Adjustable Spanners

An adjustable spanner or adjustable wrench as it is commonly called in America or Canada is a hand tool that can be used with multiple sizes of fasteners or fixings due to the adjustable jaw on the spanner. This type of tool allows the user to have superior grip and control over the fastener, allowing them to be tightened or loosened according to specification. These spanners come with different handle types including insulated and ergonomic handles, various jaw capacity (8 mm to 102 mm) and overall lengths (100 mm to 900 mm).

How does an adjustable spanner or adjustable wrench work?

An adjustable spanner works by having one fixed jaw, and another that is adjusted by using an adjustable screw that allows the jaw to be made smaller or bigger depending on the size required to loosen or tighten the fastener.
