About Park Tool
Park Tool originated from the observation of Howard Hawkins, a bike shop owner who noticed that there was a lack of high-quality tools available for bike mechanics. After the observation Hawkins decided to take matters into his own hands and began creating his own tools.
Driven by his passion for bikes, Howard designed and manufactured tools in his small shop in Minnesota. Park Tool started to catch the attention of other mechanics and bike enthusiasts due to its durability, precision, and user-friendly design.
As time went on, Park Tool expanded its product line, supplying a range of specialized tools for every bike repair job imaginable. From tire levers, to multi-tool sets, Park Tool became a one-stop shop for bike maintenance.
