“Zinc Master” Tethered Hex Key Set
Over the years I can’t tell you how many times I’ve dropped a Hex Key or Allen Wrench while changing Zincs underwater. But I can tell you how many times I’ve found that tool after sifting around in the silt for 20 minutes. One time……not a very good record for sure.
The reality is that it isn’t about the cost of a single Hex Key or Allen Wrench; it’s about being efficient and completing the job. You don’t want to have to surface, change out of your gear and come back with a new tool. Or worse yet, you tighten the shaft zincs to snug and then lose the tool. Now you run the risk of throwing the Zinc if you want to run the boat.

The Hex Key Set includes ¼”, 3/16” and 5/32”tools. These fit all Camp Shaft Zincs up to 5” Shaft Diameter and all Camp Rudder Zincs up to R7, a high quality wrist lanyard with clip is also included. You can carry the tools on your wrist or clip them to a “D” ring on your BC or Weight Belt.
*The ZincMaster Tool Set uses high quality Hardened Tool Steel hex keys. Which are then nickel plated. We don’t use Stainless because SST is more brittle and leads to breakage. While the Hardened Tool Steel, is superior in this application, the plating will allow surface rust to form. To impede the rust process, always rinse in Fresh Water and Air Dry.
