    The game goes on:

    Double open-ended wrench allows setting of nuts even in confined spaces / Multi-talented among the open-ended wrenches with four decisive advantages / Available in the wrench dimension combinations 10 and 13 mm as well as 17 and 19 mm / Practical six-piece set in a folding pouch /

    Wuppertal. Since its market launch in 2012, the sophisticated JOKER combination ratchet wrench by Wera has been delighting users on account of its innovative functions. In spring 2014, the Wuppertal-based screwdriving specialist continues the game and deals out new cards – with the Joker scoring yet again with its double-jaw version.  

    Jaw at both ends:
    It is particularly effective in confined working spaces where nuts and bolts cannot be reached even with very flat ring wrenches because there is simply not enough space. So the player then has to change tactics and fall back on a hand that will hold the trump card in such cases. And with the JOKER double open-ended wrench, the player has an ace up the sleeve that will allow rapid counter turning and even access to nuts and bolts that conventional ring wrenches cannot reach.   

    JOKER plays on its advantages:
    This multi-talent among the double open-ended wrenches means that you have four decisive advantages in your hand at the same time. On the one hand it is the holding function – it simply holds the nut or bolt in the jaw without any need for auxiliary tools –escape from the jaw is effectively prevented. Threads can be engaged quickly and precisely.
    On the other hand the JOKER has a limit stop that prevents downward slip-off from the screw head. This not only makes screwdriving easier, it also enables much more power to be applied. Full leverage is possible because the thumb is no longer required as a depth stop.
    Additionally, JOKER proves it has “bite” thanks to its exchangeable, hardened metal plate with extremely tough metal tips which will just not let go of the screw. The plate serrations combined with the double-hex geometry creates a multi-point contact, form-fitting connection with the nut or bolt. The risk of slipping when high torque is applied is thereby effectively prevented. Users will be amazed at the amount of torque that can be applied with no rounding off. The secure multi-point contact and zero jaw flex makes Joker the ideal pipe union wrench (flare nut wrench) too.
    Not least of all, the very small return angle of only 30 degrees, which allows allowing screwdriving in very confined working situations, numbers among the advantages of the open-ended wrench. Indeed, this wrench only needs in half of the space required by conventional spanners. Together with the benefit of the JOKER’s straight head, it is unnecessary to repeatedly turn the wrench over.   

    Always the best cards in the hand:
    The double open-ended JOKER version is available in the wrench dimension combinations 10 and 13 mm as well as 17 and 19 mm. Additionally, Wera has compiled a practical set in a folding pouch which contains the two double open-ended wrenches as well as another four JOKER combination 80 tooth, 4.5° ratchet wrenches. This means that the user always has the very best hand to play and can counter-turn particularly quickly.
