Ken-Tool Corp. has unveiled a patented wrench in SAE and metric versions that provides eight of the most popular wrench sizes in one tool. The company says its new 8-in-1 Wrench delivers strength, versatility and convenience in a 7-1/2 in. (19 cm), 12 oz. (0.3 kg) slim profile tool.
The 8-in-1 Wrench is fabricated from cold forged, high-strength vanadium steel alloy. At the heart of the wrench is the "Slide-Twist-Slide" design to quickly change wrench sizes. To change the size, the user slides the carrier to the center, twists it 180 degrees and slides back to lock in place.
The SAE version of the 8-in-1 Wrench (#35775) includes the eight most popular sizes: 5/16 inch, 3/8 inch, 7/16 inch, ½ inch, 9/16 inch, 5/8 inch, 11/16 inch and ¾ inch. The metric version (#35776) has 10mm, 11mm, 12mm, 13mm, 14mm, 15mm, 16mm and 17mm sizes.
The "Stud-Thru" feature permits studs and bolts to pass through the opening. The 12-point closed box design needs only a 30-degree re-engagement arc for tight clearances.
The company says its unique wrench was designed by a professional auto technician for the professional mechanic and the D.I.Y. homeowner or auto enthusiast.
