You can buy direct from ChimpSystems or Heliwholesaler will have them instock in 1-2 weeks.

I hope ChimpSystems applies for a USA Patent for these?

Otherwise I bet the Chinese factories are already cutting aluminum for copies (Knock - Offs) of these Grippy Tools.

US patents don't do much for out of country manufacturers who don't care. I bet you this thing will be copied in no time.

It's already a copy of the original "CLETUS WRENCH" which I invented and brought to IRCHA last year http://www.cletuswrench.com/

Well I will say I like yours better. It's got other features to it and it looks like the one way bearings are replaceable!

Thanks Finless, we're actually into the first production run now. It took a while to get everything just the way I wanted it and ensuring we had the right suppliers.

Wrong. Bobby had a similar wrench to his "Grippy" since I first met him years ago which was just a bare 6" aluminum tubing with a one-way pressed into the end. Originally, it was Bobby's friend from Maryland (I think) that made it for him well before your "Cletus Wrench" was thought of.

That was great. Wonder if I can get Bobby to pimp some of my tools!

Don't even get me started on clones!
