Considered an icon in the Australian and New Zealand tool industry, Sidchrome Tools is a brand of mechanic tools aimed at professional mechanics. It is a subsidiary of Stanley Black & Decker which is a part of the Hardware & Home Improvement Group. The famous jingle, ‘You canna hand a man a grander spanner’, made Sidchrome a household name all over Australia and New Zealand.
Established in 1942, Sidchrome has built a solid reputation among both professional and non-professional users, including mechanics, tradesmen, industrial users and home handymen. Its ‘Built to last a lifetime’ motto is evident with their lifetime guarantee against faulty workmanship and materials on most of the products in its extensive range.
In addition to supplying high quality, professional products that really do last a lifetime, the company is also renowned for its innovation in product development.

This unique and patented design is exclusively available on products bearing the Sidchrome name. If features an unparalleled arc design that is capable of increasing surface contact by more than 400% to increase the torque applied to the fastener. This prevents slippage and results in fewer injuries and rounded fastenings.
