Wingnut Spanner

Celebrating over 10 years of Worldwide Spanner Supply

Sometimes wingnuts and associated clamps just need to be a little bit tighter, shackle pins need to come undone without resorting to bashing it on the nearest solid item and there is never a bottle opener to hand in catering. With this in mind we worked with the people manufacturing clamps to come up with this tried and tested tool.

Founded in 2003 the design was finalised and has remained the same throughout, its form most definately follows its function and we are proud to see the worldwide acceptance and popularity remains.

The slim profile ensures it sits well in your pocked with steel thick enough that we have yet to see one break or deform given normal tasks, although we have certainly seen them used for abnormal tasks too.

Please ensure you are using the correct clamp or fitting for the task in hand and remember that very tight doesn't make it very safe! The primary task the spanner was designed for came about through the daily outrigging of Source 4 profiles and molefays / blinders from touring trusses. Using half couplers ensures that the trusses are not damaged but they needed a touch more torque to stop the focus from slipping mid show.

With the addition of M10 and M12 cutouts the fixture can also be tightened down to stop further wayward movement. Secondly the spanner has a narrow slot to enable the easy movement of cam clamps as found most moving lights flying hardware. Although simple enough in principle these are all too commonly overly tight and consequently people will use the nearest available source to give it the all important quarter turn - hence jagged edges and bent metalwork making for costly repairs and injured technicians
