(What's this)
This is a great addition to my tools. The chain and chain links are large and strong. The handle is long and about 1 and 1/8 inch wide at the bottom. The handle is 12 inches long for good leverage and it would be easy to slip a length of 1 1/2 pipe over the handle for even greater leverage. The chain is 16 inches long. which roughly translates to a 5 inch diameter. So I can put a pipe, or a piece of wood or anything that is 5 inches or less in diameter in this chain wrench. There are sharp, deep teeth on the end of the handle which gives it it's gripping strength, Given enough room this will grip it all, odd shapes and round shapes. It looks and feels solid and built to last..

This 12 inch chain wrench is manufactured by Crescent, a well known maker of tools. It is made of steel and is a medium size, for pipes up to 3 inch. It works great, extra sharp teeth to grip the pipe surface. It can be used to tighten or loose pipe connections. The chain is steel also, I would recommend a light coat of thin oil be applies as needed to prevent rusting and to keep the chain flexible. It can be hung on the wall in your shop, or laid in your tool box for storage.

This is a real heavy duty chain wrench, a great replacement for the old one I had lost. This comes with a much heavier chain and locking hooks than my old one had. This wrench is so handy for those situations where a typical wrench just won't work. I use it mostly on those hard to hold things or where the pipe wrench is just not big enough. Finish is easy to clean and will be added back in the tool box. Highly recommend this tool.

(What's this)
This is no flimsy hard plastic wrench, this is built to mean business! I know most people would want something like this to work on pipes or oil filters, but my needs were a bit different. For those of you out there that own a pool, you know tightening and untightening water pump/filter connections is part of the fun of owning a pool. My old hands now have trouble grabbing those connections and getting a tight enough grip to get them to where I want them. With this wrench not only can I get a good grip on them, but now I have another 12 inches of leverage too. With the open end chain feature, I am able to tighten any of the connections. Just be careful not to over tighten them!

I thought by buying a good old American brand wrench like Crescent I would get a made in USA tool but I was wrong it’s made in China! Hope it holds up.

(What's this)
This chain wrench is a replacement for one I used to have that "grew legs." Possibly borrowed by someone and not returned. Though not as nice as the one I lost, it seems well made and should be quite functional. I would have preferred a "Made in USA" tool but it is what it is. No where on the tool does it state where it was made, but the package said, "Made in China." I tried it on a piece of pipe and it grabbed while turning in each direction as it is supposed to do. It will also work on on shaped pieces. All in all, a good tool.

I had a chance to pick up a Crescent 12-inch Chain Wrench. This is a great tool to have when you need it. I plan to use the Chain Wrench to remove inspection ports on my septic system. The PVC cap and cap fitting were never glued in place anticipating shortening the stand pipe at a later date. With the Chain Wrench, I can grip and twist the fitting and remove it. The wrench is great at grabbing any smooth circular object like a sheave or pipe/fitting up to ~4 inches in diameter. The Crescent Chain Wrench has teeth that will bite into the surface to loosen or tighten the object be rotated. The chain teeth can be sharpened if they become dull so be aware of marring a polished surface now or in the future.
