A better alternative is a quick adjustable wrench with a slide mechanism. Although I haven't used the Crescent Rapid Slide Adjustable Wrench or the Kobalt Quick Adjustable Wrench, there are a number of wrenches that are virtually identical to the Kobalt but with different brand names and colors, and they do what the Black and Decker was hoping to do. They allow you adjust the size of the wrench quickly and smoothly, position it snugly with the push of a finger, and get all the torque you would get with a traditional adjustable open end wrench. The one I have has a different brand name, but it far superior to the B&D in function and execution.
The Black and Decker wrench works, but it's more of a gimmick than a valuable addition to your tool chest.
The ruberized unit provides a strong and comfortable grip. My only objection is probably a minor one-the outer finish is more crinkly than smooth and shiny-a cosmetic concern. I wish that the day may return that American companies would make their products with American workers in the United States. Enough of Chinese-made products.
All-in-all a terrific product!
But lets talk of the 97.98% of cases where an adjustable open-end wrench is just what is wanted and needed. Here's one that adds something useful -- it adjusts wider and narrower at the touch of a button. Well, a spring-loaded momentary-on rocker switch, actually. Convenient for your thumb -- doesn't matter whether you're right-handed or left-handed -- there's this rocker switch. Press one end of the switch and the wrench width opens up. Press the other end and it closes up. It doesn't take much practice to get the hang of it, and in an instant you can resize the wrench to fit your application.
My first use the other day involved replacing the fill-valve inside my toilet tank. Where I needed a wrench was to loosen the supply tube's hex nut -- you know the one, it holds the bottom end of the water supply tube to the shut-off valve that comes out of the wall below the tank. I also needed it to tighten the same nut when I installed the new tube. It did the job admirably. Yes, my old manually adjustable crescent wrench would have worked, but that takes a bit more effort to get the wrench jaws to the right diameter. With this battery-operated wrench, the adjustment was performed in an instant with the push of the rocker switch with my thumb, and without trial and error.
I'll be using this wrench a lot in the future, no doubt about it.
Yes, the grip is a bit bulkier because of the rubber coated battery compartment that forms the grip on the handle, and the handle is a bit wider than a manually adjustable wrench. But it was actually more comfortable for me, perhaps because I have fairly large hands. (I suspect that people with small hands might find a manually adjustable wrench with a slimmer handle better for them.)
Anyway, the other thing is, this is a fun wrench to use, too, a nice toy for people who do handy things. Well worth the $24 and change, I find.
