Did you know that the Monkey wrench is one of the most important tools in a plumber’s possession? A monkey wrench can also refer to, and is another name for gas grips and pipe wrenches. Nowadays it is known simply as the adjustable wrench, monkey wrench being the old name for it. What is this monkey business? A monkey wrench is used for turning soft iron pipes and fittings. It is cleverly designed to lock on the pipe whilst pressure is used to pull the jaws tighter together. The monkey wrench also has teeth that can grip effectively. At times the wrench can be used to break a stubborn bolt or nut free. They come in various sizes and you will find your local plumber in Blackpool will have an array of them.

Fact: The adjustable wrench was patented 129 years ago last month! (In August 1888 a Swedish inventor Johan Petter Johansson patented the adjustable wrench)
