First, the large size will not allow you to climb the key to remote places, and still have to use the normal wrench. Secondly, the backlash of the movable jaw does not allow to compress tightly the nut, with the result that with a relatively small force key will smooth the corners of nuts and fail. The mechanism of the movable jaw wears out, leading to the impossibility of a large backlash. But the rest – the perfect weapon and tool. You have to have.
Yes it is small, they are always lost in a negligent owner, you need to spend time to find the right. But otherwise – the best wrestler of nuts. It is devoid of the deficiencies that have him «swing» brother.
