indra / Cranked wrench key

indra
indra

Once a screw does not release by the first try because it is tightened well or rusted, many people start asking themselves: Do I turn it the right way?
Lots of handyman try to figure out the right direction by turning harder and harder in both directions.
The consequences:
broken threat, broken screw head, damaged tool.
The solution: “indra“, the innovative cranked wrench key.
“indra“ is handled intuitively. The spiral-shaped torsion of its steel body shows the direction of the threat of a regular screw. As a result, the user starts turning the key unconciously to the right direction.
