SPARKS, Md. — Apex Tool Group L.L.C. has introduced the Gearwrench line of slugging/striking wrenches to loosen or tighten large fasteners when a hammer or sledge is required.
The wrenches are offered in three styles: 6 Point Slugging, 12 Point Slugging, and 12 Point 45-degree Offset Striking.
The large striking surface allows for more efficient hammer contact, transmitting more force to the fastener, while the compact handle length permits usage in confined areas, the company said.
The offset handle of the 45-degree Offset Striking Wrench is designed to clear obstructions. Each wrench is made of alloy steel and features a hard stamped size marking on its handle. All have a black oxide finish for corrosion resistance.
All styles and sizes, where official specifications exist, meet or exceed GGG-W-636e and ASME B107.410 specification, the company said.
The Gearwrench 6 Point Slugging Wrenches are offered in 14 sizes, ranging from 1-1/16-inch to 3-7/8-inch.
The 12 Point 45-degree Offset Striking wrench is available in 28 sizes ranging from 1-1/16-inch to 3-1/8-inch.
The12 Point Slugging Wrench is offered in 33 sizes ranging from 1-1/4-inch to 4-5/8-inch.
