With the release of the open-ended “Bionic wrench,” Loggerhead has finally addressed an issue most Toolmongers had with the original version: you need a crap-ton of room around the nut or bolt to get the wrench into position.
The new design appears to simply remove a big chunk out of the wrench’s head, leaving it to grab the fastener with four serrated jaw surfaces instead of the old version’s six. We suppose that it’ll give up some of the original’s grip as well, but grip is only useful if you can fit the wrench on the fastener. The old version offered little chance of slipping over anything.
What we’re really waiting for, though, is for Loggerhead to pony up for Lee Majors as a spokesperson.
