Black & Decker Launches All-New ReadyWrench(TM) - 16 Socket Sizes, 1 Amazing Wrench

No more guesswork, lost or missing sockets with this new all-in-1 Socket Wrench

TOWSON, Md., Oct. 6 / / - Today Black & Decker (NYSE: BDK) announces a solution to end the frustration associated with finding the correct socket with its new ReadyWrench (MSW100) All-in-1 Socket Wrench.

This all-in-one wrench puts 16 of the most popular standard (SAE) and metric socket sizes in one convenient hand tool. No need to stop and sort through a socket set to find the right size. Simply spin to a larger or smaller socket size. The ReadyWrench makes short work of furniture assembly, fixing bikes or car maintenance - with no socket set to store or organize.

Keeping track of individual sockets from a socket set can be a chore. Sockets go missing or get dropped constantly and misplaced. Socket sets can be tipped and scatter on garage floors, and are usually unorganized making it difficult to find the right size socket. The Black & Decker ReadyWrench puts an end to lost sockets and searching through a set to find the right size.

With its rotating heads that detent at 45 and 90 degrees, the ReadyWrench can be used like a ratchet for continuous turning. With its short-pin design, the ReadyWrench easily slides over nuts tightened down on long bolts where even a 2" deep or longer socket will not fit.

The ReadyWrench, with its multiple socket options and short-pin design, is a versatile and flexible tool - and a great value at $29.99 over purchasing a socket set. The sockets are cast to fit both standard and metric bolts with a special 6-point socket design, offering 16 socket options from 5/16"/ 8mm to 3/4"/19mm. These sizes cover most any situation or project.

The ReadyWrench is built to last, made of durable vanadium steel with a nickel chrome finish. Unlike standard sockets, socket sizes on the ReadyWrench are laser etched and color-coded for easy visibility. The ReadyWrench also includes a lifetime warranty.

Potential uses include furniture assembly, lawn mower blade changes, bicycle repairs and automotive tasks. The ReadyWrench will be available for $30 at major retailer stores nationwide.
