Expanded Selection From Heyco

KC Tool is proud to announce an expansion to our offering of Heyco Tools, based out of Remscheid, Germany. Since 1937, Heyco has focused much of their attention on automotive tools, but over time has created a highly diversified portfolio of tools for every trade.

Though we have technically carried the brand for many years, KC Tool has now added to our catalog over 700 additional items for you to browse and buy. From industry professionals to the home DIYer, Heyco will make a great addition to your collection… We guarantee it. 


P.S. did you know the German pronunciation is “High-Co”? Although, we usually say it how you would think!

The Cold Is Coming. Prepare Yourself With New KC Tool Apparel!

Does it get cold where you live? It sure does here in Kansas City. But we didn’t want cold weather to stop us from expressing our love for German tools… So we made hoodies and beanies! Better yet, to celebrate their arrival we decided to put all KC Tool gear on sale. Shirts, hats, mugs, keychains; it’s all on sale until the end of the year! If I do say so myself, it might make a great gift for the German tool enthusiast in your life. Or yourself! I promise you will look good!


New Stabila Tape Measures!

Some of you are probably thinking, “Wait! Hasn’t Stabila always made tape measures?” Well, yes! But not like this!

Stabila has updated their entire line of tape measures and for the first time, KC Tool is proud to carry their long distance tapes! The new long tapes come in Y-frame and closed-case variations. The new pocket tapes come in two different lines: the affordable, reliable BM100 and the extra robust, nylon coated BM300s. All of the new tape measures come in an array of sizes, so we’ve got you covered from a few inches to hundreds of feet.

Get measuring and grab your new tape measures now!

Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City Fundraiser

KC Tool has held a fundraiser for local charities for the past three years and we are proud to keep that tradition alive in 2021. This year, we have partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City, who strives to build strong and stable neighborhoods by building strong and stable homes – actual, physical houses from the ground up. As tool fans, this couldn’t be a better fit, right?

We teamed up with @edcoutlaw to offer you a limited edition Knipex Cobra XS laser etched with the KC Tool logo, as well as the year and edition number. Only 100 of these will be sold. For each one sold, KC Tool will donate $100 directly to Habitat KC. Limit one per customer.

This collector’s item not only makes a great showpiece for your collection, but also helps those in need. That said, we know that it may be a stretch to ask you to help one of our local Kansas City charities. If you choose not to participate, please take a moment to consider giving to something you believe in. A little bit can go a long way in helping other people.

KC Tool ends decade long relationship with Wiha Tools USA

Kansas City, August 30, 2021

“KC Tool will continue to place the utmost importance on communicating and serving the customer. We are excited to keep growing as a business and expanding the market for German Tools in America” said Derek Tran, Owner

Since KC Tool was founded in 2011, the company’s core focus has been to offer the best German brands while providing the best customer service. Staying true to this tenet has allowed the company to expand to the eighteen brands we currently offer to customers worldwide.

While KC Tool is sad to remove a brand from the product lineup and apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause, their commitment to being America’s #1 German Tool Distributor remains unchanged. This decision only helps strengthen the commitment to their remaining manufacturer partners and the German tool community. KC Tool looks forward to growing and serving everyone for decades to come.

Stay tuned for future updates relating to expanded and new product lines via KC Tool’s social media pages and newsletter. Please direct any comments/inquiries to the Customer Service department at customerservice@kctool.com or (913) 440-9766.

KC Tool Volunteers For Habitat For Humanity

Last week, a group of us from KC Tool got the chance to volunteer for Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City. From a tree-lined street in downtown Kansas City (not all that far from the legendary Arthur Bryant’s), we spent the incredibly hot day installing new siding on two different homes.

We are all tool guys, obviously, and use them all the time. Let’s face it though, our main job is to SELL tools, so it was a great opportunity for us to get out there and spend a day USING tools. Though I think many of us were cursing being outside on one of the hottest days of the year in KC, I think I can speak for all us involved by saying it was an incredibly rewarding experience. It has been an interesting and tough time for the world lately and even more so for those who are less fortunate. Reading the stories of the future owners of the houses we were working on gave us perspective, humility and made us even more appreciative of our own lives. If a couple hours of sweat means the difference in someone’s life, then it is worth it.

We at KC Tool encourage you to volunteer. There is a need for people everywhere. It doesn’t take much to be a significant part of your local community and lift someone’s spirits. From the poorest neighborhoods to the most affluent communities, positive action and real change are always possible.

Take a look at some of the pictures we took from our day on site and be on the lookout for a special fundraiser coming soon to benefit Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City.
