We hear it all the time; “I wish I had THAT last week!” It never gets old to see the astonishment at the delight contractors and builders have once they first see the DeckWise® Hardwood Wrench™ in motion. They begin to act like small kids mastering the last piece of chocolate candy. They like to raise it upward in the air as if it were a Knight's sword, sensing its hefty toughness and straight away attempt to break the handle once they apply it on our deck joist show table. It's thrilling to observe!

Then why the excitement and astonishment when builders get a look of our deck board straightening tool? The reality is that bending deck boards that are warped into place using a chisel is a primary method in the deck building industry. It's a practice that gets handed down from builder to builder and generation to generation. It's not wrong per say, just more of an an old-school method.

When patio and deck installers think about how back breaking it is to battle unwieldy deck boards – especially hardwood deck boards – they then notice the ease of use our Hardwood Wrench™ offers them, of course they get psyched. Besides, anytime contractors see our wrench includes a locking cam which permits them to let go of the wrench handle while they are fastening, they immediately know they will definitely not need a knee propped up in order to hold it in place. They understand the wrench will not pop off the deck board such as other wrenches often do.

This is right when we hear deck installers ask, “Where can I get me one of THESE WRENCHES?

Straighten Effortlessly

The Hardwood Wrench™ tool is easy to operate with a single deck installer with many benefits over other methods of straightening deck boards. All it takes is a simple swing of the Hardwood Wrench™ tool's handle and it will make even an extremely bowed board straight as an arrow.

The Hardwood Wrench is a must for any deck builder! We have used it on Standard decking and Hardwood with great success. This tool puts the others to shame when it comes to strength and ease of use. I have purchased numerous inferior tools in the past that just wear down; but the Hardwood Wrench is with me for the long haul.Vincent Monteforte (W.Kingston, Rhode Island)
I had a nightmare deck project and was working alone with a pile of bowed wood. My neighbor saw my frustration and handed me his Hardwood Wrench . Amazed that such a tool actually existed I managed to get back on track and completed the job in half the time. The only bad part about the tool was when I had to give it back!Steve Whitehead (Groton, Connecticut)
I have two words Strong & Simple! This tool makes my projects painless! I’m just a one man operation so the Hardwood Wrench serves as my crew.Pete Meadows (Rugby, North Dakota)
