Hinge Doctor Toolkit

1. Hinge Doctor Complete Tool Kit

Does the building you manage have doors? We thought so. Chances are, some of those doors have hinges that can benefit from being realigned. The Hinge Doctor is a hinge restoration tool, designed to adjust new, worn, and improperly adjusted hinges. If a door in your building is sagging or dragging, it’s due to an issue with the hinge. Left flawed, the hinge will wear faster, and cause damage to the door and the floor underneath the door, while also making the door difficult to open and close. This Hinge Doctor kit includes sizes for both residential and commercial doors, so you’ll be ready to tackle almost any door. Repairs with the Hinge Doctor are quick and easy, allowing you to fix sagging doors in just fifteen seconds! Get the Hinge Doctor Complete Tool Kit and never have hinge issues at the buildings you manage again!

The Offset Non-Marking Pipe Wrench is another must have tool that we carry at Equiparts. It enables you to get to those hard-to-reach places where nuts tend to reside. This tool has a hex jaw design, which gives you a multi-sided, secure grip on all hex nuts, square nuts, unions and valve packing nuts. This Offset Pipe Wrench is non-marking, so you don’t have to worry about damaging or marking the object you are gripping, unlike wrenches with teeth that mark-up brass and remove chrome finish. The jaw is thin and smooth, so it is able to fit into the tightest of places. The wrench jaw opens to a max width of 2-⅝”, and can hold nuts up to 1½”.
