Reed® valve wheel wrenches grip the rims of hand valve wheels securely and provide leverage for opening and closing, making them the ideal solution for handling hard-to-open valves. Choose a wrench based on the hook opening. The hooks work without gouging the wheel rim, making the job far safer. OSHA inspectors can assess penalties for using a pipe wrench on a valve wheel rim as wrench teeth can leave sharp burrs on the wheel rim, which result in hand injuries. VKVW fits standard valve nuts and is made of heavy-duty mechanical steel tubing, while VWALP1 and VWALP2 offer a low-sparking benefit due to their aluminum-magnesium alloy construction. They also bend before they break, thus warning users of excess loads.
The double-ended RF10 has forged alloy steel pipe wrench jaws on one end and a V0 size valve wheel wrench hook on the opposite end. The cast alloy steel RF10 is designed for gripping pipe, test plugs, packing glands, and flange nuts. A hook end assists in opening and closing valves while the length of the wrench provides plenty of needed leverage. The hook end fits hand valve wheels (up to 5/8” rims) without gouging the wheel. Use of the RF10 prevents problems with leaving sharp burrs on valve wheel rims, which can cause hand injuries. The handle is painted with a chemical-resistant powder coating for long-lasting durability and dependability.
