Pipe Wrench handle Extension

Our pipe wrench handle extenders were developed as a means to safely reduce the amount of force required for tightening. A locking pin is used to attach the extender to the wrench for personnel safety and the pin is chained to the extender to prevent loss.

Example:

The approximate force required to tighten a 1" fitting on a:

14" wrench is 64 lbs. of force

18" wrench is 52 lbs. of force

24" wrench is 37 lbs. of force

The approximate force required to tighten a 1" fitting on a:

14" wrench with 24" Handle Extender is only 38 lbs. of force (40% reduction)

18" wrench with 30" Handle Extender is only 31 lbs. of force (40% reduction)

24" wrench with 45" Handle Extender is only 20 lbs. of force (46% reduction)


Pipe Wrench Handle Extension benefits:

  • The pipe wrench is pinned into position inside the handle extender for personnel safety
  • Knurled non-slip grip provided, 12" long for secure gripping
  • Properly sized to the wrench to reduce the risk of damaging the wrench or fitting
  • Made of standard aluminum pipe and designed to visibly bend before breaking the wrench
  • Light weight construction helps to reduce fatigue
