Utility equipment: Conduit Locknut Wrench

Utility equipment: Klein Tools introduces the Conduit Locknut Wrench, an innovative tool designed to easily loosen and tighten conduit connectors in tight or deep cut-in boxes.

Perfect for remodel work where the cut-in boxes are filled with existing wires, the Conduit Locknut Wrench (Cat. No. 56999) features two wrench heads for 1/2 in. and 3/4 in. conduit connectors. Using a patented drive shaft, the wrench heads rotate each other when twisted. This eliminates the need for side to side tool movement. Each wrench head also features a hole for a screwdriver as a lever to enable more torque on extra tight connectors.

Conduit Locknut Wrench features include:
• Easily attach locknuts in tight or deep cut-in boxes.
• For 1/2 in. and 3/4 in. connectors.
• Heavy duty steel construction enables needed torque for extra tight connections.

“Typical methods for tightening or loosening conduit connectors, like a hammer and screwdriver, a pair of pliers or your fingers, rarely work well because of the limited range of motion inside a tight or deep cut-in box,” says David Mueller, senior product manager at Klein Tools. “The conduit locknut wrench gets into tight spaces that your hands or other tools won¹t.”

Since 1857 Klein Tools, a family-owned and operated company, has been designing, developing and manufacturing premium-quality, professional-grade hand tools. The majority of Klein tools are manufactured in plants throughout the United States and are the number one choice among professional electricians and other tradespeople.
