When tightening or loosening objects that are circular in shape, you’ll want to use the Reed® strap wrench for the job. This wrench is designed to easily wrap around the pipe, and it stays in place through the static friction of the gripping strap. Specially used for plumbing fittings, the strap wrench is a great choice for workers who are constantly handling pipework.
Strap wrenches provide gripping power without scratching or deforming plastic or polished metal pipe, and can be easily used on plastic pipe, filters, or any slick or smooth surface with ease. Strap wrenches work well on irregular shapes, too. Reed® has included an extra strong, coated polyester strap with the wrench to provide slip resistance and durability to last. SW12A30 and SW18A48 have extra-long straps for increased leverage on large diameters.
