September 2020 Tool of the Month – Crescent’s K9 Angle-Access Jaws™ Pipe Wrench

New Crescent Pipe Wrenches Grip and Turn from the Tough Angles Plumbers Frequently Face

Most plumbers would agree that you rarely get a nice, clean, open workspace to tackle a job. They need the leverage of a pipe wrench, but they often have to do it from a harsh angle that reduces that leverage drastically. The result is a wrench that slips off its target and a job that takes twice as long to get done.

That’s why Crescent Tools—one of the most trusted brands of professional hand tools—developed innovations to its new line of pipe wrenches so that they actually work in the real world that plumbers and pipe fitters live.

“We just can’t pretend that plumbers and other professionals have this ideal setup every time they go to work, because that’s just not true,” product manager Noah Steen said. “Other pipe wrenches aren’t designed to bite at an angle, even though that’s often how they’re used. So, we redesigned the teeth so that our new wrenches will hold and still turn at tough angles.”

Crescent’s K9 Angle-Access Jaws™ bite in an arc of 30 degrees—much greater than typical pipe wrench operation limits—for best-in-class access in tight spaces. Ideal for professionals in the plumbing, pipe fitter, oil and gas, fire and sprinkler, and MRO industries, the new line boasts 11 products available in both cast iron and aluminum (40% lighter to reduce user fatigue). The high-speed adjustment makes resizing quick and easy, while the steel self-adjusting pipe wrenches feature a ratcheting head for one-handed use.
