2" crescent wrench
« on: December 18, 2010, 10:26:19 PM »
I seen a small display of these at a big market stall a few years back and had to have one.  My wife seen mine and wanted one too.  So I went back  and got her one.

It is actual steel  and fully functional, opens to about 8 mm. (5/16")   So far no uses for it  but its on my keyring just waiting for the "if I only had a tiny wrench right now"  moment.

When I was running squad I had one of them in my side pouch and one on my keyring.

They  saved our butts a lot of times when people would misplace the O2 tank wrenches. Or when bolts would come loose at the worst possible times.

 :hotdev:  To make that trick totally effective you have to hammer in a wrong type of key before breaking it off.  That renders any locksmith's services useless. :frustrated:

I have never actually done it but a few may have deserved such treatment.

Not too many hogs around here but anybody with the key to their 5 year old Nissan can open every other Nissan 5 years old or more.

  I did a lot of lockouts in SoCal for AAA, most people would cringe at how easy it is to open their car.   The only decent security on any car is a chipped ingition key.  Just don't lose them unless you want to find out how much a replacement costs. :omg:
