Inevitably, some smartass is going to come along and point out that Harbor Freight has a 2-pack of strap wrenches for $5. I'm here to preemptively let you know that the Harbor Freight ones smell like stinky foul rotting fish (not even kidding) and the rubber that they are made from degrades into goo over the course of several months. I've had Craftsman ones for about 5 years and they continue working fine.

For $8 and change, what the heck. It's one of those tools that will come in very handy - especially when you don't have a tool that works!

Repped and thanks, OP - good find!

Might have to get them. They might be good for working on the Swimming Pool pumps, might be better than the big, heavy, pipe wrenches I've been using. Then maybe keep the small one in the kitchen for removing tight jar lids.

Got'em last time they were this low. They do a great job on big diesel water and oil filters with nary a scratch. I bet you'll love'm.

Yeah - I stopped buying that crap when I had to run back and forth to the store 6 times to warranty it. The warranty makes no difference when you need to keep replacing over and over, it just gets annoying.

They work GREAT for pool pumps and piping! I'm getting a stand by pair just for that as they can get torn and ripped with over or rough surface use.

These are great to have if u need to install/remove plumbing without scratching surface ( i.e. Tub spout ). The rubber ones like these have a good amount of give/stretch ( I feel like the rubber is going to snap at any time during use - hold the jokes)... I also picked up a similar item at HD: strap material is more like a thick, seat-belt-style cloth material that stretches very little. i.e. http://m.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-3.../100057622
This one has been discontinued [got it on clearance :-))], but if you search the HD website for 'strap wrench' you'll see plenty of differing styles.
Might just get these since I have the "stinky" HF ones myself...

This is precisely my plan... I just re-did my pool plumbing with a salt water generator with threaded unions everywhere. This is exactly what I need.

I've had rubber strap wrenches like this in the past, and the straps start cracking after a few years, ultimately breaking when I'm really counting on them. (so I bought a Ridgid and it works great) Anyone know if these rubber straps have a steel band our something inside for reinforcement?

Having owned both, I can say without a doubt that the Craftsman ones last a ton longer than the Harbor Freight garbage. I actually lost them before they broke and bought a new set just 2 days ago, maybe there's a chance I'll get the difference back.

If nobody has a Sears nearby but instead a Lowes, you can grab this Kobalt set [lowes.com] any time for the same price ($7.99), they're nearly identical to the Craftsman.

these are worthless. If you can't pull it with your hand and you can one of these. you need to start curling some 5lb dumbells and you'll soon overpower the ability these have. Had to stop being cheap and buy the correct adaptor for my mobile one filter. took 2 seconds to get it off with that. It won't grip anything that's not an oil filter either. I mean if you want to pick up a cup filled with water to drink. might work. won't take off anything stuck that your hand can't remove. I see comments on deisel. maybe. normal cars specially nice sporty ones don't even have room for this huge do nothing tool under the hood.
