About this deal

Turn the screw mechanism on the tool to open or close the spanner (i.e. to alter the width gap between its jaws) to the required setting.

The potential uses of an adjustable spanner are almost too numerous to mention, but in essence they all perform the same fundamental task. Their key role is to enable the tool user to achieve a firm tightening or loosening grip on multiple different sizes of fastener, as opposed to having to swap for a different non-adjustable spanner size every time they come up against a new gauge/diameter of nut, bolt or pipe section. Ratchet spanner sets offer this tool in various sizes. You can also get spanners with two ratcheted heads, providing two sizes in the same tool. For example, the Stahlwille 11mm & 10mm Ratchet Spanner is lightweight and appropriate for heavy-duty usage.

Adjustable Spanners at Toolstop:

Adjustable wrenches ought to be calibrated for width settings on a regular basis, and certainly before starting a new job (even if the fasteners you’re dealing with are the same size as the last time you used the spanner) Keep adjustable spanners and wrenches clean A hook spanner is curved and has a hooked nose or a pin at the end, allowing it to grip the nut or bolt. This pin connects with the hole, enabling it to turn the fastener. This is a special-purpose tool that can be used on ring nuts and is often used to maintain motorbikes and cars. Try to choose sizes that reduce the amount of play between the jaws and the fastener as much as possible. This will minimise the risk of slipping on the bolt or nut, and potentially damaging either it, the spanner, or yourself

When in use, the box spanner fits over the top of the fastener, meaning it touches all edges of the nut or bolt, and the Tommy bar is used to tighten or loosen it. The spanner’s size can be measured in various ways, such as Whitworth, BA, metric and imperial AF (across flats) sizes.

If you’re placing so much weight on the tool means it is not unlikely that the tool could slip violently or the fastener could suddenly give way. When doing DIY, the tools you use depend on the task at hand, and each tool has its own variations to suit your requirements. For example, whilst spanners are used to loosen and tighten fasteners, there are different types of spanners so you can find the shape and size you need. As a general rule, the larger the head size, the longer the spanner. JP started his company, Enköpings Mekaniska Verkstad, in Sweden in 1887. He always had a set of pipe wrenches to hand in his workshop. Each wrench fitted a particular size of pipe, but this meant having to carry around a variety of sizes. This is where his idea of an adjustable pipe wrench sprung to mind. He designed it so that its jaws could be easily adjusted to fit all pipes, irrespective of size. The pipe wrench is now known and sold worldwide. For those working with electrical equipment, insulated variations are available. For example, the Bahco 21mm Insulated Open Ended Spanner can be safely used with up to 1000 volts and is double insulated. Alternatively, if you require spanners of multiple sizes, then consider an open-end spanner set.
