Title Combination Wrench, Pliers and Screwdriver
The problems the inventor(s) wanted to solve Keeping separate tools to do related jobs.
Descripton. This industrial design for a combination tool has the advantages of convenience and lighter weight over separate tools to do the same jobs.
Presentation. Comprising a wrench and a plier member, each having a jaw section and a handle section. However, the pliers handle includes a screwdriver member formed at its point end.
Fields of application. General do-it-yourself carpentry and handyman work.
Advantages This arrangement provides for an increased lever arm or torque in use. Also, the plier member may be used as a lever arm which is ideally located for this application.
