The socket has two interior spurs to catch the corners of nuts on fish-plate bolts. This allows one socket to fit a range of nut sizes. The socket is driven by bevel gears, turned by a "T" handle tall enough to be turned by a standing man. The wrench has a folding foot plate which clamps over the top of a rail to help hold it in position on the nut.
