Some years back I needed another adjustable wrench and thought this might be handy. Rather than a worm gear at the head there is a slide on the handle that adjusts the jaws. Fit and finish of the tool is excellent and I like the color scheme but that’s where the positive ends. The slide mechanism is positioned where your hand or thumb will rest on it while using the tool and it opens very easy, way too easy, but typically binds when closing which means that it’s constantly creeping loose but takes fiddling to get it back snug again. There isn’t much more to say, it’s a horrifically frustrating tool to use, worse than a dollar store wrench. Current price is around $15, I don’t remember what I paid. If, like me, you saw this and thought it might be handy… it isn’t. I would give it less than 1 star if I could.
Time of ownership: half a dozen years roundabouts
Cost: $10-15, not sure
