Sets Offer Popular Selections of Latest Ratcheting Wrenches

SPARKS, MD (August 5, 2015) – GearWrench®, a premier hand tool brand from Apex Tool Group, known for tools that deliver speed, strength, and access, today announced the addition of four new sets to its highly regarded 120XP Universal Spline XL Ratcheting Wrench line.

GearWrench 120XP Universal Spline XL Ratcheting Wrenches feature numerous advantages, including:

Superior Access

120XP Universal Spline XL Ratcheting Wrenches have double-stacked pawls that deliver 120 positions and a three-degree swing arc. They also have a narrow ratchet-end width and thickness, allowing technicians to reach fasteners in tight clearance situations.

Greater Reach

120XP Universal Spline XL Ratcheting Wrenches feature a beam design that’s longer for greater reach in confined areas. The open end is narrower and both ends have reduced outside dimensions, making this tool a must-have for working on fasteners in cramped locations.

Flexibility and Versatility

The Universal Spline drive design means technicians need only one tool to work on several different style fasteners, including: spline, 12-point, 6-point, e-torx, square and rounded 6-point. Dual Direction Surface Drive® on the open end provides better grip and reduces fastener rounding.


Both sides of each wrench have highly visible, recessed color size markings to help technicians easily identify the correct wrench to get jobs done quickly.


All 120XP Universal Spline XL Ratcheting Wrenches exceed ASME performance requirements.

End users can now purchase the following new 120XP™Universal Spline XL sets:

  • SKU 86427: 16 piece Metric Set 8mm – 24mm
  • SKU 86428: 4 piece Metric Set 20, 21, 22, 24mm
  • SKU 86451: 16 piece SAE Set 7/32” – 1”
  • SKU 86452: 7 piece SAE Set 13/16” – 1-1/4”

“Our 120XP Universal Spline XL Ratcheting Wrench line is rapidly becoming one our best-selling products,” said Jim Stewart, product manager for GearWrench. “These new sets offer technicians excellent selections of the sizes they use most often.”

For organized storage, the new 120XP Ratcheting Wrench sets come with an easy-grab V-rack. Resistant to gas and solvents, the rack’s compact design takes up less space in a drawer or box. Wrenches sit in angled tray slots, providing a neat fit in a 2-inch drawer.
