Just throw away your basin spanner’s. This tool does the job. I’ve been using them for years. When you first use it, it can be tricky. But once you get the knack, you won’t look back. It comes with two size heads for gripping nuts etc. And because it’s slim, it fits into very tight and awkward spaces. But what I like more about it is that you can use this on boilers! Where it is difficult to get in between components. So it’s not just for basins etc. It’s a handy piece of kit that will aid you in tightening or un tightening any hard to get to nuts on basins or boilers. Always have one in my kit.

This and a box type tap spanner are the only ones you will need In your van. This spanner is awesome but will drive you crazy at times. It gets into tight spots. It does however sometimes slip as it has a joint just below the claw at the top and the claw just won’t seem to grip when your in the tightest spots with one hand trying to hold back your wish to just smash the old tap out and leave. All in it’s the best tap spanner if it’s sort.

Ive tried many different tap spanners over the years but this really stands out, the thin jaws make getting in to tighten/loosten tap nuts that are tight to basins a dream, build quality is excellent and you have no concearns about the main shaft bending under torque like i have had with lesser basin spanners.

This is the industry standard, in fact you can tell a lot about a plumber by his tap wrench, if they have this then you know they know what their doing, any other wrench may cast doubt. I honestly think it’s an great tool.

Ive used a lot of different basin wrenchs and found the the grip on the nuts was never as good as id like it to be, these teeth on these actually grab the nut really well, the fact I can attach a wratchet spanner onto the end of these to get a really good seperates this from everything else and blows all the others out of the water...absolutely love these!

The only basin wrench to own in my opinion. Solid, well engineered and invaluable on odd sized nuts on baths, basins and boilers. My only gripe is the nut to secure the other claw isn't the best design, I've lost a claw this way, but you can buy them separately, so it was replaced

For me, this is the market defining basin wrench. I wouldn't be without mine. The ends are easily lost and it's annoying to have to buy the bigger claw separately but good solid tool.

Very simple and easy to use. A few accessories are available to use with this, making it very useful. Only thing I would change is to somehow fix the jaw on so it can't fall off.

I just can't work it in the right spaces I need it... I find this tool infuriating! I always have it in the box and I always smash my knuckles when I resort to using it. I'm sure it's my technique or maybe my fat stupid hands but I don't get along with it.

I have had this for many years now, about 5 & have been able to adapt it to many uses to enable me to give my customers a better gauge, ha, of what water pressure they have in their house. This is a crucial bit of kit when sizing & advising customers on their required boiler for example.

Right then guys, Tool Talk. I just wanted to show this Monument Basin Wrench. Had it for years, didn't realise all the benefits of it. So you got this, which is part of the Grip+ Range. I just used to use one of them Allen keys before. Makes light work of it really. So, the thing I don't like about ...
