IDEAL Brings Wrenching to the Next Level with Ultra-Precise & Comfortable Adjustable Wrench

Sycamore, IL, JANUARY 13, 2005 ­ IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC., a foremost supplier of hand tools for the professional electrician, today introduced an adjustable wrench certain to make traditional chrome models obsolete.

The IDEAL Adjustable Wrench is specifically designed with features and benefits that professional contractors require in a hard-working hand tool. Key to its success is a tight thumbscrew tolerance that won't loosen or wobble while being used - a common problem with chrome wrenches. The jaw opens smoothly and easily with laser etched markings guiding the contractor to exact inch or millimeter (mm) measurements.

Additionally, the extra-wide jaw capacity enables the user to handle multiple-sized nuts and bolts with a single wrench, rather than fumble for another tool at every turn. The ten-inch version of the IDEAL Adjustable Wrench opens a full 1-7/16 inch while the eight-inch model opens 1-1/4 inch. Its narrow jaw profile head is perfect for reaching into tight spaces where ordinary wrenches can't go.

Users of hard chrome wrenches will especially appreciate the IDEAL wrench's ergonomic handle. It is remarkably gentle on hand muscles even when high force is being applied. The handle form-fits to each user's unique grip to help reduce fatigue and deliver added tool control from any working angle.

While lightweight, the new wrench is no slouch when it comes to durability and strength. The head is drop forged and made of rugged alloy steel with a black oxide finish that protects against corrosion. The handle is made of a patented, polymer material that is extremely lightweight, yet strong enough to handle the most demanding applications.

The new IDEAL Adjustable Wrench is expected to be available in early 2005. MSRP for the eight-inch wrench is $20.65 (U.S.) and $26.35 (U.S.) for the ten-inch wrench.
