Apex Tool Group Unveils New GearWrench Slugging/Striking Wrenches

The new line of GearWrench slugging/striking wrenches from Apex Tool Group LLC are available in three styles to work with different industrial applications.

Apex Tool Group says GearWrench slugging/striking wrenches are designed for applications where the force or torque needed to loosen or tighten large fasteners is so great that a hammer or sledge is required.

The wrenches are offered in three styles: 6 point slugging, 12 point slugging, and 12 point 45 degree offset striking.

The large striking surface allows for more efficient hammer contact, transmitting more force to the fastener, while the compact handle length permits usage in confined areas. The offset handle of the 45 degree offset striking wrench is designed to clear obstructions.

Each wrench is made of alloy steel and features a hard stamped size marking on its handle. All have a black oxide finish for corrosion resistance. All styles and sizes, where official specifications exist, meet or exceed GGG-W-636e and ASME B107.410 specification.

“These new slugging and striking wrenches are a heavy-duty addition to the GearWrench tool offering,” says Jim Stewart, senior Article manager. “Their quality design withstands heavy sledging, resists springing, and is built to last.”

GearWrench 6 point slugging wrenches are offered in 14 sizes, ranging from 1-1/16 inches to 3-7/8 inches.

There are twenty-eight 12 point 45° offset striking wrench sizes that range from 1-1/16 inches to 3-1/8 inches.

There are thirty-three 12 Point slugging wrench sizes ranging from 1-1/4 inches to 4-5/8 inches.

All are available from industrial and commercial distributors, automotive warehouse distributors, mobile dealers, and online retailers.
