Rated 5 out of 5Â by BilltheToolGuy Rapid Slide Adjustable
This has got to be one of the greatest wrenchs to come along in years. The slde button allows one hand adjustments to the size you need.
Quality seems to be great with the slide operation moving flawless. This would be a great gift for the do it youselfer that has everything!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by thejackofeverytrade Fast UN-adjustment!
If you've got more than one nut or bolt of the same size to turn and/or don't have clearance around a fastener to complete a 360 rotation, steer clear of this one.
The slide feature, though an interesting departure from the norm, is the downfall of this wrench. I used it for about a week, each time throwing it down in frustration and grabbing a standard crescent.
Every time one inserts/removes it from a fastener, it un-adjusts slightly due to the slack in the twin worm-drive mechanism; it must be re-adjusted multiple times per fastener. To make matters worse, the slide knob protrudes far enough away from the body that if you're working in a confined space, it's dang near impossible not to bump it on something and loose your adjustment. Lastly, that aforementioned slack is a whopping eighth of an inch at the jaws!
About the only thing this wrench excelled at was rounding fastener heads... Neat idea, horrible real-world application. For the company that invented the adjustable wrench, Crescent certainly dropped the ball on this model. The rest of my adjustable wrenches are Channel Lock brand. In my opinion, they are superior build quality at similar prices to the originator. This genuine Crescent was the first last to grace my toolbox.

This is what my son asked me to get him for Christmas. Home Depot had the best price, delivered it faster than I expected. It arrived in perfect condition and my son will be so pleased Christmas morning.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by boardshortener Just a low quality overpriced gimmick
Too heavy to carry around at work and too frustrating to use. The adjustment is rough and will not get any smoother. It does not hold an adjustment at all. Needs to be re adjusted every time it is put on a bolt or not.
And don't drop it in dirt, sand or dust. It will jam for sure.
