The perfect tool has long been the search of many engineers and designers. Jon Steranka, an inventor from Seattle Washington has designed what he believes is the last wrench you will ever need to purchase. Named Aperture, it may soon replace the need for multiple wrenches in your toolbox. Inspiration for the mechanism was drawn from the aperture of a camera lens giving the wrench its name.
Bolts, nuts, and wrenches have been around for hundreds of years, yet the designs have barely been improved upon. This new universal tool seeks to bring innovation to the stagnated wrench design. The mechanism would essentially shrink or enlarge to fit the size of the hex nut or bolt being worked with. A simple slide of the finger would manually adjust the wrench head, which wouldautomatically lock in place. There is even a light that will make working in dark spaces a breeze.
