X-Beam Wrench


This X-Beam wrench is a front runner (in my books) for product of the year.  It has already won a Popular Science Best of What's New Award, an ID Magazine Design Award, and an IDSA IDEA Award.  And all with good reason.  It's a simple adjustment to traditional wrenches with a huge effect on the ergonomics and usability.  Designed by Richard Macor of Proprietary Technologies, Inc., this product is effectively a 'wrench with a twist'.  By adding a 90 degree twist to the center of the wrench they have created a much more solid area on which to grip the wrench, providing more torque and less strain on the wrist. Definitely file this one respectfully under 'DUH'.  Available for purchase at GearWrench.com
