Utility tools: Quad Square linemen's wrench makes work easier, safer

safety products Lowell

Utility safety: The new 8D-QS Quad Square Lineman’s Wrench from Lowell Corporation packs a number of features to make work easier and safer for high line workers. Weighing only 1-3/8 lb. and only 13" long, the Quad Square is easy to carry up a pole on a tool-belt and is well balanced for easy and safe prolonged use. Its 200 lb-ft of torque delivers serious turning power. Low profile steel sockets with 36 teeth yield a 10 degree handle throw, making the tool ideal for working faster and safer in tight spots. The investment cast steel sockets promise excellent strength and accuracy and a new ratchet engagement design provides smooth operation and quick reversing.

There are four square sizes in the two-sided socket: 1-1/8" for 3/4" hardware, 1" for 5/8" nuts, 13/16" opening for 1/2" hardware, and a 3/4" size to handle 1/2" lag bolts.

The 8D Quad Square has a 13" ergonomic handle with a full length grip which lets a worker grab the wrench at any point on the handle. High-Vis sockets and grips make it easy to find the tool on a worksite or in a toolbox. The wrench also features Lowell's Bolt-Thru design that lets workers engage nuts on long bolts or all-thread rod.

Although the 8D-QS is designed for years of trouble-free operation, Lowell recommends that the tool be cleaned and lubed after each use to ensure long life and optimal performance. There is a conditional one-year warranty.
