Also, the "head" is so big and bulky it won't work in many locations. The examples shown all have a ton of space around them which is flat out unrealistic.

This was my first thought. They have never been under a sink that was plumbed by a sadistic octopus with water dripping on your head, flashlight in your mouth and a cupboard in your back

Exactly!

Like most wundertools. Clever but impractical.

I'm not sure on this one. The multiple heads I would imagine would cause less slippage than with an adjustable wrench surely and it's the slippage that causes stripping? Not saying I am right but I imagine it differently to you

If it had a lock like vice grips then, minus the bulk, it might be a pretty good tool if you don't have time to find the right size wrench, but even then, regular adjustable wrenches are probably still better

The thing with an adjustable wrench is you have to sink the nut into the head with 4 points of contact.

Shirley? Are you calling me Shirley? And just so you know, I have never been involved in stripping.

u/debloons Aug 19 '20

Or just buy a normal wrench set that won’t strip the bolts and can fit into tighter spaces

2

u/emartinezvd Aug 19 '20

Or understand that this wrench is not meant for high torque applications and use it when appropriate and convenient

A tight fitting bolt Will bend the jaws 100%

u/SpinnyBois Aug 19 '20

Wrench is wrench because wrench work good
