        the problem is that it's basically an adjustable socket. when they cut away the socket so the 2 halves could open and close the material needed to be added back so that the halves would have sufficient strength to withstand the forces exerted from the wrench without breaking.

        it could work well in any area where an adjustable wrench would work. In a restricted area such as in an engine compartment it would be of limited value due to the increased thickness of the two halves.

          I think it already IS on the closeout table. I saw these at Sears not long ago but with the Champion name brand on them IIRC, that's Sears cheapo tool line. They were in a bin in the center aisle for less than $10. I was not impressed with them.

            HEY man,
            Where's the love?!?!

            You know, a few years ago Channellock came out with something very similar - a HUGE drill-chuck-based socket very similar to this idea. Of course it flopped! The darned thing was around 2"+ in diameter - and of course, by now it has worked it's way out of my main tool box (into the "yard sale" box).


            I was quite possibly the only idiot that bought one of those. (what do you think? brother-in-law gift??)

            Come on, I don't want to be the only idiot in line here too.



            I love tools!

                But WAIT!, they added the two socket halves to one of them fancy racheting wrenches...

                AND rubbered-up the handle.


                If you call now, we'll include this box of kleenex to wipe those tears away...and we'll also include this $29.95 in monopoly money so you'll have something worth a penny.


                If all you armchair inventors never part with any money for the cheesy stuff, it must be all our wives...

                    I noticed that too but didn't want to say anything Hawk.

                    We already had him on the ropes about the tool

                    I was holding back for later when he started to recover somewhat
