Crescent K9 Angle-Access Jaws Pipe Wrenches
Tough Angles? No Problem for Crescent K9 Angle Access Jaws
Plumbers don’t often get the most ideal workspaces. In fact, it’s rare when they get unrestricted access to, say, a leaky pipe. Rather, plumbers often have to find the leverage they need from harsh angles, which often results in the wrench slipping off the pipe repeatedly, and the job taking longer than it would otherwise need to. Crescent has an answer: the K9 Angle-Access Jaws Pipe Wrench.
- Best fit in tight spaces due to 30° arc bite
- New design available on 11 products
- Available in cast iron and aluminum
- High-speed adjustment and self-adjusting models available
The Wrench According to Crescent
We just can’t pretend that plumbers and other professionals have this ideal setup every time they go to work, because that’s just not true. Other pipe wrenches aren’t designed to bite at an angle, even though that’s often how they’re used. So, we redesigned the teeth so that our new wrenches will hold and still turn at tough angles.
—Noah Steen, Product Manager
A Wrench for All Angles
The Crescent K9 Angle Access Jaws Pipe Wrenches advertise allowing “the best-in-class access in tight spaces.” We can’t necessarily validate that claim, but we can point out that the 30° bite arc that the new Crescent line features makes for a pretty strong case.
We had a chance to test them briefly at STAFDA and the teeth do indeed bite in at angles our pipe wrenches normally slip on. We’ll need to put some in the field for a couple of months before we can make a firm conclusion, though.
With what we’ve seen, it seems like it will be a nice upgrade for plumbers and pipefitters, as well as MRO workers.
The Crescent K9 Angle-Access Jaws now come on 11 different products. The new pipe wrenches come in both cast iron and aluminum, including models that feature high-speed adjustment as well as one-handed self-adjusting models that feature a ratcheting head.
