DeckWise® announces their New Hardwood Wrench Jr.™ Board Bending Tool

Deck installers and contractors know our original Hardwood Wrench™ is the beefiest, most stout deck board bending tool on the market! DeckWise® has now scaled down the Hardwood Wrench™ to a “junior” size for the DIYer and weekend warrior deck builder.

Even the most seasoned deck installer knows how grueling it can be when wrangling bent and warped deck boards into submission. Especially when it’s a one-man show or a weekend project! This is where the lightweight, multi-directional components and multi-configuration features save the day. A must have in every tool box!

The uncomplicated design if the Hardwood Wrench Jr.™ fashions it as one of the most innovative board straighteners ever created. Its simplicity results in a lightweight, economical deck board tool making it a valiant contender bending unruly hardwoods, thermal woods, pressure treated, and composites.

Use when fastening edge-groove clips or when top-down face screwing on either wood or metal joists. Its universal versatility easily adjusts to fit 1-1/2″ to 3″ wide joists and utilizes a cam-lever action pushing up to 1,100 lbs. of force. This rapidly increases on-site deck installations with more efficiency over typical pry bars or chisels.

Our advanced and patented technology utilizes a rotating, locking cam coupled with an elongated dog-leg, which stabilizes and locks this tool into place. Additionally, there are no uncooperative wheels, dials, clamps, or flexible tubing that can slip or spin off the board or joist, making the installer stop fastening just to reset the tool again. And again.

  • Solid Steel Pins Grab Joists Tight

Give yourself the freedom you need with a deck tool that delivers true “One-Man, One-Hand Installation” capabilities. Simply set your deck boards in place to install hidden deck fasteners or face screws. When an unwieldy board comes your way, place the Hardwood Wrench Jr.™ (or Hardwood Wrench™) onto a joist in either single or double joist configuration, and slide it up the joist so the locking cam touches the edge of the warped board. Effortlessly swing the handle upward to lock the board into a straight position, locking the board in place. Now continue fastening the deck board. It’s that easy!
