A while back Kobalt Tools invited a select group of industry folks, Super Chevy included, to preview the redesigned line of Kobalt Tools. We were brought out to Hendrick Motorsports compound in Concord, N.C., one mile from Charlotte Motor Speedway. During the meeting we found out that Kobalt has returned to its roots to redesign the tools that put Kobalt on the map in 1998. The new and improved Kobalt Mechanics Tools line is in all Lowe's stores nationwide and offers 344 products in the mechanics tools line, which are sold in sets or single units.

Kobalt's long-time race partner, the No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports team of five-time and defending NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, was integral throughout the redevelopment process so that the new line reflects the quality and breadth needed by both professionals and amateur car enthusiasts.

"I think it shows how committed Lowe's is to making Kobalt Tools a brand that everyone associates with quality and reliability. We work on cars that go nearly 200 miles per hour, and sometimes we need to make repairs in a matter of seconds. We need to know that the tool we pick up is going to get the job done. The upgrades to the Kobalt Tools line should make anyone feel comfortable, whether they are working on a highly specialized race car or doing a job around the house." said Ron Malec, car chief of the No. 48 Lowe's Chevrolet in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

The mechanics tools line comes with a Lifetime Hassle-Free Guarantee if any socket, ratchet or wrench is damaged or broken it will be replaced. Kobalt is taking hassle free to a new meaning with the re-launch of the mechanics tools line. Kobalt's Sockets for Life program, enables customers to get a replacement socket to keep the set whole if a piece should break or come up missing. You must register the socket set at or 1-888-3Kobalt after purchase in order to get a replacement socket. Kobalt covers the part, and the customer pays shipping and handling.
