DeckWise® 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.

This lighter and more economical board bender version makes the Hardwood Wrench Jr.™ a valiant contender as it brazenly bends unruly hardwoods, thermal woods, pressure treated, and composites into submission. Just like his Papa!

Even the most seasoned deck installer knows it can be grueling when it comes to getting warped deck boards straight and aligned. Especially when it’s a one-man show or a weekend project! That’s where our lightweight, multidirectional Hardwood Wrench Jr.™ comes into play.

The Hardwood Wrench Jr.™ is one of the most advanced board straightening tools ever created for edge-groove and face screw board fastening. Utilizing a rotating cam leveraging a pushing action up to 1,100 lbs. of force, this tool rapidly increases deck board installation with more efficiency over typical bending of warped boards with pry bars or chisels. Give yourself the freedom you need with a 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.™ onto a joist (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 to continue installing deck fasteners. It’s that easy!

Our advanced and patented technology of the Hardwood Wrench Jr.™ utilizes a rotating, locking cam coupled with an elongated dogleg which stabilizes and locks this tool into place. Furthermore, this board bender has no uncooperative wheels or flexible tubing that can slip or spin off the board edge, making the installer stop fastening just to reset the tool again. And again.

Its hardened steel handle is strong and the solid steel gripping joist pins provide anyone installing a deck the ability to straighten deck boards from both left- or right-hand direction. This is especially useful when straightening a board on the outside of the deck frame.
