

Pipe nut adaptor

Pipe nut fastening tools have an open socket. With this, the end of the tool can be put over a pipe or a hose or tube connection to fasten on a connecting piece. Nuts can also be fixed to shafts such as tracking rods, or screw compression fittings can be fitted to brake or hydraulic lines. The tool automatically returns the socket back into its open position to release the tool.

Integrated socket

Integrated socket tools are used for screw connections in very tight spaces. In a head like this, the socket is directly attached to the angled drive, so the space for a snap-on socket, which would otherwise be needed, is not required. This reduces the length of the bit drive by 50% in comparison to a normal angled drive.

Hold and Drive

Hold-and-Drive fastening tools hold an internal threaded bolt in position, while the outer nut is driven (tightened). To counter the rotation of the bolt, it has a shaped end which engages in a matching shaft. The shaft or bit holder snaps in and thus supports the fastening of the bolt and nut. A shaft-holding unit consists of a shaft holder to hold the bolt and a socket for the nut.
