Scaffolding Ratchet

June 26, 2012

When the job calls for erecting scaffolding to work at an elevated level, the new Williams® Scaffolding Ratchet from Snap-on Industrial Brands can be a true time saver. The Scaffolding Ratchet is three tools in one - tools that erectors need to easily and quickly engage the posts, fasteners and clamps on scaffolding. Since most scaffolding uses 7/8" hex nuts, the ratchet comes with a 1/2" drive pinned 7/8" six-point socket. Opposite of the socket is a bronze hammer head, which comes in handy to pound out quick-release levers. Lastly, a pry bar is located at the other end of the ratchet to aid in scaffolding disassembly. 

 Other features and benefits of the scaffolding ratchet include:   

  • 36-tooth gear with 10-degree of engagement for working in tight areas 
  • Supertorque lobular opening for greater turning power without deforming the fastener 
  • Easy access reversing level to change working direction with only one hand 
  • Bronze hammer head to reduce rebound 
  • Tethering device to prevent dropped tools 
  • three tools in one
  • 1/2" drive pinned 7/8" six-point socket
