Electrician tools are expanded with Klein Tools new Extra-Wide Jaw 8” adjustable wrench. It features a full 1 1/2” jaw capacity, the same capacity as a standard 12” adjustable wrench. The shorter handle makes it easier to reach nuts and bolts in confined spaces.

The Klein Tools Extra-Wide Jaw 8” Adjustable Wrench (Cat. No. D509-8) is designed with a minimally protruding jaw shank that also provides greater capacity in tight spaces. A 4-threaded knurl worm gear helps balance this wrench for smoother operation and it allows the user to apply up to 30% more force. It comes with standard and metric measurement scales for faster adjustment and a wider handle for added comfort.

“Customers have told us they are looking for compact and functional tools,” said Senior Product Manager Gary Lalla. “This wrench provides a short 8” tool length and enough jaw capacity to handle most electrical, HVAC, plumbing, and maintenance applications.”
