GearWrench offers the X-Beam, a patent-protected wrench handle design that increases hand contact area by up to 500 percent over traditional wrenches, providing greater comfort and control for the user. One end of the X-Beam wrench is forged at a 90-degree angle from the other end, and the tapered handle is thicker on both sides than a standard wrench. Whether working with the box-end or the open-end, the user will grasp the wider side of wrench beam instead of a thin handle edge as with traditionally designed flat wrenches. The wrench also features a 75 percent reduction in silhouette clearance (open-end outline), which allows access into tight spaces. The metric sizes will range from 8 to 19 millimeters. The SAE sizes will include 1/4 to 3/4 inch. The wrenches will sell in five-, nine-, and 12-piece sets. For more information visit www.gearwrench.com or call (800) 688-8949.
