Black & Decker Introduces the Ratcheting ReadyWrench®

16 Socket Sizes. 1 Amazing Wrench.

TOWSON, Md. -- No more guesswork, lost or missing sockets with the all new Ratcheting ReadyWrench® from Black & Decker. From the makers of the original ReadyWrench, the Ratcheting ReadyWrench features an exclusive ratcheting design that offers added convenience when completing DIY projects. Just like the ReadyWrench, the ratcheting version combines 16 of the most popular standard (SAE) and metric (mm) socket sizes in one hand tool.

The Ratcheting ReadyWrench makes short work of barbecue assembly, bike repair or automotive work -- with no socket set to store or organize. SureFit(TM) Technology guarantees the sockets on this handy tool fit both standard and metric bolts offering 16 socket options -- from 5/16" (8mm) to 3/4" (19mm) -- to cover most any project. With its short-pin design, the Ratcheting ReadyWrench easily slides over nuts tightened down on long bolts where even a 2" deep or longer socket will not fit. Color-coded socket sizes allow for easy visibility and the direction selector ring makes it easy to change directions when ratcheting.

"The addition of the ratcheting feature is a direct result of feedback we received last year from consumers who tested the ReadyWrench," said Martin Heckmann, Product Manager at Black & Decker. "This exclusive feature will save users time and allow them to work more efficiently."

The Ratcheting ReadyWrench is built to last -- made of forged steel with a black oxide finish for more durability. The Ratcheting ReadyWrench is a great value at $29.99 and also comes complete with a Lifetime Warranty.
