Hand tools are smaller, versatile pieces of hardware used to perform manual tasks. Hand tools are generally lightweight, ergonomic, and flexible enough to perform a huge variety of tasks in the workshop or out in the field.
The utilitarian nature of tools allow personnel to perform virtually any small, manual task with a well-organized toolset. Hammers, screwdrivers, knives, measuring implements and purpose-built tools can be used to assemble or disassemble hardware, make adjustments and measurements on the fly, and assist with almost any construction, industrial or electrical task.
Hand tools are durable and compact. They can be tossed into a bag, hung on a belt, or stowed in pockets for easy access.
