I received the Black & Decker ReadyWrench as a gift from a family member that knows my love of tools. The ReadyWrench is an "all-in-one" style tool for loosening or tightening bolts. Its greatest asset is that changing the socket size is only a matter of turning the head of the unit to find the size that fits. For casual Do-It-Yourself'ers, this is a much simpler approach than running back to the workbench to size a socket correctly.

As other reviewers have noted, the ReadyWrench is not really intended to replace a complete set of socket wrenches because of the limited number of sizes available, but also due to long term wear and tear on the tool. The tool is also a bit on the large side, and you may have difficulty accessing bolts that are not out in the open. It is likely not a great choice, for instance, for automotive work where most bolts are in hard to reach places.

Overall, the Black & Decker ReadyWrench is a solid addition to your home workbench. For a weekend project, start with the ReadyWrench and move on to a more complete wrench set as necessary.

The tool is great if you do not have a set of wrneches and sockets already. It is not something that I would suggest replacing an existing set of tools. I have not broke the tool, but with the moving parts involved, I have less confidence that the tool will withstand a high level of torque. It is a great tool to have in your 'inside toolbox', along with a happer and several screw drivers for quick hope repairs.

This would make for a great stuffing stocker for a person who does not have many tools. This is also a great device for a person who loves gadgets!!

The handle is great, but the tool is altogether a bit on the bulky side.

Great for Homeowners

By 

from Woodbridge, VA

Comments about Black & Decker RRW100 Ratcheting ReadyWrench:

This is one of those tools that is inexpensive and all around good for home owners that don't want to keep a toolbox laying around. The tool is like having 16 different sockets all in one tool. It doesn't by any means replace your socket set, it just puts the most used SAE/Metric sockets in an easy to use format.

Pros: The handle is very comfortable. The price is very cheap in my opinion.

Cons: This tool cannot handle bolts that are more than 2 inches deep. Also, this tools is awkward in the tool box. I have a large 5 drawer toolbox and this thing has to be put in a deep drawer. This doesn't work in hard to reach places.

Overall, this is a good tool to have around the house when you need to remove or take off a bolt without having to pull out the entire toolbox or socket set.

Durable, Useful Tool

By 

from Mansfield, OH

Comments about Black & Decker RRW100 Ratcheting ReadyWrench:

As recent first time homebuyers this wrench has come in handy on multiple occasions.  We received this as a gift and I am so glad we did. We were able to avoid having to buy an entire wrench set that would take up too much space in our small starter toolbox.  This wrench is so durable and feels very sturdy.  It is extremely easy to use (especially for someone who does not use tools on a day to day-or even week to week-basis).  It has a nice cushiony grip to it that makes it feel nice and comfortable in your hand.  We have only had this for a few months, but thus far it has been extremely durable and really doesn't show any signs of wear or damaging.  It has 8 different size settings (the most popular used) and to date we haven't needed to find a wrench in any other size because it has covered our every size need. I would definitely recommend this tool to anyone who may need to use tools as some point. For the price, you're getting an entire wrench set, and because it is so durable, it will last a long time.

Fantastic Practical Wrench!

By 

from Bethlehem, PA

Comments about Black & Decker RRW100 Ratcheting ReadyWrench:

I bought this as a gift for my husband, but lately I've been using it as well. It is pretty heavy, maybe made of cast Iron, and there is a polished area with the different sizes engraved in it. The body of the wrench is angled so that both ends are offset, resulting in an "almost" ergonomic fit; this also adds to its versatility and ease of use. The wrnech ends rotate easily, and the ratcheting piece switches easily from counter to clockwise, depending on your need. 

Considering that you're getting the use of 16 wrenches in one item, I'd call this pretty compact. It's very handy to have when assembling or disassembling things. Given the design of the tool in general, the working ends act as a fulcrum so you get more force put into your motions!

In short, it seems to be of heavy-duty construction, with multiple metric and SAE sizes, and ratcheting action. Overall a good tool so far. It may be harder to find in stores (we found this one online because our local stores no longer carried it).

**Black & Decker RRW100 Ratcheting ReadyWrench is very handy**

The Black and Decker Ratcheting Wrench is an awesume wrench to have around the home. It is heavy duty. When you pick it up, you know it's built well. Plus it's a Black and Decker, so you know it's good. The nice thing about it is it is both Standard and Metric and they are color coded. It has a very comfortable grip and is easy to use. It is very convienient. I use it for all kinds of jobs from auto to little repair jobs. This wrench will stand up to years of use. It has 16 standard and metric sizes and they are all color coded for ease of use and identification. It fits everything and is small enough and large enough for both sizes of jobs.No more trying to find the right tool and size, Just grab the Black and Decker Ratcheting Ready Wrench and you've got the right tool and size for any job. It's a little pricey, but you get what you pay for and it is well worth the price of twenty five bucks. Once you buy it, you will love it. Doc.

Black & Decker Racheting Ready Wrench Wizzard.

By 

from Bismarck, ND

Comments about Black & Decker RRW100 Ratcheting ReadyWrench:

I purchased my Wrench about 6 months ago.  It has helped me loosen bolts I never would have imaged i could get loose.  It is easy to grip and handle, easy to use, not big and bulky.  I can find a size for every bolt that I have tried without hunting for the right wrench.  Wonderful product.

Good Gift Idea for Holidays

By 

from Grand Blanc, MI

Comments about Black & Decker RRW100 Ratcheting ReadyWrench:

I recently purchased this product as a gift idea for my children to put in vehicle should they incur any car problems and to use at college - no one ever seems to have tools at college!  We were happy with the compact design and quality.  The price was was well within the range that we wanted to spend.  The kids report that the tool has already been used several times and often is borrowed by neighbors. 

We have not really tested the limits of this product and all of the uses this far were relatively minor projects.  The projects ranged from assembly of a few lofts to changing a garbage disposal.  They children mentioned that the loft assembly went faster than in the past and the wrench was a big part of that.  For those projects it more than handled the work.  The looks of this product are very nice.  The easy to see sizes was sure a nice feature and sped up the process of finding the right size.

It's a versatile wrench with flaws

By 

from Baltimore, MD

Comments about Black & Decker RRW100 Ratcheting ReadyWrench:

I just tried the Black & Decker Ratcheting ReadyWrench out today. It's an interesting product. The sockets swivel so that you can choose an appropriate socket size. On one side of the socket, red lettering tells you the approximate SAE size.Ratchet sets are bulky, and this crams a bunch of ratchets into one wrench. This tool is great for putting it into your generic job toolbox; the one you take around for "just in case" situations. I was surprised by the weight of this thing when it arrived. It's very solid and weighs 1 to 1.5 lbs.

Comments about Black & Decker RRW100 Ratcheting ReadyWrench:

I purchased this product about 2 weeks ago for my husband and it is living up to what it is suppose to do. We have used it several times since getting it and it is a good tool. I would recommend this and the price was great also for this wrench I thought it would have been higher.
