Footprint Pipe Wrench With Thumbturn

( 7 Reviews )

We are currently unable to show all models available.

For over a century tradesmen around the world have been using the Footprint wrench as the tool that gets the job done and lasts a lifetime. If you’re unsure just look at the Footprint wrench reviews online or speak to any tradesman who has one, we’re confident you’ll like what you hear.

The Footprint wrench was designed in 1875 but is just as useful in todays’ modern world. Thousands are sold across the globe every year for use as a general plumbing and pipe work tool.

Many utility and construction companies require the original Footprint wrench (not cheap copies) in the toolkits for their employees due to the reputation as a quality tool to trust.

It has an old fashioned design but within the design and quality of manufacturing lies its’ secret. It will move pretty much anything that feels immovable.

An invaluable addition to any tool kit that will last a lifetime. With Footprint occasionally receiving a “footy” back to be refurbished as it is inherited from father to son!

The Footprint wrench consists of two core parts - one forged with a hook jaw at the end, and the other of pressed steel with carefully profiled teeth that locks onto the forged hook. This pattern wrench is adjusting nut (thumbturn). Many tradesmen appreciate this wrench as it can be adjusted using only one hand making.

The Footprint Wrench with a thumbturn knurled nut which provides easy adjustment with one hand. This style has a rounded end.

Review for Footprint Pipe Wrench With Thumbturn by Absolute Plumbing and Drainage
2nd October 2019

These are by far my oldest and longest serving tool. Use it most days and don’t know what I’d do without it! Easy to maintain and will keep going as long as you look after them

Love my old set of foot prints they are coming up to 20 years old now and still going strong. Made to last and never fail. Had an apprentice amazed at how they worked compared to his pump pliers.

Murdered many compression nuts with these as an apprentice also a must for low carbon steel pipework, the thumb adjust is brilliant

I bought the hilariously small pocket level, to use when fitting electrical backboxes and accessories. It’s been great for these uses, the magnet is very strong and it’s so small it’ll fit inside a standard UK single backbox. I paid about 6 quid for mine, and I flipping love it, even if it does get a few laughs on site.

Had a set of these for a couple of years and they’ve been great! Being stubby you don’t usually have much trouble drilling a nice straight hole when working up between joists or under floorboards. When they’re brand now the absolutely eat through timber. Quite expensive but reasonably hard wearing, they do say they are nail proof but I always try to avoid that as much as possible to prolong their life

These little hole saws are brilliant for drilling neat holes out in thin metals and plastic. I have been a long time user of starrett holesaws but when it comes to drilling out holes in trunking, boxes and panels I’ll 100% use on of these instead! Last a decent amount of time too so long as you look after them.

My favourite torque screwdriver set on the market right now, Wiha have done a great job in making the handle still feel ergonomic in the hand despite it being larger due to the fact it’s got the torque guts in it. Setting it is simple with the included tool, and I think it’s got the best torque range out of its competitors at 0.8nm to 5.0nm. Keep an eye out for deals on Amazon for this, it drops down to around £110 sometimes
