OAKLAND, Calif. – June 21, 2018 – Feeney, Inc., a leading manufacturer of high quality stainless steel and aluminum railing systems, has introduced the Quick-Connect® Wrench Wheel, a compact, lightweight tool designed to make it easier for builders, contractors and installers to tension Feeney’s Quick-Connect® Tensioner fittings.
Manufactured from lightweight and durable 6061 aluminum alloy for long-lasting performance, the Quick-Connect® Wrench Wheel allows for continuous full rotation without requiring repositioning of wrenches – making it a faster and easier alternative to the two-wrench tensioning method. The tool utilizes a specially designed spring ball retainer that securely grips onto the wrench flats of the Quick-Connect® Tensioner fittings for ease of maneuvering.
“We are always looking for ways to simplify the installation of our products and save installers time on the jobsite,” said Andy Penny, vice president of marketing and advertising, Feeney, Inc. “As our tagline states, ‘Feeney makes it easy’, and our new Wrench Wheel is just another example of how we are delivering on that brand promise.”
To use the tool, the user simply slides the Wrench Wheel onto the wrench flats of a Quick-Connect® Tensioner fitting and then rotates the Wrench Wheel by hand to adjust cable tension, while holding the opposite end of the fitting in a fixed position with an open-end wrench.
Currently available for use on 1/8-inch diameter Quick-Connect® Tensioner fittings, the Quick-Connect® Wrench Wheel is available now through Feeney authorized dealers.
