Tight Arc Swing

Wrench provides mechanics with power and precision in tight spaces.


The SK X-Frame ratcheting wrench provides mechanics with more power and precision in tight spaces than anything else on the market, according to Joe Saganowich, general manager of SK Professional Tools.

“Professional mechanics told us they needed more power and precision in very tight, hard-to-get-at spaces,” said Saganowich. “We’ve listened to their feedback and reinvented the ratcheting mechanism itself by using six dual opposing pawls (instead of one) on a reengineered, 72-tooth wheel. This allows for more strength and precision in any of the 216 positions our wrench offers.”

In fact, the new ratcheting mechanism is so strong, according to SK Professional Tools, that SK reengineered the geometry of the handle to allow the technician to deliver maximum torque. The SK X-Frame will help professional technicians handle tough jobs with speed and confidence.


The distinctive x-frame look of the SK X comes from opposing triangular structures that help make the wrench stronger by dispersing the stress on the handle across two beams. The SK X-Frame will be available this spring in a full range of sizes.

“We believe the SK X is going to appeal to the pro’s pro among auto technicians,” said Saganowich. “These are the guys who out-think the problems they face, the guys who love high-performance machines and high-performance tools.”

According to SK design engineers, the “best-in-class” handle enables the superior ratchet mechanism to deliver smooth, efficient power – even in the tightest, hardest-to-reach spaces of any technician’s job. The ratcheting mechanism’s 72 teeth and six dual opposing pawls enable the user to turn nuts in 2.1 degrees (with the 3⁄4-inch SK X model). This increased control allows auto techs to work in tighter spaces.


SK’s polished chrome tools are made in America by Ideal Industries, a global, family-owned company headquartered in Sycamore, Ill. Ideal purchased SK Professional Tools in 2010.
