With 32 teeth — oddly enough, the same number the average Toolmonger should have — and almost two feet of leverage, if the Gator Jaw can’t remove your oil filter, you’d probably better let your mechanic deal with it.
The long handles also allow you to reach around those hot exhaust manifolds that manufacturers like to place close to oil filters.
IPA designed the Gator’s bent jaws so you can either use them inline with the filter to snake through obstructions or perpendicular to the filter to get more leverage — see the pictures above and below this paragraph. Besides removing some of the most difficult oil, fuel, and hydraulic filters, I bet the Gator Jaws would be first-rate tongs for turning hot dogs and brats on the grill.
At $40 to $50 Gator Jaws aren’t as cheap as most other filter wrenches, but they’re definitely more versatile.
