Benefits of Tap Wrench

Jan. 16, 2023

A tap wrench is a tool used to hold and turn taps, which are tools used to thread the inside of a hole to create a threaded hole. 

How Tap Wrenches Work?

A tap wrench is a hand tool used to hold and turn taps (thread-cutting tools) to create threads in a hole. The tap wrench typically consists of a handle and a chuck that grips the tap's square or hexagonal shank. The chuck can be adjusted to fit different sizes of taps. The user holds the handle and turns the tap by twisting the handle, which in turn rotates the chuck and the tap. Some tap wrenches also have a built-in mechanism for adjusting the position of the tap for starting or reversing the direction of the thread cutting.

The benefits of using a tap wrench 

Improved accuracy and precision

The jaws of a tap wrench are designed to securely grip the shank of a tap, allowing for more precise control of the tap while threading.

Reduced hand fatigue

A tap wrench allows for the use of both hands to turn the tap, reducing the strain on one hand and allowing for more comfortable and efficient use.


Tap wrenches come in a variety of sizes and styles, allowing them to be used with a wide range of tap sizes.


Using a tap wrench reduces the risk of slipping and injury, as the jaws of the wrench securely hold the tap and prevent it from turning in the hand.
