In January 2008, Channellock launches another addition to its Code Blue® product line — the WideAzz™ 6” adjustable wrench (6WCB). The 6WCB will join its big brother, the 8WCB, as the flagship adjustable wrenches of the line. The WideAzz™ adjustable wrenches are some of the most durable on the planet. And with the name Channellock® laser-etched on the side, reliable performance can be expected with every use. “Our customers told us that they value the increased jaw-capacity, comfort and durability of the original 8” WideAzz™,” said Scott Jonap, vice president of sales and marketing for Channellock. “The 6” WideAzz™ offers those same qualities in a more compact, easy-to-carry adjustable wrench – it’s an exceptionally versatile tool for handling big jobs in tight spaces.” The WideAzz™ outperforms a standard 6” adjustable wrench in the following areas: • Tapered jaw profile and shorter handle length for greater access in tight spaces. • Wider jaw span supports larger nuts, bolts, pipes, etc. • Longer individual jaws grip better, avoiding slippage or round-off • Lighter in weight than traditional adjustable wrenches • Made with chrome vanadium steel for strength and corrosion resistance • Adjusts smoothly using a precision engineered 4-thread adjustment knurl • Code Blue® grips deliver increased comfort and durability • Length (in): 6..25 • Length (mm): 158.75 • Capacity(in): 1.34 • Capacity(mm): 34 • Weight(lbs): .29 • Weight(g): 131.54 • Head Width(in): 1.97 • Head Width(mm): 50.04 • Head Thickness(in): .41 • Head Thickness(mm): 10.41
