User Rating:  / 2

An adjustable wrench for turning soft pipes, a plumber's tool of choice.  By design, the pipe wrench simply works.  

Hardened Self Locking Pivoting Toothed Jaws - will not deform before the pipe failure, the more force is applied the tighter the grip and teeth will dig into pipe,  turning the other way ensure quick release

Cast Markings - will endure harsh environments

Tapering I - Cross Section - maximum strength for the least material; radiused corners for comfort during use

Elongated Hole - easier hanging during those breaks from the hard work

Knurled Adjustment Piece - for better grip

Instructions?  Adjust the jaws until they fit snugly around the pipe.  Face jaw opening to the left for clockwise tightening.
