Although these bear the brand name Craftsman, they are made in China, not in the United States. This does not necessarily make them worthless or bad. But as they say, you get what you give. The kit includes three adjustable wrenches and should cover most applications. These will be an ordinary home maintenance / garage toolbox. If you want to use them widely in vehicles or expensive machines, you may want to buy things of higher quality and better construction quality.

I will only use this wrench on plastic and nylon buckets, so wear will not be a problem, but as a fair warning, they are molded with low-grade aluminum, so if you plan to screw them tightly on steel buckets / buckets, don't expect them to hold up.

Good price setting. Little or no play in the adjustable chin. I don't see any mention of the function anywhere. Along the fixed chin is a ruler that shows how big the bolts you are working on. One side is SAE, and the other is metric. If you need a wrench on the other side, it's easy.

Hello, I have had a set of crescent wrenches since the early 1960s. The limit of these wrenches is size. This one is adjusted to a wider opening, not the entire wrench is 6 feet tall, and takes over the tool drawer. It is compact, but the opening is suitable for almost 90% of our household / garage needs. Therefore, it is convenient, the grip is good, and has been moved to the daily tool use drawer, just because of the daily / weekly multiple use. A great product, it looks lovely.

Good price wrench. It's a good build, the chin slides easily when you adjust, but you don't slide on your own when you use a wrench. It does not open when used, resulting in some stripes on the pipe or faucet. Overall, there is a good tool in the toolbox for minor pipe repairs, not compared to high-end stainless steel tools or anything, but for $10, you won't regret the purchase.

This wrench was on my wish list for some time before I bought it. I really don't have many tools. I need to put a table together and practice flat pressing with a crossbar. I soon realized that this was a good tool, but I needed an extra tool to assemble the bracket. This tool is very easy to use and very sturdy. I am not a handy person or anything like that, but I would say that for this price, it is very worthwhile, then some!

The Rettun/Tuffman tool is the best. I ordered these rubber belt wrenches for the car. The factory shift knob on the 2011 Shelby GT500 is almost impossible to remove without breaking the knob because of the use of a threaded lock that is stronger than the red lock. It's not easy, but the large rubber belt wrench does remove the factory ball without damaging it. Thank you, Rettun, for saving the day with your tools! Buy a pair and you'll like these wrenches and save them.

This is one of the tools you don't use often, but when you do need it, there are no other tools to replace. As you can see, the adjustable wrench has pins on either side of the great white shark, which are designed to insert the clutch of the air conditioner and even the hole at the end of the camshaft gear. The picture is really unfair. It looks cheap, but in fact it is very rugged. Of course it's not beautiful, there are some phosphate completion and locking mechanisms that are about rough that you can get. However, the thickness of the steel is very large, the weld looks very safe, and I think it takes a lot of force to bend this. Overall, I think it's a good purchase for value.

This is a rugged, universal adjustable wrench. The price is better than the other options, so I'm glad it finally became so strong. It adjusts smoothly, the grip is quite good, and I hope it is durable enough to meet the occasional household use.

I bought this for my water filter after breaking the plastic wrench, followed by and called one of the heavy ones from the hardware store. It works perfectly! Update: I was replacing the power steering pump on the truck last weekend. I tried to stop the pulley from turning, and I used temporary bolts to press it back. This belt wrench is perfect for the job. I'm not trying to judge, but I've seen people say the wrench slips on a small diameter, or when the oil is on the filter. I don't think they fully understand how belt wrenches work. I attached an illustration from the Milwaukee website to help show how it is' cam lock'.

Best Adjustable Wrenches Buying Guide

David Dawson
Share post:

Wrenches, like hammers or screwdrivers, are very simple tools. They have evolved very little over time since they are functional and do not need major changes. To help you with the choice of your wrench, we have created this buying guide in which we explain everything you need to know about these tools.

Wrenches are hand tools. It is a set formed by a jaw that is fixed to the body. The body of the key is usually the handle itself. In some models, also called “adjustable wrenches,” the end jaw is mobile and moves through a zipper opening and closing system that allows you to adjust the opening diameter.

It is one of the simplest and most used tools in all sectors. It is also one of the most accessible and economical that exists. Its main function is to loosen and adjust nuts and bolts. As a general rule, we find very basic designs with the jaw and the main body formed by a single piece of metal.

Now the time has come for us to explain the main criteria you must follow to make the best purchase. In this guide, we will explain in detail what you should look for to buy the best wrench in the market:

Size

The most important purchase criteria when buying an adjustable wrench is size. This use will depend on your use of your tool. Remember that you have adjustable and fixed keys. Each adjustable wrench has measured, for example, those of 14 inches, which offer different opening settings up to 14 inches.

Having clear the key size you need will help you when buying. For example, if you need a small and easy-to-transport tool, it will always be better to choose a set of fixed keys. In this way, you can leave all the keys you do not need in the box and be left with only the most appropriate for each job.

Handle

The handle is another decisive factor in the decision to buy a wrench. The force you can do will depend on the length of the handle. In this way, monkey keys have very long-handled, this allows the operator to make much more force. That is why they are used in plumbing and heavy assembly work.

The size of the handle will also depend largely on the user. A person with small or thin hands will feel more comfortable with a short wrench. On the other hand, people with large or thick hands need a tool with a large handle that allows them to hold firmly.

Use

Not all wrenches are made the same. Some are designed to deal with hard and professional jobs. These models are those used in mechanical workshops. Others, more economical, are designed for domestic tasks.

As for advice, every toolbox should have wrenches between 6 and 12 inches. The smallest keys, below 6 inches, are the most used in household and DIY work. They are also those used to work in hard-to-reach places and small spaces.
