Wera the German screwdriving specialist are pleased to announce the launch of its redesigned combination ratchet wrench - The Joker. But what is actually behind this šwrench 2.0'- and was it really necessary to reinvent this simple screwdriving tool? As Wera emphasised at the fair, the "Joker" cannot only do everything that a combination ratchet wrench needs to do, but much more. In this respect the manufacturer points to four particularly striking product advantages that offer users added value and therefore constitute decisive sales arguments for the trade. Advantage 1: Holding function The "Joker" offers a practical holding function that allows nuts and bolts to be held in the jaw and easily positioned where they are needed. Fastening on to the thread can then be done quickly and precisely. After applying and positioning the nut or bolt, fastening can begin immediately - no additional tools required. No more time-wasting searches for dropped nuts and bolts! Advantage 2: Limit stop Constant re-positioning of the wrench? Difficulty holding fasteners in confined spaces? Easing off to avoid any risks of injury or fastener damage? That was yesterday. Today, the Joker prevents slipping off of the fastener head with its integrated limit-stop - no longer is the thumb needed to act as a depth stop. This makes things much easier, and allows significantly more force to be applied during fastening jobs. Advantage 3: Anti-slip effect The Joker's clever double-hex geometry delivers a very positive connection with nuts or bolts - it's a perfect fit. And the exchangeable, hardened metal gripping plate in the Joker's mouth literally bites itself into the bolt with its extremely hard tips. Both features combine to prevent any unpleasant slipping, even at higher torque. Advantage 4: Very small return travel angle Where conventional wrenches with a 60° return travel angle have to be turned over and over to tighten or loosen bolts and nuts in confined spaces, the "Joker" now offers a 30° return travel angle with a double-hex design. Along with the Joker's straight neck, this means that flipping the wrench has become a thing of the past. With the Joker, you can now loosen and tighten nuts and bolts, in situations where conventional tools fail, particularly in confined spaces where conventional open-jawed wrenches fail. The ratchet mechanism at the ring end of the "Joker" has a fine toothing design with 80 teeth, enabling screwdriving even when the space is very confined. All in all, the new combination ratchet wrench can solve screwdriving tasks in almost any conceivable situation rapidly and with great precision. And the user also has good cards in terms of the service life. A special forged geometry in combination with high performance chrome molybdenum steel and a nickel-chrome coating ensure high resistance to wear and dependable corrosion protection. The "Joker" by Wera is available in the conventional wrench dimensions 10, 13, 17 and 19 mm individually or as a set in a folding velcro pouch. The individual packing units are equipped with a "try me" function which allows the "Joker" to be tested on a bolt head out of plastic material.
