Is Lowe's Getting rid of Kobalt?
Consequently, is Kobalt owned by Lowe's?
Kobalt is a line of hand and mechanics' tools, power tools, and tool storage products owned by the American home improvement chain Lowe's. It is the house brand for both Lowe's in North America and their joint venture with the now defunct Masters Home Improvement in Australia.
Secondly, are Kobalt Tools lifetime warranty? Yup – I checked and Kobalt offers a Lifetime Hassle-Free Guarantee on their hand tools. I have returned and exchanged new Kobalt tools at Lowes before, but had never taken advantage of their warranty. But warranty eligibility is not the point.
Similarly one may ask, where are Kobalt Tools made?
Kobalt is currently made by JS Tools out of Las Vegas, NV, but they outsource the tools from Taiwan and China. JS Tools also sells under the brand name "Steelman."
Is Kobalt a good brand?
Both their high end craftsman pros, also the wrenches are very good as well in their pro line. Especially the made in the USA ones. But their base wrenches the raise panel are good quality, made in the USA and dependable. Their mid level and high end ratchets are good, but their base ratchet is not that great.
