Quiet Glide Cleanroom Thumb Ratchet
Brooklyn, New York. March 1, 2007.

Steritool expands their line of critical industry-specific stainless steel maintenance tools with the introduction of their new stainless steel thumb ratchet at the Interphex show in New York, April 24-26, 2007.

Designed for quick and easy access to sockets and fasteners in equipment installation and maintenance operations, the tool measures only 1.5” in diameter and fits in the palm of your hand. The 3/8” square drive center post is reversible for tightening and loosening operations. Smooth gliding internal roller bearings replace the traditional ratcheting tooth design, eliminating the risk of particulate generation during rotation, a major concern in critical areas. The Quiet Glide design increases functionality by reducing the minimum degree of rotation, a feature that can be especially important for hand-held maneuvering in tight spaces. For applications where the possibility of contamination from ferrous tools is unacceptable, all components of the new thumb ratchet are constructed from 17-4PH stainless steel, polished to a high luster finish, and passivated to ASTM A967.

The new ratchet complements Steritool’s expanding line of stainless steel ratchets, sockets, and other maintenance tools for critical processing industries. More information on the full line of Steritool stainless steel tools is available on their website:, or by calling 860 230 0012.
