Product Description

The Craftsman 2-piece Strap Wrench Set Is a Must-Have Tool at Home and at Work

The Craftsman 2-piece strap wrench set is a must-have tool set that no home owner, do-it-yourselfer, or professional should be without. These handy strap wrenches are ideal for taking off an oil filter, installing a hard-to-reach drain pipe, or just opening and closing bottles and jars. The applications are endless.

The 2-piece strap wrench set includes one large- and one small-handled 16-inch strap wrench. The large-handled wrench manages items up to 6 3/8 inches in diameter. The small-handled wrench manages items up to 4 inches in diameter. Made of cushioned plastic, the handles are comfortable to hold. The straps are made of strong, reinforced rubber that grips most anything and will not break. Just slip the strap around the item, tighten it until it grips securely, and turn. Friction keeps it from slipping. The set is lightweight: just 1.25 pounds.

  • The Craftsman 2-piece strap wrench set won't loosen and will not break
  • Endless applications for jobs at home or at work
  • Set includes two 16-inch strap wrenches

The Craftsman 2 pc Strap Wrench Set is a good value

These are not the same quality I expect with the Craftsman label but they work okay.  I added these to my tool set in my workshop and they fit well in one of the drawers in my tool chest.  The small one is used when I change the oil on small engines with spin-on oil filters.  I haven't tried using it on an 18 HP Onan.  These old garden tractor engines have a blower housing that covers most of the oil filter body.  It might work but I question if the strap might get cut on the blower housing.

cheaply made & poorly designed
Like most of the others that have submitted their reviews, my experience was very disappointing with these strap wrenches. I tried using both of these to remove an oil filter that was mounted vertically which required using the wrenches "upside down." Because the straps are designed to slide down into a channel instead of through an enclosed slot, it was very difficult keeping the straps in the handle when using inverted. Further, the anchor for the strap on the small wrench drops into its anchor point instead of being entirely encased like on the large wrench, so it almost immediately popped out when pressure was applied while inverted. And, finally, the rubber/elastic nature of the straps cause them to slip out of position unless constant pressure is applied.

Nice combo of strap wrenches

My husband and I purchased these for some small jobs around the house and they work well. The different sizes are handy depending on the job at hand.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Does it's job well at home

Good tool for home owner. Will do the job for plumbing or jars in the kitchen, both big and small. I don't know if it would hold up in an industrial application due to the plastic, but for at home it's just find. The rubber strap is good and thick and seams like to won't snap like the cheap dollar store item I had before this one. Recommended for at home use.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good strap wrenches

Seems to do the job, grips oil filters and other odd shaped items pretty easily. The rubber rolls up and coils neatly for storage.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Rubber strap wrench

Great useful tool for many items from oil filter to plumbing nuts. They do not mark up brass nuts like pipe wrenches. Very good purchase.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works Fine for Occasional Uses

I've owned these wrenches for 15+ years. I use the large (red) one weekly to remove a pool filter (similar size to an oil filter) and it does the job excellently. Good grip - no marring. I've not used the small (blue) one very often, but the strap on that one does have a tendency fall out before you can tighten the wrench on whatever you're trying to grip. Some minor engineering should be done to secure the straps better, I ended up squirting a bit of silicone caulk in the housing and that seems to keep the straps in place. Of course this would not work if you had an application where you needed to thread the strap independently of the handle - but I've not found such a situation.
