From Mr. HVAC
This inexpensive but specialized tool is very handy and should be part of any technician’s tool kit. It is used to removed specialized caps open refrigerant specialized refrigerant valves. You could get away with using an adjustable wrench but they are uncool. Plus, this wrench works better in tight places and you won’t run the risk of striping the valve stem.
This wrench is the best combination of solid build quality and price that I could find. I just wish it came with some type of case. I love cases. 🙂 This would make a great gift for a service or installation technician.
