Filter & Strap Wrenches

Filter and strap wrenches - commonly called chain wrenches - are used to hold or turn smooth circular objects, such as knobs, pipes and tubing. Filter strap wrenches work via a strap or chain that is pulled in tension around an object until it grips it firmly.

Types of filter and strap wrenches

The strap or chain involved can take various forms. Some straps are made of nylon and are smooth and flexible, while others are steel, which are firmer but still with some flexibility. The chains tend to be of the roller chain type (like a bicycle chain). You could also choose:

  • Oil-filter wrenches - specifically used for removing spin-on type oil filters. These filters are smooth, cylindrical canisters that are otherwise difficult to grip.

How to use a filter and strap wrench
