About Snap On

Snap On tools are designed with professionals in mind and are built to last. But that hasn't stopped hobbyists, enthusiasts, and do-it-yourself types from building their own collection of high-end tools from Snap On, creating fully equipped garage workshops that are the envy of the neighborhood. The company has been manufacturing interchangeable wrenches since 1920 and has since expanded to make nearly any tool you can think of. Snap On products include hand tools like ratchets, hammers and screwdrivers, power tools like drills, saws and grinders, and diagnostic equipment ranging from circuit testers to gas analyzers. The company can also help you organize and protect your investment with tool storage solutions, such as traditional tool boxes, lockers and rolling cabinets. If you need to outfit your professional auto shop, try Snap On's shop equipment, which ranges from lifts to welding products to engine repair tools to sandblasters. Seeking out vintage Snap On tools and catalogues is a specialty niche for collectors interested in tools. Even though the company has been around since the early 20th century, they've managed to keep pace with the competition. The company has products that incorporate digital technology and more. The prices might seem high, but the tools are built for the long haul. You shouldn't have to replace them every year or two. Because of their durability, there is a good chance you can find a used set of tools that's still in good shape. After all, if they're good enough for professional race car drivers, then they're good enough to be in your garage, too.
