Review for Monument Adjustable Basin Grip + Wrenches by Greenwich Plumbing Company
12th October 2021

Just bought a new one of these as the teeth on my old one had lost their bite , they lasted 20 years or more though. The new ones are great and really grip the back nuts on taps and the nuts on tap connectors. Ive tried all the other types, spring loaded, telescopic etc but these are still the best in my opinion

I’ve got the tapex kit and it’s brilliant. But this still lives in the bag and gets good use.
Takes a bit of getting used to but very valuable tool.

Would love it if the bar were a little better at staying in place. Fell out behind a unit never to be retrieved.

This is a great idea in principle and some jobs I wouldn’t have been able to do without it but I found it broke easily, I’m now on my 3rd one but have been replaced for free every time

I have this for getting up under my sink in the kitchen which is a very tight space makes the job alot easier awkward at first but once you get it on you can soon tighten or loosen the fitting

Just throw away your basin spanner’s. This tool does the job. I’ve been using them for years. When you first use it, it can be tricky. But once you get the knack, you won’t look back. It comes with two size heads for gripping nuts etc. And because it’s slim, it fits into very tight and awkward spaces. But what I like more about it is that you can use this on boilers! Where it is difficult to get in between components. So it’s not just for basins etc. It’s a handy piece of kit that will aid you in tightening or un tightening any hard to get to nuts on basins or boilers. Always have one in my kit.

This and a box type tap spanner are the only ones you will need In your van. This spanner is awesome but will drive you crazy at times. It gets into tight spots. It does however sometimes slip as it has a joint just below the claw at the top and the claw just won’t seem to grip when your in the tightest spots with one hand trying to hold back your wish to just smash the old tap out and leave.
All in it’s the best tap spanner if it’s sort.

Ive tried many different tap spanners over the years but this really stands out, the thin jaws make getting in to tighten/loosten tap nuts that are tight to basins a dream, build quality is excellent and you have no concearns about the main shaft bending under torque like i have had with lesser basin spanners.

This is the industry standard, in fact you can tell a lot about a plumber by his tap wrench, if they have this then you know they know what their doing, any other wrench may cast doubt. I honestly think it’s an great tool.

Ive used a lot of different basin wrenchs and found the the grip on the nuts was never as good as id like it to be, these teeth on these actually grab the nut really well, the fact I can attach a wratchet spanner onto the end of these to get a really good seperates this from everything else and blows all the others out of the water...absolutely love these!

The only basin wrench to own in my opinion. Solid, well engineered and invaluable on odd sized nuts on baths, basins and boilers. My only gripe is the nut to secure the other claw isn't the best design, I've lost a claw this way, but you can buy them separately, so it was replaced

For me, this is the market defining basin wrench. I wouldn't be without mine. The ends are easily lost and it's annoying to have to buy the bigger claw separately but good solid tool.

Better than most others, I lost one of the heads on mine but the one that is left works on all nut sizes anyway.

Very simple and easy to use. A few accessories are available to use with this, making it very useful.
Only thing I would change is to somehow fix the jaw on so it can't fall off.

I just can't work it in the right spaces I need it... I find this tool infuriating! I always have it in the box and I always smash my knuckles when I resort to using it. I'm sure it's my technique or maybe my fat stupid hands but I don't get along with it.

I have had this for many years now, about 5 & have been able to adapt it to many uses to enable me to give my customers a better gauge, ha, of what water pressure they have in their house.
This is a crucial bit of kit when sizing & advising customers on their required boiler for example.

Right then guys, Tool Talk. I just wanted to show this Monument Basin Wrench. Had it for years, didn't realise all the benefits of it. So you got this, which is part of the Grip+ Range. I just used to use one of them Allen keys before. Makes light work of it really. So, the thing I don't like about it is, is these little black caps, tend to lose them. As you can see, it makes it pretty easy. I know you can get ratcheting ones, but to be honest, this does the job. Simple but effective tool. I really like it and there's loads of other bits that go onto that Monument Basin Wrench. I'll dig some out and make some more videos on it. Cheers guys.

New review by Fitzgerald Electrical & Plumbing Solutions

Got a basic multi bender when I started out nothing special as I was just starting out and thought all pipe bending tools were the same? Any way been sent this monument bender to try out and review. On opening up first impression looks good and As you would expect from monument tools the build quality is second to none and compared to my basic pipe bender it looks a lot better and feels better when using it, it is a lot more robust and the shape seems to make it feel easier to use. A lot of people are put off bending pipes my mate especially he would rather solder more fittings than bend a pipe but using a good quality bender really does make all the difference and the monument multi bender is a top tool

Good pressure gauge. Solidly built and robust enough to withstand the back of the van shelf. Easily adaptable to connect however you need it. Have mine hooked up to a push fit isolator for ease of testing.
