  • Strap Wrench #5

    this probably isn't the right place for this, but i don't see a "general questions" area.

    i have a rigid no.5 strap wrench and i was wondering how do i remove the strap to replace it? i looked at it, and saw two clips that look they could be removed, but wanted to ask before i tried it.

    i searched the forum for "strap wrench" but only questions about how to use this tool showed up.

    Most strap wrenches r pretty cheap so I just replace the whole thing but I am not sure what a # 5 is. If it is expensive I could be wrong .

      Drive the pin that is holding the strap out with a punch, replace the strap then drive the pin back in.

        fyi, never had good luck with the cloth webbing type of strap wrenches as they tend to slip.

        my choice of strap wrenches are the vinyl covered ones or the cheap rubber strap ones that grip. i even have some rubber insert slip joint pliers.

          Rick I agree with you. I have never had much luck with them either. Actually they r a pain in the butt .

            My #5 was great for changing the oil filter on my Ford diesel.

              ToUtahNow is right.
              Just drive the pin out and pop in a new strap.

              If you are having problems with the strap Ridgid makes two straps for this wrench one is for plastic and seems to grab a bit better. The strap for that one is more of a bright yellow than the super light yellow. We have customers who use the plastic strap for this reason.

              The standard strap is Cat# 32050
              The plastic strap is Cat# 32065

              Hope this helps
