Thread Detective®/Thread Identifier
The Thread Detective® is a precise and easy-to-use thread identifier for both nuts and bolts. It is especially well suited for distinguishing between similar inch and metric threads. Thread Detectives® are made up of steel identifiers in the most common thread pitches strung on a wire lanyard. Permanent, easy to read size markings won’t peel off and are chemical resistant tested and approved. Shatterproof, color coded gauge dividers allow recognition between inch and metric strands at a glance. Our unique Thread Identifiers (aka thread checkers) are available in Metric only, English Standard only, and a combination unit of Metric and English Standard. Our Thread Detectives® are equipped with a 3-3/8 (85 mm) ruler for measuring stud lengths. The ruler can be printed with your company or customer's information for promotional use. For your convenience we provide extra long wire rope for those hard to reach places, as well as loops on each end for convenient hanging.
