When you can’t get a straight shot at a fastener with an Allen wrench, sometimes you can use a ball-end wrench — but you’re more likely to strip the head since less of the wrench makes contact. With its pivoting hinge, a Hex-Pro key wrench can reach those fasteners while still fully engaging the fastener head.
Hex-Pro key wrenches are manufactured from high-quality industrial steel, and they’re chrome-finished for corrosion resistance. The long handles provide good leverage while the heads swivel 180° to reach into tight locations.
You’ll find Hex-Pro wrenches sold as five-piece SAE sets, six-piece metric sets, six-piece star-drive sets, or individual wrenches. The kits come with a folding canvas tool roll and run about $35 to $40. Individual wrenches cost $5 to $8 apiece.
