Title:
DOUBLE-USE GRIPPER FOR SUPPLY LINES
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2017/099575
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a gripper (200) for tightening connectors (120, 140) of plumbing supply lines (100), and to a method for installing and using said gripper (200). The double-use gripper (200) includes a body (205) having an upper cavity (220), a lower cavity (240), an opening (250) for receiving the plumbing supply line (100), and one or more gripping projections (270) for the user to hold. The cavities (220, 240) in the gripper (200) have shapes that match those of the respective connectors (120, 140) of the supply line (100), such that they are coupled for conjoint rotation. The gripper is particularly useful for manually tightening or loosening the connectors (120, 140) in areas where there is not enough free space for using a conventional tool.
