The Gripper Pad Tubular Wrench

The introduction of the heat treated tubular end on wire line drill rods, outer tubes, locking coupling, and the mid bodies of the reaming shells necessitated a change to the existing product range of wrenches to accommodate a better grip solution for these exterior hardened products.

The retirement of the Wormmer Foot Clamp on mechanical hydraulic surface drill rigs brought about the practice of breaking the rod joint above the hydraulic chuck with a pipe wrench butted against the mass.

To facilitate the changes made to the consumable product group, Lee Kerr introduced a particular tubular style of wrench utilizing carbide inserts to insure a uniform grip to the surface of the component with equally spaced carbide inserts to minimize slippage and avoid injuries to the operator's hands.

Joint breaking of wire line rods and related core barrel components is no longer a chore with this eagle's talon-like wrench, and the design has an inherent safety factor not found in traditional pipe wrenches.

This wrench was designed for drillers to ensure a firm grip is at hand at the work station.
