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.

Wrenches!

These rubber strap wrenches are pretty handy, especially if you are not entirely sure what you might end up needing a wrench for. High adjustability for conquer any job is always a nice thing.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Strap Wrench

I needed a way to tighten a large PCV connector and this worked great. I also found that this worked on tightening an oil filter on my Mucsle car without scratching the filter. Extremely satisfied!

This was a great addition to my tool box. The quality is good and with the 2 pieces, you pretty much cover all the sizes that you would ever need.

Pretty good wrench set

I was a bit skeptical of these strap wrenches. But, overall, I am very happy with their performance. I am currently using them to get stuck resin lids off of jars in the shop. They seem to work quite well. They give a lot of leverage and the rubber strap seems very strong. I am not sure about 10-years down the road when the rubber has started to deteriorate, but for now, they are very good. They have come in handy many times.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Rubber wrench

Found these new tools when I was searching for something to buy with the remaining amount on a gift card. These tools seem like they can come in handy with large items, such a an oil filter! Actually, my wife used the smaller one to open up a jar of jelly that got to hard to open up. Since these have the lifetime guarantee, I'm glad I got these. I just wonder how long the rubber will last before it become brittle and weak.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Useful wrenches.

I do restoration, minor repair and refinishing on firearms. These strap wrenches come in very handy removing barrels and other items when you can't leave any marks on the parts. The are also handy loosening filters, pulleys and idlers on automobiles The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because I wish the straps were stronger. The grip very well.

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.

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.

Indepence Day

My son-in-law bought me a set of these 7 years ago, I think they got tired of me calling to come open up or unscrew something. Ever since I got mine it's been like independence day. I've lost the small one somewhere along the line so now buying me a new set and the oldest her own set. Just used mine to take off a shower head. Grannys unite and get you a set and get your independence back also.

NO LONG DRIVE TO TOWN

My Sons gave me the 2 pc. strap wrench set for fathers day over six years ago it sat in my tool box and never used it. This past weekend my son came over to change my oil in my truck. To my luck I couldn't find my oil wrench. I live 25 miles from the nearest store. Well my son ask me to find the strap wrench that him & his brother gave me for fathers day. Well it worked great to remove the oil filter in my truck if you ever changed a oil filter in a new cars or trucks there just no room to play with. I'll give the strap wrench all 5 stars, working great and not have to drive 50 miles round trip to buy a oil wrench. I Know now there is alot more uses for the strap wreach. Well its not at the bottom of my tool box any longer.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Cool product

I've had these for about 12 or 13 years now. Maybe the newer ones are not a durable as the ones I have, not sure, they look the same. I use them for removing oil filters, kind of a pain in tight spots but they work good. I have also used the larger one to remove clutch fans on V-6 and V-8 engines. Their not designed for that but most of the time they work for it. The one time it really impressed me, I did not have a special tool to hold the harmonic balancer on a foreign car so I tried the large strap wrench, it did the job of holding while the fastener was removed with an impact. I thought for sure it would break. Did gouge the handle up bad though.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
