Whether you're a mechanic or using at home, you're sure to find the right spanner for the job!

Types of Spanners

Any tool that can be used to tighten a nut or bolt to a specific torque is known as a spanner. There are different types of hand spanners and each heave their own advantages and disadvantages. Available individually or as sets.

Combination Spanners

This is a simple spanner made up of a shaft and two spanner heads: one ring head and one open-ended head. The head of combination spanners are usually at a 15 degree angle to the shaft to allow better access to the nuts or bolts.

Hook Spanners

Hook spanners have one or several ''hooks'' or pins that are designed to drive spanner-head screws, retainer rings, threaded collars etc. Also known as C spanners.

Ratchet Spanners

These spanners use a ratchet system allowing the fastener to be turned in one direction but not the other.

Open Ended Spanners

Open-ended hand spanners have U-shaped jaws with two flat sides which grip opposite sides of a fastener in order to loosen or tighten it. These tools have an open jaw at each end and differ in size.

Ring Spanners

A simple spanner with a profile that is enclosed in a ring. Heads of a ring spanner are usually offset from the handle so it is easier to reach the fastener. Double ended ring spanners often have offset handles to improve access to nuts and bolts.
