Crescent Locking Adjustable Wrench

Since the locking mechanism on vice grips is just about the best feature of any handheld tool, Crescent decided to slap it on a wrench. If you’ve ever used a wrench before, you know how annoying adjusting the wrench to the size you want can be, and that it stays tight for the first turn and a half only. The addition of the locking handle, and fourteen different locking positions, lets you efficiently clamp down on nuts and bolts of just about any size with two times the gripping power of a standard wrench. Not to mention it just looks cool. Or, for a few bucks less, there’s also this bare steel alloy Stanley model ($16).
