Update 6/5/2020

Regarding Coronavirus and the impact to PAC:

Following the lead of NYS officials & in adherence to CDC guidelines – PAC is returning to 100% on-site workforce June 8th, 2020.

As an “Essential Business” PAC never stopped critical functions. Our talented production, purchasing and engineering teams kept up with a surprisingly heavy demand – even with more work-from-home and social distancing, too. Thankfully, our team and their families have not been affected by the virus. Our hearts go out to those affected by this illness or the lockdowns.

Recent news stories have mentioned shortages of raw materials, food supplies and even automobiles. With our healthy, US-based manufacturing PAC is not experiencing any shortage or backorders at this time. We are grateful that PAC uses only Domestic suppliers. 100% of PAC designed components (aluminum extrusions and molded brackets) are American made and are sourced throughout the Northeast.

Finally, our industry-leading shipping speed, that had been slightly relaxed due to social distancing, is returning to our standard fast shipping! We appreciate your understanding over the last 2 ½ months as our staff, working in smaller groups, did an amazing job serving the customers. We are excited to return to full capacity in all PAC departments!

One final note – The PAC headquarters is continuing a policy of NO VISITORS at this time. Showroom visitation and walk-in orders will not be accepted. Send all purchase orders to orders@pactoolmounts.com.

Our customer service staff IS ALWAYS AVAILABLE by phone or email. Stay healthy and God Bless!

Thank you for your support of PAC products!

VP, Performance Advantage Co.

Toolok (P/N 1003-HD)

stable – with the mounting holes to the outside rather than in-line. In addition, the handle is redesigned for easier grip and is integral with the lower tool mounting surface providing a more positive grip.

Fit

  • The common-sized grip range remains identical (1/8”-1-1/2” dia.). The distance between mounting holes has been reduced from 2-7/8” to 1-7/8”.
