Description:
The patent adds a handle and a rubber nut retainer to "the ordinary carriage wrench." The drawing shows this feature as a rubber ring and notches in the socket. The specifications make a broader claim for including a rubber gripper of some sort in the socket.

Ken Cope's "American Wrench Makers 1830-1930" reprints an 1873 "Scientific American" item indicating the wrench was produced with a rubber roller in one side of the socket rather than the rubber ring shown in the patent drawings.
