    LED headlight

    The MSHD31 LED headlight provides a dependable hands-free lighting solution for tough job conditions. It is Class I, Division I rated, and features four light modes: high and low white beams for a variety of applications, red for night vision, and green for inspection work. The 66-lumen headlight pivots to direct the beam where needed.

    Safety knife

    The SK-10 Concealed Blade Safety Knife’s adjustable blade positioning design allows for four cutting points on a single-edge utility blade. Highly productive, the SK-10 delivers 4 times more cuts than a single-edge, fixed blade “gooseneck” safety knife. It is acetone-resistant for easy cleaning and fits both right- and left-handed users with no blade adjustment necessary.

    Safety cutter

    The Lewis K-710 is a fixed-blade safety knife featuring a patented locking safety hood that covers the blade instantly and automatically when contact with the cutting surface is lost. It allows easy blade changing with no tools required, a definitive depth setting of ¼-inch and ¾-inch blade exposure. An ergonomically designed handle provides left- or right-handed user comfort.

    Canvas hoist buckets

    Arsenal Hoist Buckets are equipped with a combination of strength and performance. Made of canvas with leather-reinforced stress points and bionic stitch work, these buckets are ideal for heavy-duty use in construction. With a molded top ring and nickel-plated swiveling snap, the new buckets provide a lighter-weight industry option with equally sturdy construction.

It features an ergonomic and ambidextrous handle, variable hand grip positions, integrated film cutter, and a quick and easy blade change. The S7 is an ideal tool for most stocking and warehouse tasks.

It offers 8 to 175 hours of runtime, depending on light selection, and weighs only 3.8 ounces. The headlight features a red LED emergency signaling mode that flashes the letters “SOS” in Morse code. Three AAA batteries are included.
