“We are excited that both the HFT50 and UT15, which are among the newest additions to our growing list of innovative products, are becoming more popular with automotive aftermarket repair professionals,” said Bob Joy, S.U.R.&R. National Sales Manager. “We look forward to more tool and supply announcements in 2017.”
The HFT50 Hydra-Assist Flaring Tool makes on-vehicle brake line flaring fast and easy for the installer. It will create SAE and DIN flares including 3/16 inch, 4.75mm and ¼ inch sizes. The PTEN product guide notes the Hydra-Assist Flaring Tool “provides a hydraulic assist T-handle ram, a quick chuck for fast punch change over, an S-lock for quick assembly and a dual-handle placement for ease of use.”
“Brake repairs are the most common category of work performed at automotive shops in the U.S. This tool saves service professionals both time and money on these jobs,” Joy said.

The high performance self-fusing UT15 ULTRATough Tape is becoming a preferred solution for quick-fix applications at the garage or on the road. The PTEN product guide notes “This tape can be used to repair leaky hoses, tubing, wiring harnesses, connections and general purpose repairs. This airtight tape has no adhesive, resists UV, salt, oil and chemicals.”
“ULTRATough Tape is really the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of tapes. It’s ideal for short term repairs since it provides a waterproof seal and can be used in extreme temperature conditions,” Joy said.
