Expert Rating

The Olympia satin chrome finished wrench is ranked as one of the best wrench products on the market along with the ToolGuards 22-Piece Ratchet Wrench Set, Tekton 15-Piece Combination Wrench Set, Tekton 10-Piece Crowfoot Wrench Set. The 15 inch Tekton adjustable wrenches are a close comparison to the Olympia. The Olympia has a wide jaw capacity and is made of drop forged alloy steel for the strongest construction possible.

This wrench is a moderate deal when compared to our top rated wrenches. At just under $26 you get a 15 inch wrench that will last you a lifetime. On top of that, you get free shipping from the company, even if you are not an Amazon Prime member. The heavy duty drop forged heat treated carbon steel will allow you to tighten or loosen any bolt with ease. Overall, it’s a good value product.
