Footprint Tools are a British manufacturer of superior quality hand tools. They have a global reputation for their quality and craftsmanship since the 18th century.
Their range for builder’s tools has an international reputation for quality. This line includes the very best line pins in the market, which are chrome plated to stop them from rusting or wearing prematurely. There are many copies of this design but you’ll find that none match the quality of their line pin!
Their line of decorator’s tools have a no-frills design. Highly effective and designed for heavy use on the toughest job, these tools are made with professionals in mind. Almost all tools in this line have kept a traditional wooden scale tang handle as part of their design, allowing you to get a no-slip grip that is still easy to keep hold of.
Their woodworking tools have a time-tested design with a proven track record of top-notch performance. This range offers you a traditional selection of anything you could need, from hand saws to carpenter squares. You can rely on their woodworking tools to have been produced with careful attention to detail, using good Sheffield steel and high-quality wood for their handles.
Possibly the most famous and successful line is plumbing tools, featuring the world-renowned Footprint Pipe Wrench. The Pipe Wrench is particularly well-known for its innovative design, made of two parts: the drop forged hook with a toothed jaw, and a pressed steel frame with carefully profiled teeth, which lets you grip the workpiece tighter as you exert more pressure. The company has sold more than 15 million wrenches since their invention by their founder, Thomas R Ellin, in 1875.
No matter what you need, whether you’re a professional or a DIYer, you’ll find the perfect Footprint tool for the job.
