Hundreds of uses in a single tool
AKRON, Ohio (JUNE 30, 2015) – Ken-Tool has unveiled the unique, patented 8-in-1 Wrench, in SAE or Metric versions, designed for the professional mechanic, and the D.I.Y. homeowner or auto enthusiast. Designed by a professional auto technician, this wrench delivers strength, versatility and convenience in a 7-1/2 in. (19 cm), 12 oz. (0.3 kg) slim profile tool.
It is fabricated from cold forged, high-strength vanadium steel alloy. At the heart of the wrench is the “Slide-Twist-Slide” design to quickly change wrench sizes. To change the size, the user slides the carrier to the center, twists it 180 degrees and slides back to lock in place.
The SAE version of the 8-in-1 Wrench (#35775) includes the 8 most popular sizes – 5/16”, 3/8”, 7/16”, 1/2”, 9/16”, 5/8”, 11/16” and 3/4”. The metric version (#35776) has 10mm, 11mm, 12mm, 13mm, 14mm, 15mm, 16mm and 17mm sizes. The “Stud-Thru” feature permits studs and bolts to pass through the opening. The 12-point closed box design needs only a 30-degree re-engagement arc for tight clearances.
For resellers, the 8-in-1 Wrench is available from Ken-Tool in an attractive shelf/counter display holding either 6 SAE or 6 metric wrenches (#35775S – SAE, #35776M – metric). The display is 5”w x 6”d x 8” h, and weighs 5 pounds (2.3 kg) when loaded and is UPS-able. The 8-in-1 Wrench is retail priced at $21.95 (MSRP). The retail display is priced at $65.70 – WD, $93.90 – Jobber. (All prices are US dollars.)
The 8-in-1 Wrench has wide range of shop and at-home market uses: Automotive, motorcycle, marine and farm maintenance/repair, engine repair, construction electrical, plumbing, HVAC, home projects, sporting/recreational, bicycles, furniture assembly, etc.
