Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarilynB Perfect size wrench for small hands!
I am very pleased with this Crescent adjustable wrench. This 6" wrench is just the right size for me and is so comfortable in the hand with the rubbery grip. Adjusting the knurl is easy with my thumb and does not slip.
This is a well-made wrench and I like that it has a measurement guide for desired fastener size (up to 15/16" inch on one side, and 24mm on the other). I appreciate that the jaw stays tight and I don't have to keep tightening it as I do in my old wrench. It also has a hole on the handle for hanging it on a hook.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WarrenJim Excellent little wrench!
It seemed like when I needed a wrench in the basement I'd left it in the garage - and when I needed it in the garage I'd left it in the basement. When the opportunity arose to acquire a 6" Crescent wrench I jumped at it.
The wrench is a typical Crescent wrench, adjustable via a knurled knob from the closed position to a maximum of 15/16".
The fit and finish are fine - no mars, marks, scratches, or sharp edges. This wrench (item AC26CVS) is fitted with a rubbery sleeve on the wrench handle. This sleeve makes the wrench much more comfortable (especially in outdoor winter temperatures!) than a wrench not equipped with the hand protecting sleeve. The sleeve does not seem to impair grip, even when my hands were a bit oily. (See attached photo).
The wrench has width increments which allow you to 'dial in' the size needed before using the wrench. Saves a little time from the old days when some wrenches weren't marked and you had to approximate the jaw opening, try it, and adjust again until you got it right. Not a terrible task if you could get to the knurled knob with the jaws around the work, but if you had to pull the wrench away, adjust, place it back on the work, pull it away to adjust - that got old pretty quickly. With the markings on this Crescent wrench you can get a close approximation before placing the wrench on the work. Neat!
This 6" Crescent wrench is made off-shore (in China) but the quality seems to be right up there with older Crescent wrenches I have and the wrench is guaranteed "Forever".
A very handy little wrench to have on hand!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hootbro Decent value and quality for a home user
Out of the package, these pliers seem to be of decent value and quality. Chrome finish appears to be good and jaw adjustment is easy with the thumb using one hand. Jaws do have a little slop to them though and are not as good when they previously were made in the USA and now China.
In use, these pliers seem to hold up to moderate use but if using for a high torque application, then upgrading to a fixed wrench or socket will be needed to avoid break these pliers.
For home use, these should do fine. For tradesman use, I would invest in a little better quality adjustable that holds to a tighter tolerance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mikey95 Compact plumbing tool
This adjustable wrench has greater jaw capacity and thinner jaws than most 6 inch wrenches. This combination makes for a good all purpose adjustable wrench but it is particularly good for plumbing applications where torque requirements are low and space is tight. I have big hands, but the handle fits well in my hand, it does not extend past my heel. No doubt that some day I won't be able to get enough force on a rusty nut with this wrench, but in the meantime it will save me time by working in a smaller space.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbo Great adjustable wrench and lifetime warranty too!
I love the style and wider grip of this adjustable Crescent wrench. Fits perfectly in my hand. This 6 inch Chrome tool has a cushion handle which makes it quite comfortable while using. I love the red colored cushion material. It stands out on a tool board and has a hole at end of handle to hang on a pegboard, or just lay in your tool box. And the tool is of course adjustable up to 15/16". And Crescent Brand tools come with a guarantee forever. Not to many companies do that these days. I am very delighted with this adjustable wrench and plan to get the other sizes as a great addition to my tool chest. Thank you Crescent for a fantastic tool. A perfect addition to any persons tool chest.And thanks to Home Depot for providing the public with quality tools you can count on.

It's hard to find a wrench that is tight in the head. This one no matter what you adjust it to its solid. The handle is also nice.

Probably the best crescent you can buy. Yes kind of spendy at $16 but well worth it. Great hand protection pad and locks nicely when set, doesnt lossen. Great for a HVAC guy like me!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYJane Definitely helpful in tight places
I bought it to help install a faucet in a bathroom vanity that was very small so all the spaces were very tight to work in. My larger wrenches were just too long to be useful. This one not only fit the space but has a nice cushioned grip.
