Lowell’s Simplex and Warnock strap wrenches allow users to loosen and tighten an odd shape without scratching, denting or crushing highly polished or painted surfaces.
The wrenches can be used to loosen or tighten frozen fittings, machine and vehicle oil filters, small handwheels, PVC pipe, knurled fasteners and knobs and turned shafts. Both wrenches have a baked-on epoxy finish that is hard and solvent-resistant.
The Simplex strap wrench features a cast metal handle, a unique nose configuration and a durable polyester fiber strap that is coated with latex for extra grip.
The Simplex comes in four handle lengths, including 6-inch (4-inch standard diameter capacity), 12-inch (2-inch capacity), 18-inch (5-inch capacity) and 24-inch (12-inch capacity) lengths. Strap widths range from 1/2 inch to 2 / inches and strap lengths range from 17 inches to 54 inches. Custom straps are also available.
The Warnock strap wrench offers the same basic features as the Simplex, but feeds its latex-treated strap through a drop-forged shackle. The shackle swings away from the handle for quick strap adjustment and securely holds the strap in closed position and provides extra tuning force.
The Warnock comes in three handle lengths, including 12-inch (2-inch capacity), 18-inch (5-inch capacity) and 24-inch (12-inch capacity) handles. Strap widths for the Warnock range from 1-/ inches to 2 / inches and strap lengths range from 17 inches to 54 inches. Custom lengths are also available.
