COAST Products Featured in Tool-Rank’s Editors Pick

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

COAST Rapid Response KnifeWe are proud to announce that COAST Products has received attention from another leading tool website. Recently, Tool-Rank.com has featured our products in two separate articles – one suggesting items to include in an emergency kit, and another highlighting the Rapid Response knife as a Tool Rank Editor’s Pick.

In the emergency kit article, the author suggested using the Bosch Click & Go System as a housing for a 72-hour post-disaster kit. This emergency setup is intended to assist a family in the days just following a disaster, during the lull before federal emergency services kick in. As we saw with Superstorm Sandy, families often have to fend for themselves in this time period, and a 72-hour kit is a lifesaver in this situation. Tool-Rank.com included four COAST products in the kit: the HP7 LED flashlight, the HL7 LED Headlamp, the Rapid Response knife, and the 2-LED Pro Pocket pliers.
