The 8-inch Bionic Wrench™ is a new type of hand tool that teams the versatility of an adjustable wrench with the simplicity of pliers. With a simple one-handed squeeze, the 8-inch Bionic Wrench™ automatically sizes and grips 16 U.S. and metric-sized nuts and bolts, distributing equal force on all sides of the work. When the handle is squeezed, six hardened steel jaws converge and firmly grab a nut or bolt on all sides. The Bionic Wrench™ will not slip or round off nuts and bolts like other gripping tools. Users can tighten or loosen their work with ratchet-like speed because there is no need to remove the wrench from their work between turns.
