Do you have a tool that will help tighten fittings?

IDEX Health & Science offers Extender Tools that are especially useful to tighten or loosen IDEX Health & Science Fittings in hard-to-reach places. The tool’s design eliminates the potential problem of breaking off the heads of nuts. In addition, these product provide relatively uniform tightening of our Fittings into unions, tees, crosses and valves, taking the guess work out of the tightening process.

Our newer tools also have a 1/4 hex drive to attach to a torque wrench for an exact torque spec.

To help tighten our Headless Flangeless Nuts, IDEX Health & Science has developed a special Extender Tool, the P-297. This aluminum tool lets you easily tighten Headless nuts, thus improving their holding power.
