GAINESVILLE, GA - Count On Tools Inc., a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, announces that the KeyDisc tool holder from PB Swiss Tools has been awarded a 2010 red dot design award.

With more than 12,000 submissions from more than 60 countries, the international “red dot design award” is the largest and most renowned design competition in the world. The award-winning products are displayed in the red dot design museum.

As part of the red dot design award, the KeyDisc was awarded with the “red dot” seal of quality for high design quality. The KeyDisc tool holder impressed a jury of top-caliber experts with its superb and innovative design. Following the July 5th ceremony, the KeyDisc can be viewed at a four-week special exhibition in the Red Dot museum on the Zeche Zollverein site in Essen, Germany, the European City of Culture 2010.

The PB Swiss Tools’ KeyDisc design was a successful cooperation between PB Swiss Tools and the industrial designer Paulo Fancelli.

The PB Swiss Tools KeyDisc keeps key L-wrenches readily available for every situation. The tool holder is available for all chromed L-wrenches as well as for the powder coated RainBow® versions in sizes from 1.5-10 mm.

With its new shape and design, the KeyDisc holder provides easy storing and access to tool sets. The clear disc can be rotated around the holder to lock the tools in place for transporting the tool set. To use the tools, simply rotate the disc clockwise as far as it will go and remove the keys by twisting the L-wrench forward. It then can be effortlessly removed from the holder.

PB hex keys feature a perfect-shaped ballpoint end that allows users to turn the screws with an angle up to 30°. PB Swiss is the only manufacturer to offer such a large angle for ballpoint hex keys, resulting in both versatility and uniqueness.
