Category Information

In the UK, Wrenches are commonly called Spanners. But whichever name you know them by they are a type of tool that is made from a tough metal – generally Alloy Steel. They are used to turn objects – such as nuts and bolts – that need extra leverage.

At Howarth Timber & Building Supplies we offer Adjustable Wrenches in four sizes: 6 inch, 8 inch, 10 inch and 12 inch. The head of the tool is the adjustable part, allowing it to fit easily around whatever needs turning, which ultimately offers better grip and resistance.

Many of our Wrenches have narrow heads, meaning that they can ideally be used in areas with little space, including in cupboards and behind tricky pipework.

Adjustable Wrenches are sometimes referred to as Monkey Wrenches (particularly in the US) and Gas Grips.
