Never lose another allen key (fingers crossed)

Why do allen key sets have a habit of always missing the size you’re after (for me, it’s the 5mm). We’re convinced the solution to this bike maintenance irritant is to go colour-coded.

This set of allen keys from Sealey is manufactured from hardened and heat-treated chrome vanadium steel and boasts a fully polished finish. The keys range in length from 65mm to 175mm and in size from 1.5mm to 10mm and feature a useful ball-end option. However, it’s the colour-coded rubber coating for fast identification next time you need to do any spannering. And most importantly, hopefully you’ll be encouraged to replace the tool in its holder once you’ve used it.

    Is the coating insulating too? If so they would be extra nice to use in the winter instead of picking up freezing cold bare metal.
