LOGGERHEAD TOOLS’ BIONIC WRENCH™ RECEIVES POPULAR MECHANICS’ EDITOR’S CHOICE AWARD AT
2005 NATIONAL HARDWARE SHOW
Las Vegas, May 19, 2005 – LoggerHead Tools’ Bionic Wrench™ received an Editor’s Choice Award from Popular Mechanics magazine on Tuesday, May 17 at the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas. The awards honor new products that exemplify innovation, invention, design and engineering. The Bionic Wrench™ was one of 16 products chosen from thousands of exhibitors at the show, and one of two hand tools selected.
The Bionic Wrench™, just announced earlier this month, is a new type of hand tool that combines the best features of an adjustable pliers and wrench. It delivers a mechanical advantage unlike any other adjustable wrench because it equally distributes force around the workload. The Bionic Wrench™ automatically sizes and grips 16 U.S. and metric-sized nuts and bolts, eliminating the need to search for the exact size wrench for a project. It will not slip or round off nuts and bolts like other gripping tools and often can remove fasteners damaged by other pliers or wrenches.
“As an independent inventor, I am truly honored,” said Dan Brown, founder of LoggerHead Tools. “Popular Mechanics has been a part of my life for many years. I have read through the Editor’s Choice awards with great interest and amazement at the ingenuity involved. To be a recipient of this award is the proudest moment in my professional life.”
Brown added that seeing the public response to the Bionic Wrench™ at the National Hardware Show has been gratifying. “I enjoy the expression of amazement each time a person tries the Bionic Wrench™ for the first time. It has the ‘wow factor.’ People often say, ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’”
The Bionic Wrench™ is made in the United States and guaranteed forever. It is now available for $28.95 at http://www.loggerhead tools.com or by contacting 1-888-564-4374 (LOGGERHEAD). The Bionic Wrench™ will be introduced in retail outlets this summer, and 6-and 10-inch Bionic Wrench™ sizes will be offered within the next 12 months.
