Pivoting Spanner

   This unique concept provides a grip/pivot hole on the tool
(wrench) to aid in accessing low and hard-to-get-at places, i.e,
equipment enclosure cabinet leveling feet.  The pivot holes are
countersunk to better fit your fingers and to provide a smooth
bearing surface.

   The finger pivot points on the tool make it more efficient
and easier to use by providing a larger swing radius than allowable
by gripping the tool in the conventional way.  The pivot in the
middle of the tool can be used for maximum torque and the pivot on
the end can be used for speed under minimum torque conditions.  See
the attached pictures.
