This wiki has been updated 13 times since it was first published in August of 2019. Along with screwdrivers and a hammer, a decent set of adjustable wrenches is a must-have for any toolbox. They're practical and come in handy for everyone from homeowners making light repairs to professionals tackling tough jobs all day long. We've selected a range of models at varying price points, including those that are made for years of rough treatment, so there's something to suit all needs. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

3. Stanley Proto

Editor's Notes

August 27, 2019:

Currently, the popular Channellock Code Blue is a top choice to beat, since they’re user-friendly, durable, and not overly expensive. If you’d prefer a set without grips on the handles, it’s also available in a plain, uncoated chrome. The 2-piece set from Milwaukee is another good option, as is the Stanley Proto. The latter even arrives with a handy roll-up sleeve that can protect them in your tool bag, but you have to be careful not to hold this wrap upside down, since the wrenches could fall out. We also like the innovative Knipex Tools Pliers Wrench, but its price makes it best suited for professionals, rather than casual DIYers. Finally, we opted to add the Jeremywell 23 in 1, even though it is technically not a set. Nonetheless, it is adjustable and can take the place of a set of crescent wrenches, making it useful for those who are pressed for storage space.

4. Knipex Tools 00 20 06 US2 3-piece

5. Kobalt 3-Piece

6. Craftsman Evolv

7. Goplus Pipe Adjustable

8. Irwin Vise-Grip

9. Jeremywell 23 in 1

10. Workpro 4-Piece
