Open End Balustrade Spanner
A SuperTuff Open End Balustrade Spanner makes tightening the locking nuts on both open and closed turnbuckles complete child’s play – and it has a beautiful finish!
This awesome little is small, – but its NOT a toy. It is industry fabrication quality and IMHO – one of the best hand tools around for dealing with the TINY nuts on balustrade fittings. Its design ensures the safety of your fittings.
This tool has two open ends (5.5mm and 7.0mm) to fit the various nuts on M5 and M6 Closed/open Turnbuckles as well as the Terminal Lag Swage Screws (6mm) and the Terminal Swage Bolts (M6) that we have
listed in our store. The fit is NOT exact – but its simple and it works and it gives you more than enough leverage.
Simply put the tool in place – with the tool at a slight angle ( its small enough to clear the adjacent wires) and tighten that nut!
Its recommended that you use these in pairs (1 in each hand to tighten a rigging screw or 1 for you and 1 for your buddy to install RHT and LHT paired fittings such as Swaged Lag Screws or Swaged Terminal Bolts.) and in combination with a C – Spanner available here.
