Since Kobalt recently went to the mostly Taiwanese koballt, the tools actually look and feel better than the old USA stuff.

That being said, customers dont like there nuts, bolts, screws, and plastic clips broken, or things scratched and rounded.

Granted, I paid nothing for the replacment, but I did have to make a trip to the local Sears to have the crazy lady at the counter ask me what I even kobqlt in my hand Also Snap-On will not warranty screwdrivers for abuse prying, etc. If it’s broke they fix or replace no questions Asked.
