EZ Spanner Ratcheting Hydrant Wrench 4 hole
The only multi-function ratcheting fire hydrant, fire hose and fittings wrench! Some fire hydrants have been in place for dozens of years, and many rarely get used. This leads to rusted valves that are extremely hard to open. There are many locations where hydrants are obstructed, buried into hillsides, covered by overgrown shrubs, or barricaded from high traffic areas. The EZ SPANNER™ allows you to access hydrants from a better position, and use the ratcheting feature to keep from putting yourself in compromising positions. Fire Hydrants are now easier to open because you don’t have to keep taking the wrench off the valve to reposition it.
Fire hydrants vary by manufacturer, but there are several standard sizes. Manufacturers give the option of sizes to each county individually. Therefore, it is possible to find many different sizes within neighboring counties, and also within some city limits. That’s why EZ SPANNER™ gives you the option to have your local standard sizes, and also be equipped with sizes that will fit neighboring communities where you provide mutual aid, or may be moved up to.
The EZ SPANNER™ was specifically designed to equip firefighters with a state-of-the-art firefighting tool. It has been too long that firefighters have been using ancient, outdated tools that aren’t performing at peak levels. The EZ SPANNER™ gives you an advantage right from the start. Its added length, width, and overall weight, along with the custom made hooks, give you the advantages needed to make firefighting easier and safer. The extension handle gives you the much needed leverage required to open all types of fire hydrants, while also giving you the peace of mind to know you won’t have to put yourself in compromising positions, or have to kick the wrench to get the valve to move.
The custom designed hooks were developed to gain a stronger, tighter grip on the couplings and fittings used most often. The hooks eliminate slipping off the lugs as you tighten down your fittings. The 3 sizes give you more options for different sized lugs, as opposed to a “one size fits all” type of hook, and gives you the option to access lugs from different angles, due to the 3 different positions of the hooks.
The EZ Spanner comes with either 2 or 4, standard or custom sized interchangeable socket gears. It has three common sized hooks and an extendable handle.
