me like! Time Owned: more than 12 months.
bought at walmart. got 2 sizes.
as posted earlier, it doesn't fare too well in sort-of confined spaces. that is why a '4' rating.
BUT it does it's job in that if you don't know the exact size, the size doesn't matter.
it's not meant to replace a cheater bar or a breakover bar.

a useful tool as long as you know it's limitations and work within them.
quality is reasonable.
would i buy again? YES!

Works great Time Owned: 3 to 6 months.
Sure it works as a wrench, but it excels in making coax crimps.

Actually, its size makes it tough to get to some bolts in equipment, so lets just call it a fine crimper!

Perfect for making hex-shaped crimps! Time Owned: 6 to 12 months.
This tool is actually designed as a replacement for box-end wrenches. I was wandering around the local Home Depot tool department, and found this tool on clearance for $15.00. One look at it, and I knew it was what I was going to use to crimp the coax connectors on some Time Microwave LMR-600! The Times tool to do this job would have cost me around $230.00! This "wrench" will put a nice hex-shaped crimp on connectors from RG-8 (about minimum size) up to (probably, just guessing) LMR-800. The company makes smaller and larger ones to suit your needs. I don't work for the company, I just appreciate them unknowingly making something that's a great substitute for a $230 tool for about $20! Admittedly, you have to control the amount of tension manually, but hey, you save $200.00 by using this tool to make your crimps!
