Compact, Foldable Ken-Tool Multi-Lug Wrench

stow ad4d0Ken-Tool's new Stow & Go heavy-duty lug wrench (No. 35636) offers a fold-away design that allows the wrench to be compactly stowed when not in use. The moveable arms easily swing and lock into the 90-degree position, plus the arms can be slid within the locking hub to create greater leverage when removing and tightening a lug nut. The Stow & Go features three fixed (17mm, 19mm and 21mm) lug-nut sockets, plus a 1/2" square-drive adapter to use other sockets. It also doubles as a heavy-duty, high-torque wrench for removal of other bolts or nuts.

Don't Miss It!
As towers continue to diversify, the line between emergency tow operations and general trucking becomes very blurry. Join American Towman's Contributing Editor Brian J. Riker for his seminar, "Motor Carrier Compliance and the Tow Company Fleet." Riker will explain some of the key differences between operating a traditional towing company and a full-service trucking company. This seminar will take place during Tow Industry Week at its new location, the Westgate Paradise & Pavilion in Las Vegas, Nevada, May 14-15, 2020.
