Wright recently released a new 3-in-1 scaffold ratchet (#4488) that features a built-in 1/2″ square drive, 7/8″ open-end wrench, and an interchangeable plastic soft-faced non-sparking hammer. Designed to be lightweight and compact, the WrightGrip SB ratchet is safe and easy to use at scaffold-building heights.
With an open-head ratchet design, the WrightGrip SB is extremely compact and easy to clean. A lanyard ring also allows for easy tool attachment.
Optional accessories include a deep socket for final tightening on smaller scaffold diameters, and interchangeable brass and steel hamer inserts.
I wonder if Wright intends to introduce a similar open-ratchet mechanism on future compact close quarter ratchets. Something like that might be real nice in a 1/4″ drive size!
As expected, Wright’s new scaffold ratchet is made in the USA.
