Default What kind of wrench to use?

     

I need to torque a cyclinder jug but its shape gets in the way of a regular (ratchet) torque wrench. How am I supposed to torque it when it only seems a regular flat wrench will fit?

They make an attachment that has the ratchet square on one half and an open end wrench on the other. Its either that or just hand torque it down with a boxed end wrench. They are called Crowfoot and sell for 3.97 online at sears here is the link let me know if it works for you or not.

Thanks for the info! I'm going to hit up SEARS tonight to see if they have it in stock, otherwise I'll buy it online.

Just came back from SEARS with special wrench in hand. Looks like it will do the job!

i'm not pro in physics but plugging this tool to wrench would offset the pivot point wich would alter the amount of leverage applied to the nuts for the same amount of force applied to the wrench. All i'm trying to say is : i think that it would screw up the reading of the torque wrench.
