CRAFTSMAN Tools, long popular with DIY mechanics and professional auto technicians alike, has expanded its Automotive Specialty line with the introduction of 53 new tools.  New category additions include products for wheel and tire management, servicing cooling systems, changing fluids, telescoping and retrieval, as well as engine and other general maintenance needs.  New wheel and tire management tools include a Lug Wrench with a universal design that fits SAE and metric common passenger vehicle lug nuts, as well as a lug wrench that collapses for convenient storage.  Other additions include Tire Gauges and Inflators, a 3-Piece Wheel Socket Set and a 5-Piece Torque Extension Set. The new Auto Assist scan tool will retrieve OBD2 trouble codes, and coupled with the Auto Assist app, allows users to set maintenance reminders, view instructional videos explaining codes, and schedule repairs at local shops. To help maintain the engine, CRAFTSMAN has introduced Spark Plug Boot Removal Pliers that are specially shaped and rubber-coated to prevent tearing, as well as a Fuel Line Disconnect Tool, Serpentine Belt Tool, and Spark Plug Gauge.

CRAFTSMAN tools and storage equipment are sold at major hardware and auto parts stores nationwide and the full product line can be viewed at
