REED Valve Wheel Wrenches grip the rims of hand valve wheels securely and provide leverage for opening and closing. Valve wheel wrenches are the solution for handling hard-to-open valves. Choose a wrench based on the hook opening. The hooks work without gouging the wheel rim. 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. Construction of the wrench also permits it to bend before it breaks, thus warning users of excess loads.
