Crescent has announced a new line of wide-jaw adjustable wrenches, with key USP’s like wider opening capacities and micro-serrated jaws. The new Crescent adjustable wrenches are said to meet ASME performance requirements for wrenches the next-size up, meaning that the 6″ version meets the requirements for the 8″, and so forth. They say that, with the expanded jaw capacities, each wrench does the work of the next larger size. The jaws feature micro-serrations, or finely spaces grooves, which Crescent says provides a tighter grip on fasteners, helping to generate 4x more torque than traditional adjustable wrenches.
Each wrench also features a larger knurl, which provides a tighter jaw fit, is easier to adjust, and is less likely to bind up. SAE and metric size markings are laser etched into the wrench head. Finally, the new Crescent wrenches have a black phosphate and lacquer finish for corrosion and rust resistance.
The new Crescent Adjustable Wrenches come in 6″, 8″, 10″ and 12″ variants
