    1st review

    I like this tool because it firs nicely into your bunker gear pocket and you don’t even notice it. I haven’t used for anything more than the gas shut off and the spanner wrench but it was nice not to have go all the way back to vehicle to get a tool when you had it in your pocket. Especially the spanner side after everything is done and you have that one stubborn coupling. Having 2 on you for that purpose would be best unless one of your team members near by have one on them also.

    Worthless its to light weight I’d rather carry a heavy tool that works than a light one that doesn’t. The spanner is to flimsy to open stuck coupling, the seat belt cutter dulls too quickly and the window punch, well just about any other tool can punch a window.

    great idea however not as durable as it should be for the job at hand.

    Great product. Have not had any issues with mine other than a few deep scratches from taking glass out of cars with it.

    Love my res q rench! i had 2 at one time, but passed one off to the last rookie i helped break in so he could know my joy! I wish it could be a lil stronger, but you can't pry everything with a pocket tool i suppose!

    This tool has been a Godsend, we've carried it for the last 7 years at our department. It is compact enough to fit in the pocket of my bunker gear, and half the time I forget it's there.

    We carry these as well, they are great, always where you need it, right in your pocket. Small enough to carry, but extremely functional.

    Light weight, seatbelt cutter works well, not sure how it will hold up shutting off gas line. Seams to flex when putting pressure taking appliances off hydrant. Overall it works for what I use it for.

    the window punch and seat belt cutter are probably the most useful features about the Res-Q-Rench. The spannner is kind of weak yet I still carry this tool.
