The new Cobra® Quick Set addition to the Cobra® Water Pump
Pliers family from KNIPEX Tools LP (Arlington Heights, IL) combines the features of automatic adjusting pump pliers with the
traditional push-button pump pliers. Distinguished by a blue button and measuring 10 inches in length, the Cobra Quick Set Pliers
feature a 2” gripping capacity and are the perfect tool for use in
confined or hard-to-reach areas where access to the nut or bolt is
difficult. The pliers are also ideal for use during repetitive work,
says the company.

Ingersoll Rand (Davidson, NC) has added a
new D5140 1/2” drill/driver to the IQV20 Series™
cordless tool line. This tool offers the same durability and high-power performance as the other IQV20
Series products and the versatility to switch between
the drilling and fastening functions in seconds,
says the company. The durable drill/driver is
engineered to stand up to harsh operating conditions. Features include:
• An all-metal single-sleeved locking and ratcheting chuck, which has carbide inserts to keep the
bit from deforming the drill/driver during tough applications.
• A housing case that protects the D5140 from breaking, as well
as from corrosive fluids and chemicals.
• A 16-position clutch that gives users more control over drilling and fastening applications. The clutch enables the operator
to apply the right speed and pressure to complete tasks without
damaging surface areas.
• The ability to be used on any material — including metal, wood,
