InventHelp Invention Conveniently Starts the Tightening of Hydraulic Fittings (BSJ-397)

Share Article

InventHelp, founded in 1984 in Pittsburgh, is attempting to submit this idea, the Hydraulic Wrench, to applicable companies for their consideration.

An inventor from Carey, Idaho, needed a more effective way to tighten up some hoseline fittings before he could use a regular wrench to finish the job, so he ended up developing the idea for a special wrench: HYDRAULIC WRENCH.

"Modern equipment is requiring use of more and more fittings where they connect to hydraulic blocks, and where multiple fittings connect is hard to reach with conventional wrenches," said the inventor. "Bigger hoses are hard to bend to get them started, and the width of conventional wrenches sometimes allow only the jaws to fit partway in. While those wrenches provide limited degrees of movement, my light and comfortable wrenches helped me with my arthritis, and they benefit people in their last working years.”

This modified wrench allows for easy and convenient starting and snugging up of hydraulic fittings on light and heavy equipment. It prepares the fittings for tightening by regular wrenches and aids in difficult-to-access spaces. As a result, it saves time and effort. The inventor has created a prototype of his idea. Compact, lightweight, versatile, ergonomic and easy to use, the patent-pending HYDRAULIC WRENCH promotes efficiency and productivity. The tool is ideal for mechanics and DIYers.

The original design was submitted to the Boise office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
