Product Description

The 8-inch Bionic Wrench is unlike any wrench you've ever seen before. In fact, it looks and works more like pliers than a wrench. This cleverly designed tool has a pair of spring-loaded handles and a circular head that's fitted with six hardened steel jaws. As you squeeze the handles, all six jaws slide toward the center and lock onto the head of the nut or bolt. This unique mechanism allows the Bionic Wrench to grip hexagonal, square and even rounded fasteners. It fits six standard sizes ranging from 7/16 inch to 3/4 inch, and 10 metric sizes from 11 millimeter to 20 millimeters. This ruggedly built tool is made of hardened, cold-rolled steel and features a rust-resistant black-oxide finish. And it's worth noting that the Bionic Wrench is proudly made in the USA and it's guaranteed forever. -- Joseph Truini

Customer Reviews:

  • Logger Head Tools BW8-01R-01 8-inch Bionic Wrench
    Ingenious. I didn't use it on a tight nut/bolt where there may be a slippage problem for some one with a weak grip. It is great for all other situations and nullifies the need for lots of SAE & Metric wrenches. I suspect I'd prefer the old fashioned wrench for tight nuts/bolts or situations where my grip is insufficient to prevent slippage and subsequent damage to the nut/bolt (i.e. rounding)....more info
  • I don't see a use for it.
    Most nuts are out of reach or not out in the open. The only way you can use this on any thing is if the nut has free space all around it. So I grab an adjustable wrench and leave this one collecting dust....more info
  • Think small
    I always liked the idea of these things, but they need to be smaller to get into tight places. Never will replace my power drill. ...more info
  • You will never use it
    This can only be used where you have a ton of clearance on EVERY side of the nut or bolt in question, and it turns out there are few bolts where that is the case - I bought one a year ago, and have yet to use it even once (though I pulled it out a number of times) because there is never enough clearance on every side. It is one of those items that seems like it should work, but is useless in the real world....more info
  • Works As Advertised! Don't know what the problem is...
    I don't usually write reviews for tools--I'm more a literature guy. Still, when I saw the negative reviews for this gadget tool, I felt I had to put in my two cents.

    First, the tool does what it's designed to do. It's a great adjustable wrench that helps grip nuts and bolts with great force. It's easy to use, very much intuitive. You place it over the nut or bolt head, squeeze, and turn. With very little practice, you develop a quick rhythm of releasing the grip, returning the wrench to a start position, and gripping again for a other tightening or loosening turn, much like a ratchet. It's all really quite simple.

    Of course, if you're doing work where you require a ratchet with an angle head or an extension to increase your reach to get you into tight spaces, e.g. engine work or some other application where you would NEVER use pliers, then don't go reaching for the Bionic Wrench expecting miracles! It works like a plier works, as advertised, so it's foolish to expect anything else from this tool. Sticking it deep into an engine where your hand barely reaches and expecting it to accomplish the impossible just because it's called "bionic" is just plain silly.

    That said, if you're looking for a well-made, durable tool to take the place of several box wrenches and pliers for simple tasks, then this is your tool. If you're looking for some magic method for removing your exhaust manifold, hire a professional mechanic and leave the work to someone smart enough to choose the right tools for the job. ...more info
  • Great Product
    Most ingenious product. Works perfectly as described. Particularily useful securely gripping a circular item. To avoid marring the surface I wrap the item with 1/16" leather....more info
  • Not a replacement for standard open and/or box end wrenches...
    Straight forward, they work. If you have easy access to the nut or bolt that you are trying to tighten/loosen they work really well and are comfortable to use.
    But if you are working on anything that is a bit tricky to get access to (such as anything to do with exhaust systems or anything under the hood of a car) these fall way short.
    You need a lot more horizontal (or vertical) movement with these then your standard wrenches. And there are just some things that you can't get a box end wrench on (this is how this tool works, very similar to a box end wrench).

    All in all they work, but not as well as they would like you to think....more info
