T-Rex® Brute Force® Tape Wins a 2020 Pro Tool Innovation Award


Avon, OH (October 1, 2020)This week T-Rex® brand received a Pro Tool Innovation Award (PTIA) for T-Rex® Brute Force® tape. Judging for the 8th annual PTIA Awards wrapped up as a diverse panel of judges made up of contractors, construction business owners, tradesmen, and media professionals came together to vote on the most innovative construction and outdoor power equipment industry products in the world. This year saw a particularly diverse and competitive set of entries submitted by top manufacturers from around the world.

Here's what the Pro Tool Innovation Awards judges said about T-Rex® Brute Force® tape:

To test T-Rex® Brute Force® tape the Pro Tools team wrapped it around Pro Tool Reviews Managing Editor and his F-150 and watched him pull it down the road. This is some crazy strong tape! It’s so strong, you can’t tear it—you have to cut it with a blade. Duct tape is still great for ductwork, but when you want pure strength, that’s when you turn to T-Rex® Brute Force® tape

After pouring over hundreds of power tools, hand tools, fasteners, and accessories, winners were judged and chosen based on their leading innovation in the industry. Winners tended to demonstrate notability in any combination of the following: innovative features, advanced power delivery, groundbreaking ergonomics, technological advancements, and value. The 2020 Pro Tool Innovation Awards recognize best-in-class products that are truly ahead of their time.

"In our 8th year running the PTIA Awards, we continue to be amazed at the level of innovation and design manufacturers demonstrate with their newest products. Brands really innovated and improved their products this year to achieve improvements in job site efficiency, safety, and productivity. We're also seeing new features, more run-time in cordless, and greater advancements in materials. While average products see incremental advancements, Pro Tool Innovation Award winners truly distinguish themselves in the industry and deserve recognition.
