Mechanicsville, Virginia, April 20, 2021 – The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) has released their newest iteration of the “Kool Tools” series, highlighting tools and unique products discovered during the 2020 SEMA360 online event, and compiled by the SCRS Education Committee in the first part of 2021.

The presentation, led by committee members Toby Chess and Kye Yeung, continues in the spirit of the annual event. In past years, Education Committee members would walk the show, seeking out unique tools, equipment and offerings to the collision repair industry that could bring advantages to collision repair professionals. These may be highly unique tools, or sometimes, very common tools but with standout factors that set them apart.

“This year’s event was a little different in light of the virtual nature of SEMA360.” shared SCRS Education Committee Chair, Amber Alley. “Despite being a departure from the in-person gathering process, the team did a really remarkable job in sourcing some really unique and useful products and putting them through the paces in their facilities to identify some of the favorite contenders. Historically, the reviewed items were often personally purchased by Toby and Kye. They have typically always put them to use in a working collision repair environment following the show, prior to being featured in the presentation. I feel like the committee did a great job, sticking true to the roots, securing the tools, testing how the products held up and how their technicians liked the usability, before committing to including them.”
