Insulated Box Wrench Performance & Features:

Twice the Metal-to-Metal Electrical Isolation

  • The insulated box wrench handle is formulated of a high strength and high dielectric polymer.
  • A see-through port in the center of the handle to confirm that the two ends are not electrically connected.
  • The unique design of the handle provides twice the Metal-to-Metal Electrical Isolation compared to other brands (*based on tests on model BW-223).
  • The handle comes in a High-Visibility yellow color.

1000 V

The insulating BugWrench handle is formulated of a high strength and high dielectric polymer.

1000 Volt Isolation

1000 Volt Isolation

The handle is designed with a visual and physical indicator permanently molded (in a shape of a rib) in 2 positions on the handle. This rib provides an indication of the “Isolated Area” of the handle. Holding the wrench behind the appropriate rib, in the “Isolated Area” provides a 1,000 Volt Rating between the metal working end and the operator’s hand. Independent electrical tests were performed on a BW-223 wrench verifying that the electrical performance of the BugWrench handle far exceeds the standard published “Leakage Current” (at various voltages) and “Dielectric Strength” requirements.

See-Through Hole in the Handle

A see-through port in the center of the handle to confirm that the two ends are not electrically connected.

Yet with the patented handle design and the metal-to-metal separation, the wrench has a Pull-Apart Strength of 3-5 times greater than other brands.

Hevy-Duty Drop-Forge Head

The models BW-223HD and BW-203HD have heavy-duty forged heads. To reverse the ratchet action just flip the the tool.

Forged head models have 12 point sockets for a precise & smaller travel for ease of movement in tight spaces. They also incorporate a higher resolution ratchet for smoother operation.
