You need one to walk down a few highstreets.
some cars have 21mm or 23mm wheel studs so make sure your car has 17 or 19mm studs otherwise you will need to get another socket as well if your car has not got 17 or 19mm studs
Delivery £4
Had one of these which twisted out of shape trying to get the stud off. I wouldnt bother with one of these again. Cheap for a reason.
About as useful as a marzipan dildo, but not quite as rigid. I had one of these, the wheel wrench, not the dildo, and it was bent and twisted before I loosened the third wheel nut. Luckily I was at home changing the wheel at home and could resort to my breaker bar - I wouldn't want to rely on this at the roadside.

Had one and it twisted just behind the socket, as you say, cheap for a reason!
we got one of these but it is for golf, although we leave it near the front door in case anyone tries to break in

does it beautifully reflect the lights of the inside of your caravan?
No use for me my nuts are too big.

Amazing how many people have claimed to have this one and it bent or broke, to many just decide it's cheap so I will tell everyone how it will break just by looking at it, I have had mine a few years now and recently used on my caravan, I had to stamp on this tool to remove the wheel bolts with no problems. I have also used it to remove rear cassettes on bike wheels and they get real tight after years of peddling.

I had one of these, and I too had to jump on it full weight (in the region of 12-16st'ish... cough ) and it did not bend, unlike the arches of my feet.

Ordered a couple so thank you for posting

As for the ^its broke^ comments, seems to be the nature of
the beast on here, bit more ^don't rely on google^ research
and a bit less instant negative response might ease the mods jobs!
It is surprising who the actual manufacturer of these, for the
company that then sells them to the wilko group is, shame wilko
are having to offset their future stores, by moving more on line
[like most older uk companies] for sales, but that is inevitable
with the wilko jobs being lost over this and next year and the
way e-tailers are forcing stores to close all over.. not just W!

This is the normal price, I paid £5 for it last year when I bought one, was it the same price when you bought yours a few years ago? I only used my body weight (no stamping with feet) and it twisted just behind the nut! Maybe I was unlucky, although I then borrowed a much older extending wrench from a mate (not a wilko one), and the difference in quality was noticeable. I did have to stamp on it, but it didn't twist. They don't make tools like they used to, but then what can you expect for £5.

I've got one of these (although I got it from Amazon, not from Wilko, so I don't know if there's any difference in quality) and it's so much better than the tyre iron that came with my car due to the extra torque you get from the length. I had to fix a leaky valve in one of my tyres over the summer and I couldn't loosen any wheel nuts with the tyre iron, even by jumping on it, but having this made all the difference.

So for £5 I'd recommend having one in your car just in case you need it, because it would be so much better than having to call a tow truck and paying however much that would cost, even if it does bend while using it.
