great immersion box spanner
22 Jan 2016

" great box spanner , the length of it keeps it away from fouling on pipe work that might be in the way and the tommy bar gives good leverage for removal and refitting immersions "

Quality Tool
5 Oct 2015
By

" Although this is slightly more expensive than the flat ring spanner I would thoroughly recommend this. It feels like it will last a few generations. It undid my old immersion heater with ease. I managed to thread the mains lead through the socket and still undo it so no need to remove the cabling first - once unplugged!
This is twice the price for 10 times the quality.

Good Tool
14 Mar 2015

" Seems very strong, handled the Emersion heater on a old style Megaflo without much bother, but had to use a strong pipe in conjunction with the Tommy bar to get a bit more torque.
Turned out to be an easy job, buying the tool is a small price to pay compared to calling out a plumber. "

" Spanner fitted perfectly after a few burrs were lightly filed off.
Much stronger than a pressed steel cranked spanner, it removed the old heater and replaced the new one on a foam insulated cylinder with no trouble at all.
Well recommended. "

pretty good tool
20 May 2016

" Fitted well - I have tried the flat spanners before and they do not work and you have to cut away a lot of the tank insulation. The tommy bar is not really long enough - we are in a hard water area and the old heater had been there 20+ years. But using a long pair of heavy-duty grips to hold the box spanner got it moving. I read that it is best to leave the water in the tank while trying to get the first movement on the spanner - water adds to structural strength of tank and reduces risk of damaging it - of course drain before taking it right out!

" Very good bit of kit, bought this to try & remove my old immersion heater, unfortunately the heater was well & truly stuck to the point on bending the “tommy bar”. However this is a great tool at a reasonable price and will not damage the cylinder lagging, unlike the spanner type. "

" After struggling for an hour with a flat one, I decided to take a gamble with this one.
I was not disappointed. Within thirty seconds, the old element was out.
One slight drawback; there is a very small amount of play which could potentially cause a few burrs if you over tighten "
