Description:
The movable jaw slides from side to side by the rocking action of the handle. A thumb lever on the corner of the head allows for one-handed operation to adjust the size of the opening. The patent shows the wrench with flat nut jaws and curved pipe-gripping jaws.

Produced as the L.G. AUTOMATIC WRENCH. A mid-1920s ad lists the wrench in 6 inch and 8 inch sizes, either black or nickel finish.
