The $10 in points makes this a really good deal. I've seen at least one popular review saying this is a useless tool [youtu.be], but in the video, he's actually using it incorrectly, so I'd take that with a grain of salt. I have this tool from a past deal without the points back, and have used it a couple times, and I think it's pretty handy to have and seems relatively well-made (for a made-in-China-Craftsman anyway).

This is an interesting wrench. It helped me remove the trailer ball from a receiver. The ball had been on the receiver for quite a while, and would turn when I turned the bolt. This allowed me to hold the ball in place, while I used another wrench to remove the bolt.

I've had a similar situation, & used an old pipe wrench to hold the ball.
edit: Just like in the picture, on the Sears site, but I used a ½" ratchet & socket, on the bottom. You really should use a socket, or wrench when you are trying to turn a bolt/hex nut, if you can. And for a water hose, I used Channel locks

I've got an older version of this. It's a tool. Probably not one you're gonna need, but you're gonna buy it anyway... Just like I did.

Yes, yes, it is. Like many other "specialty tools" Sears has come up with the last several years. I have a set of those open end gimmicky ratchet wrenches. I have used them for the boxed end, many times. The open end thing is a joke. It may be handy for a very few things, but not many. At least I did get them for ½ price. Which was too much.

Sorry but this is not a gimmick. This tool works in situations nothing else has. Been using it for 2 years now and has held up great. Many tools are gimmicky, this isn't one of them. Truly usefully! Just realize it's a last resort tool and will damage surfaces.

Ha, I've heard that once before, and it was quite a revelation as I had never considered it before. It's the former.

I have an older version of one of these. Has been a life-saver on several occasions with stuck bolts and such that no other tool could grab.
