A quick grip, without having to sift around the tool box for the right socket, this 2-pack ratcheting clench wrench gives you 6 and 8 inch options that both easily span a wide range of sizes, so even if you’re guessing on the size of a bolt, you’ll have the power to give it a solid turn. Built tough and designed to work as long as you do, this pair is backed by the strength of the Craftsman Forever Warranty, so you can count on it, for life. Whether you’re a handy man, repairman or just love wrenching, toss these essentials in your tool box and get the job done right.
Maybe you have a ratchet and sockets, and maybe you have an adjustable wrench, or even fixed wrenches, but if you don't have the new Craftsman clench wrench, you are missing out! This wrench folds up like a pocket knife, and unfolds with a ratcheting head that clamps top the bolt head and provides excellent torque and no slip. It is ideal for jobs requiring a wrench immediately when you may not be able to lug your tools around for an assembly or repair. Take it with you in your bike pack or put one in your glove compartment! As an added bonus it can also manage eye-bolts, hooks and even wing-nuts, too! I love my clench wrench, it is perfect in a pinch!
The tool is great for tight spots that may be difficult to gin in with a socket and can have quite a bit of pressure on it, but if working on a car I found it difficult to have it grab on.
One of the best wrenches that you can buy.
Purchased as a gift for my hard to please husband. He liked them. They are sturdy. Would recommend.
What a great tool. I have used this several times and love it. I went back and purchased two more of these for gifts. Very well built and I recommend this to have in the tool box for sure
brought these to give as a gif this holiday season...good price but concerned about warranty since they were on clearance. like the fold up feature
These are some Handy Wrenches to have , I use them often and they Work Great , Built Very Well , Seem to be Very Durable . I like them a lot . I would Recommend .
Great design and quality, works on a lot of bolts, I give it a 7 out of ten. However, for the guy who will use it over and over, it needs to be beefier, I notice that I had to treat it gentle, or it would break. Guy a little extra metal to beef it up would solve this problem.
These clench wrenches won't replace your set of combination wrenches for some jobs, but they're handy for carrying around when you're not sure which size you need and don't want to lug the whole tool box. The ratcheting feature works, and they easily size to fit the nut or bolt that you're attacking.
This is one of the great tools still made in the USA made by Craftsman. I used it to loosen fittings on the back of a stove to replace a gas line that was in a very uncomfortable position. Not only was I able to loosen the fittings easily, I did so in a few seconds and without hassle, making the job not seem like a chore.
this is the best tool for almost any job requiring a wrench or pliers. It grabs on so good and handles really easy. Very easy to twist to help get nuts and bolts on or off.
There is a fatal design flaw to this Ratcheting Clench Wrench- the wrench itself does not lock in place (grip) well (unless you are using the max size- 7/16" for the smaller, and 3/4" for the larger). The wrench is awkward to get into place when unlocked (in "ratcheting" mode) because it just flips around (and, after a while, it actually leads to a rather sore wrist from the struggle). Once you get the wrench on whatever you are trying to tighten or loosen, you then have to struggle to get it to grip if it is not the maximum size because it will not lock on. It just slides around whatever you are trying to grip (and it does not matter if it is a hex, a square, a wingnut, or an external-TORX). I have used many Craftsman ratcheting products as well as many varieties of Craftsman wrenches. I had high hopes for this product. However, while it is a great idea in theory, the design is horrible. Do not waste your money on this product. You will just end up very frustrated!
Rating at this present time. If your looking for quality and workmanship with conjunction with a great long standing guarantee no other compares! I recently had a stroke, and even with my medical restrictions, I can still find a tool that can assist me with what ever project I'm attempting.
very handy wrench,it is small and it folds like a pocket knife which makes it very portable,the wrench locks in several positions which makes it handy for getting into tight spaces,it also ratchets which i find the most handy feature for tightening or loosening nuts and bolts in tight spaces.
This is a great design by Craftsman and work amazingly. It's nice how you can lock the handle in different positions to access nuts more freely and easy.
I wanted a wrench that I could use that did not take the time to adjust the size by turning or pushing something to adjust to the nut or bolt. I like it so that you can just squeeze the handle and it would adjust itself for you. Whish there were bigger sized.
My husband was very impressed with the Craftsman 2 pack ratcheting clench wrench. He played with it for a while and kept mumbling how he has never seen anything like it before and how neat it was. I bought it for him as an extra Christmas Gift but I have a feeling he will use this more then he will his main gift.
This wrench seems like a great tool. The only problem is that it needs some type of simple instructions to help you determine which direction to apply and torque the wrench when trying to tighten or loosen an item.
