Crowfoot spanners are used for installing and dismantling polygonal parts with limited access. These tools have an open end like one of the open-end spanners. Their special feature is the position of the working element: it is perpendicular to the handle. The handle, in turn, has a hole for a tommy bar in it. The worker applies force to the tommy bar thus creating the torque.
Crowfoot spanners: 7 important facts
- They are mainly produced from highly durable metals. For example, it can be chromium vanadium steel. Often, they have a chromium coating for corrosion protection.
- Crowfoot spanners differ from each other by the size of the working part, length, weight. They can be supplied together with a tommy bar or without it.
- Before you start working, we recommend putting on fabric gloves, to protect the skin on your hands from scratches, and examining the device for damage. If there are any chips, cracks or other defects, do not use the tool.
- You shouldn’t use a spanner with the size of an opening not matching the diameter of the fastener. If you do, you may damage both the car part and the tool.
- You should mount and dismount fasteners using only clean devices. Because of the dirt on its surface, the tool may slip off and cause injuries.
- These tools, as a rule, do not require any special treatment with chemical agents. After using it, just wipe it with a soft dry cloth.
- It is important to prevent any contacts with water when the device is being stored. Toolboxes provide good protection from the negative impact of the environment.
