DetailsA Shank Securing Wrench is used to install a faucet, or to remove it for cleaning. Midwest recommends this item to anyone who buys a faucet. Faucet collars that get any beer between them and the shank can get quite sticky. The wrench makes disassembly, even with sticky faucets, a breeze.

2 months agoFrustratingly neededI have no qualms with this product itself. Its super cheap, does the job and is great._x000D__x000D_I am annoyed that we need it though. Why do I have to buy a special wrench to tighten these? Why couldn't they put a hex shaped washer there instead of smooth, so I can use a crescent wrench or some such. It is annoying, but the product is great.October 30, 2012Perfect ToolThere is something to be said about using the proper tool for the job. No marring the finish on my shanks to get a proper tight seal to the Perlick faucets. Not a lot of money to save the finish and make things easier.November 3, 2012GreatWrench is great as it is needed ti tighten down faucets. You'll be glad you bought it.November 18, 2012essentialYou almost have to have one of these to tighten your faucets. If not you can scratch things. Midwest also sells one for a few more bucks that has the hex wrench on the other side that you need for the other side of the shank. You can tighten the hex with almost any wrench, but I find the convenience of the double sided tool worth the money.December 19, 2012Low Cost, Good ProductThis is an essential piece of equipment to tighten faucets. My only problem is that I didn't buy one when I first bought faucets because I didn't realize I needed it. This makes your life ten times easier when taking them apart to clean.January 4, 2013HandyDon't mar your keg shanks and taps by trying to go at them with a pliers, just get one of these little tools to do the trick and save yourself a lot of hassle. Worth it.January 31, 2013Must haveThis is a must have tool if you are running faucets. To my knowledge there are no faucet/shank setups that don't require a pin style wrench to tighten or remove for cleaning. Do yourself a favor, the wrench is inexpensive, if you are running faucets for your keg buy one...... Don't use pliers, you will just mar things up. I did have to take a file to the pin and do a little light clean up so that it would come off of the shank nut a little easier, but this was no issue. Great buy if you are using keg/faucet/shank instead of picnic taps.February 18, 2013
