Abstract

This describes the use of a rubber (or other material having a substantial coefficient of friction) handle or tools used at right angles in limited access areas. Large, slip-over handles or extenders that slip over wrench handles are well known and called torque multipliers. These well known devices, however, cannot be used in limited spaces.
