Electricians and contractors frustrated by finding just the right wrench to loosen a locknut now have an easy answer — add the new Gardner Bender Locknut Wrench (LNW) in any of three sizes from 1/2-inch (LNW-500) to 3/4-inch (LNW-750) and full 1-inch (LNW-1000) diameters.

Specifically developed for tightening and loosening locknuts, the new wrench features a thin profile that makes the frustration of dealing with normally super-tight locknut spaces a thing of the past. The new wrenches can be rotated in the direction of arrows clearly marked onto both ends of its sturdy steel construction, and a specially hooked tip latches onto the locknut, maximizing turning leverage.

The tool is durable, lightweight and can easily fit into a pocket. Available online or through most hardware distributors, the wrenches are approximately $10 each and often come in two- or three-packs including various sizes. The wrenches come with a standard one-year warranty.

Gardner Bender also carries a patented line of hand tools called “Circuit Alert” with snap-in sensors that detect AC voltage without contacting live wires. Included in the Circuit Alert line are non-contact AC voltage detectors, knives for wire-cutting and stripping, screwdrivers with insulated shafts and handles with interchangeable bits, wire strippers and pliers — again each tool in this line comes with sensors to detect voltage, adding to hand-tool safety on the job.
