Work smarter, not harder my first boss use to say. Not only does that apply in the ultra-competitive world of yogurt shops, but is a nice universal rule.
This Lug Wrench is geared 32:1 to easily loosen those dirt crusted lug nuts applied by an over-zealous mechanic with an air-powered tool by actually increasing the pressure you apply to loosen a lug nut by thirty, plus two! For instance, you need to only apply 2.6 ft/lbs of pressure to loosen a nut torqued to 85 ft/lbs. Now that’s geeky!
One other nice feature is that the lug wrench “holds” two lug nuts at once securing it more firmly and providing better leverage than a ratchet. This little 3 pounder is great to stick in the car in case you get a flat.
The gearing of the Lug Wrench enables the average motorist to loosen lug nuts easily, even if your mechanic tightened them with an air-powered impact wrench! This Lug Wrench is small enough to fit in any vehicle, so you can change the flat tire yourself without the added hassle and expense of a tow truck!
The Geared Lug Wrench comes with 17, 19, and 21mm sockets, which also fit 11/16″, Â¾”, and 13/16″ lug nuts (uses standard Â½”-drive sockets). Just slip the Lug Wrench with the correct socket over a lug nut, and place the leverage socket on another lug nut on the same wheel. Turn the crank on the wrench clockwise, and the lug nuts will loosen easily! The 32:1 gearing means that it only takes 2.6 ft./lbs. of pressure to loosen a lug nut torqued at 85 ft./lbs! Replace the wheel, and reverse the action of the wrench to securely tighten the lug bolts.
The Geared Lug Wrench is made of cast aluminum, and weighs a mere 3 pounds. It also comes with a heavy-duty zippered pouch. Distance between lugs (center to center): 4″ min. to 5 3/8″ max. Backed by a 1-year manufacturer’s limited warranty.
