Just fab

"Bought this after struggling to tighten the nuts underneath our bath taps. This wrench made the job so much easier and finally got our taps to stop leaking. I now it's more expensive than the spanner you may already have but this really does do the job with so much better and without breaking your neck trying to twist under the bath or sink!!!"

Rothenberger tele basin wrench

"Robust quality tool at a realistic price, made an awkward job easy.
The sort of thing that you don't need too often but when you do, it's 'worth its weight'.

Great Tool
23-Feb-2014
By
, Sheffield
"This is an excellent tool for working in very tight places. I have just changed some bath taps and couldn't have completed the job without the telescopic basin wrench. Easy to use in difficult spots and the telescopic handle lets you adjust the handle length to avoid other pipework. May not use it many times but it was well worth the investment. A good piece of kit."

Just what I needed
01-Jan-2014
By
, Wakefield
"What a piece of kit this is! Got this when swapping over some bath taps having spent an hour scraping my knuckles, getting nowhere and been nagged about when the water would be back on. I hadn’t realised the significance of the spring loaded jaws when I bought it but in use it means once having got the jaws around the offending nut you don’t have to take it off after each turn, it just releases the pressure and then clamps back on again. I may only use it once but well worth the money for the time it saved."

Great Tap spanner
26-Sep-2013
By
, Cambs
"There are several different options on the market for tap spanners but my previous one wasn't always the right tool so i opted for this more expensive one. Initially I thought it was slightly pricey ( compared to some others ) but I have to say it was well worth the £15. Very 1st job that I used it on it just breezed it . . excellent grip on the tap nut, easy to turn handle . . . job done ! This spanner is good for baths and basins so I strongly recommend going for this tool. The telescopic adjustment is easy and extremely useful whilst the jaw itself is so much better shaped than my previous one. Early days yet but it appears to be very well manufactured. Very strong yet light to handle."

Basin wrench
07-Mar-2013
By
, NW London
"The nut that I was trying to undo was in the most inaccesable tight place. Tried all sorts of tools to loosen it and believe me, I have just about every tool on the planet apart from a basin wrench. Anyway, I bit the bullet, went to my local Screwfix in Harrow, bought this tool, it was still a very tight fit but after about 5 minutes of trying I got the tool on the nut turned the tommy bar with the tool in the fully extended position and got the bugger to loosen. Very pleased with this tool although I will probably only use it half a dozen times but it's a keeper !"

"I wanted to get an old bath out and change the taps, could not get my old plumb spanner to fit as not much room. Got this thinking it will not be very good but how wrong i was, very good and even used on tricky nuts to get at in my car engine bay."

Wouldn't buy any other make
10-Dec-2012
By
, Southampton
"These are just so handy. We have now purchased our second one, and we have owned the first one for near on 8 years.
Used on a regular basis, with a little bit of TLC in the shape of some oil every 6 months (purely if they get wet regularly), and it just lives on and on and on!
Great product, a tool that every plumber should own!

Worth the extra spend
06-Nov-2012
By
, Wilts
"If you are only ever going to change one tap in your life maybe a cheaper version will do for you. I was prepared to spend the extra for the telescopic action because of a very awkward bath tap refit and it handled it with ease. Solid construction with strong spring loaded jaws that didn't chew the brass fittings. Highly recommended."

Invaluable plumbing tool
26-Sep-2013
By
, Stourbridge
"Was invaluable in getting at 2 badly corroded bath tap fittings in a VERY tight space. Doubt if I could have done it any other way. The telescoping feature was most useful as piping was in the way and would have interfered with the t-bar handle if hadn't been able to extend it"

Wish I'd Bought It Years Ago
03-Aug-2012
By
, Nottingham
"So there I was, crawling under the basin trying to use an adjustable spanner to sort out the cold tap. Most unpleasant, and the tap was still loose. I thought there must be an easier way so I put down the spanner, got up and went to search Screwfix online.
Found this item, picked it up the same afternooon. This is a really good product. I'd never even seen one before and it took me a few minutes fiddling about to work out how best to use it. Soon worked it out .
The claw is self-tightening, it fits even in really confined spaces and the extendable handle really helps.
The wrench is strong and well-made from high quality materials.
In summary, a very good tool for sorting out basin and bath taps."

Great tool, but far too big!
26-Jun-2014
By
, Warwickshire
"It's a Rothernberger, so you'd imagine this would be the ultimate tap spanner. Well, it is well made and works ok for baths, but the first time you try and fit a sink you will realise that it's impossible to tighten the tap connectors using this spanner. If you can fit it over the nut at all, there is no chance of turning it - the head is simply massive!
Mine is now in a draw somewhere, and my weapon of choice is the classic Monument tap spanner. It fits everything no matter how tight, and despite not being sprung, it's still a lot easier to use due to the smaller size."
