Crescent wide jaw adjustable wrenches

Apex Tool Group is introducing its new Crescent Wide Jaw Adjustable Wrenches.

Crescent wide jaw adjustable wrenchesThis new line features serrations on slimmed jaws that generate up to four times more torque than traditional adjustable wrenches. Available in 6-inch, 8-inch, 10-inch and 12-inch, each wrench features a larger knurl for easier adjustment and a tighter jaw fit. The laser-etched scale (SAE and metric) on each wrench makes it easy to pre-adjust the jaws to the required fastener size. The black phosphate and lacquer finish resists rust and corrosion.

Crescent Wide Jaw Adjustable Wrenches meet the performance standards of the next size up—a 6-inch wrench has jaw capacity of an 8-inch wrench—which means the entire line exceeds ASME requirements for next level strength.

“We’re thrilled to offer a line of wrenches that lighten the toolbelt, since two wrenches can now do the work of four,” according to Brendan Walsh, product manager. “The wide jaw, accessibility and strength of these wrenches provide maximum utility and unique differentiation in this category.”

Crescent Wide Jaw Adjustable Wrenches will be sold individually and in a 6-inch/10-inch set at hardware stores, home centers, online retailers and industrial and commercial distributors beginning in February 2019.
