Valve Wheel Wrenches
- Protect valve wheels from damage and burrs by choosing an appropriate hook.
- VWALP1 and VWALP2 are made of low sparking aluminum.
- REED designs are safer for heavy use—bending gives warning of overload.

REED Valve Wheel Wrenches grip the rims of hand valve wheels securely and provide leverage for opening and closing. Valve wheel wrenches are the solution for handling hard-to-open valves. Choose a wrench based on the hook opening. The hooks work without gouging the wheel rim. OSHA inspectors can assess penalties for using a pipe wrench on a valve wheel rim as wrench teeth can leave sharp burrs on the wheel rim, which result in hand injuries. VWALP1 and VWALP2 valve wheel wrenches offer a low-sparking benefit due to aluminum-magnesium alloy construction. Construction of the wrench also permits it to bend before it breaks, thus warning users of excess loads.
