Ratchet for scaffolding installation
July 1, 2010
Wright ToolThe 10½-inch WrightGrip SB ratchet is an all-inclusive tool that features a 1/2-inch drive, 7/8-inch open-head ratchet, a replaceable hammer on the other side of the ratchet available with inserts in brass or steel, and a 7/8-inch open-end wrench on the end of the handle. The open-head ratchet allows for easier cleaning and quick directional switch letting the tool fit in narrower spaces making clearance easy. The ratchet is interchangeable with a 2-inch deep socket for final tightening on smaller scaffold diameters. The advanced opening profile places more metal in high-stress areas to stiffen the jaws, increase tool strength and reduce permanent jaw spread for better reliability. The carefully placed, precision-broached serrations keep the wrench seated on the fastener to increase torque and reduce slippage. For extra security, the WrightGrip SB ratchet has a lanyard ring that allows the tool to be tied off to the scaffold builder.
