Klein debuts extra wide jaw wrench – D509-8
By Alyssa Dalton
January 2, 2013 – Klein Tools has introduced a new extra-wide 8-in. jaw adjustable wrench, featuring a full 1-1/2-in. jaw capacity. The D509-8 wrench is designed with a minimally protruding jaw shank that also provides greater capacity in tight spaces, making it easier to reach nuts and bolts, says the company. The 4-threaded knurl worm gear helps balance this wrench for smoother operation and it allows the user to apply up to 30% more force, it adds. The tool comes with standard and metric measurement scales.
