Tri Vice™ takes hold

Olympia Tools, the company behind the Roughneck brand of hand tools and workwear, is helping tradesmen and the serious DIY-er to get to grips with a common challenge.

In line with its commitment to sourcing innovative products that deliver real benefits to both stockists and end-users alike, the business has  introduced Tri Vice™ - a go anywhere, hold almost anything portable vice which can be used to hold materials whilst they're cut, drilled, measured, ground, filled and much more.

Vahe Der Kureghian, purchasing and marketing director at Olympia Tools, explains: "Most tradesmen and DIY-ers have at some point encountered the challenge of needing an extra pair of hands to hold items whilst they're working on them. In the workshop, they can call on a vice to meet their needs but onsite few of us have access to same luxury.

"Tri Vice addresses this problem. It provides a real alternative to a traditional vice. It's an extremely lightweight but highly durable plate vice which can be taken - and used - wherever it's needed. An ideal tool for builders, electricians, plumbers, pipefitters, carpenters, landscape gardeners and a whole host of other tradesmen, it is especially advantageous in locations where space is restricted - such as on rooftops, in lofts or for that matter, on most modern building sites."

Thanks to its intelligent design and carefully considered apertures, Tri Vice™ can securely grip materials as diverse as conduits, rigid steel pipes, PVC and ABS, as well as copper tubing and many timber sizes.

It holds these items elevated from the ground and prevents them from moving whilst numerous tasks can be performed. Aside from simplifying things for the user, Tri Vice™ also makes them safer. Those using power tools for instance can keep both hands free for the tool's operation.

To ensure Tri Vice™ can cope with the arduous demands of the modern site environment and reflecting the Roughneck ethos of offering 'tough tools for a tough world', the product also benefits from an all but unbreakable one piece construction.

In addition, it is made from solid steel with a powder coating for added durability. Olympia Tools is actually so confident in the product's robust nature that it is backed with a lifetime guarantee.

Further benefits include integrated measuring rulers as well as a lightweight and small size. This not only makes Tri Vice™ immensely portable, but also easy to store. In between use it can be hung on the walls of workshops, tool stores, vans, garages, sheds or other storage locations.

Commenting on Tri Vice™, Vahe concludes: "Through its Roughneck brand, Olympia Tools aims to offer products that combine quality, performance and innovation. In short, we are focused on making common tasks quicker, easier and ultimately more profitable for the tradesman. This in turn creates strong demand for our products and healthy sales for our stockists. Tri Vice is just the latest example of that commitment in action."
