2005 National Hardware Show New Tool News Favorite:
Bionic Wrench
by Loggerhead Tools

Out of all of the new hand tools we tried out at the 2005 National Hardware Show, this one was our favorite. It is basically an adjustable wrench that conforms to a variety of nuts and bolts, and evenly distributes force on all of the work surfaces. It measures 8 inches long and weighs under one pound, and does the work of 16 US and metric wrenches... significantly lightening the toolbox! We found it extremely easy to use... it would make the perfect all-around household wrench for people of all levels of tool experience. When the handle is squeezed, six hardened steel jaws converge and firmly grab a nut or bolt on all sides. It's even great at removing fasteners damaged by other tools. And it's made right here in the USA.

The Bionic Wrench is now available for $28.95 by calling 1-888-564-4374 (1-888-LOGGERHEAD)
