Superior Tool Introduces New Universal Faucet Nut Wrench

Oct 23, 2012, 05:43 ET from Superior Tool Company

CLEVELAND, Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Superior Tool Company introduces the Universal Faucet Nut Wrench to its line of professional plumbing tools. The Faucet Nut Wrench has a unique configuration of slots that grabs all lockout nut wings without breaking them, and is especially useful in tight spaces.

The tool is a simple and less expensive alternative to the standard basin wrench and also large specialty products that are much more difficult to fit into many spaces. The slots on the Faucet Nut Wrench create a more positive fit with metal lock nuts, coupling nuts, PVC lockout nuts, most metal and plastic toilet supply nuts.

Weighing less than a quarter pound, this ingenious new tool has a cutaway design that fits around existing supply lines to remove the coupling nut. An adapter for use with a ¼ or 3/8 ratchet drive is included with the wrench. Once the coupling nut is removed, the cutaway fits around the faucet shank (1/2") to remove remaining metal and plastic nuts.

Merchandised for Profit

The suggested retail price will be $14.99. It comes in a blister pack 7" X 3.625" by 1.5", and is packed three to a carton. 

"We have also developed a space-efficient, 6-pack display unit," says Ted Bradley, Vice President of Marketing at Superior Tool.  "The backer card sells the benefits and has a QR code that can be scanned with a smart phone to view a one-minute video of the product in use. The benefits are made even more clear in the video." The video can be accessed via YouTube using keywords Superior Tool, Universal Faucet Nut Wrench.

Patented…Made in the USA…Lifetime Guarantee

"The product is made in the USA and we stand behind it solidly with a Lifetime Guarantee," says Bradley. "It is patented in both the U.S. and Canada. And, it's just the first of a number of innovative new tools that we will be introducing this Fall."
