Indian Trail, NC, Sept. 5, 2017 - For more than 75 years, generations of tradesmen and DIYers have come to know and trust LIQUID WRENCH®. Its newest innovation, LIQUID WRENCH Pro Penetrant and Lubricant, powered by FlashSight™ Technology, which originally launched June 1, 2017 exclusively at AutoZone stores, is now available nationwide.
This first-of-its-kind product features a built-in LED light located directly above the spray nozzle, enabling users to see where they spray and improving accuracy in low-light areas. This, combined with an innovative product formulation that delivers the power of a penetrating oil, able to cut through the toughest rust, grease and corrosion, and a long-lasting lubricant that reduces friction and wear, makes LIQUID WRENCH Pro Penetrant and Lubricant a truly versatile tool for all trades.
“We know that many of our customers are working in low-light environments every day - under a car, in crawl spaces, on a jobsite - and we wanted to build them a tool that would help make their job easier,” said Marshal Livingstone, VP of marketing. “Our new LIQUID WRENCH Pro Penetrant and Lubricant Powered by FlashSight Technology combines a powerful LIQUID WRENCH Pro Penetrant and Lubricant formula with the added utility of the built-in LED light they need on the job so they can literally see where they spray.”
Additional product attributes include:
• Locking on-and-off collar for convenient no-mess storage
• 2 spray options - with or without a straw
• Pro-grade anti-seize formula
• Safe on metal, painted surfaces, plastic and rubber
• Breaks down built-up rust and cuts through tough grease
• Corrosion protection on all metals including copper, brass & bronze
• Zero VOC
• Patent pending
LIQUID WRENCH Pro Penetrant and Lubricant Powered by FlashSight technology is available for $9.99 MSRP in 11 oz. cans.
