Crescent Introduces a New Pipe Wrench Grip

Cresent Tools recognized the struggle that plumbers and other similar industries face during different applications. The struggles include pipe wrenches slipping, reduced leverage, harsh angles, and double the time it takes to complete a job. As a solution, Crescent developed an innovative pipe wrench grip to accomplish those challenging tasks.

“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. 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.”

The Cresent K9 Pipe Wrench Collection features the new and innovative grip. Integrated K9 Angle-Access Jaws bite in an arc of 30°, which is a lot more compared to standard pipe wrench operation limits. The Jaws provide unmatched access in tight areas, which makes these wrenches ideal for the plumbing, pipe fitting, oil/gas, fire/sprinkler, and MRO industries. For increased usability, the pipe wrenches come with a high-speed adjustment to make resizing quick and easy. Also, they feature a ratcheting head for one-handed use. Additionally, the eleven new products featuring the grips consist of of either cast iron or aluminum. The aluminum model is 40% lighter, reducing user fatigue.
