Innovative Gear From The 2016 SEMA Show

New tools for new jobs—and better tools for the same old jobs—were on display at the 2016 SEMA Show in the Tools and Equipment section.

Notable products from the New Products Showcase awards were a trailer storage system, a handheld fire extinguisher and a ratcheting flare nut wrench—all fresh takes on tools that have been around for a long time. The full list of nearly 100 entries is collected on the following pages.
