Altman WRENCH Overview

The Altman Multi-Purpose Stage Wrench is a useful tool in the studio or theater. It is made of die-cast aluminum, and features many common rectangular and hex-nut sizes. Use it to tighten or loosen stubborn, or hard-to-get-to fixtures. The four-star end also allows adjustment of those rusty old fixtures that have no side handles. It also looks cool hanging out on your carpenter pants!

This tool is invaluable when working with stage lights. I don't have to carry multiple tools. It simply fits into my back pocket, making it easy to carry around and pull out when needed.

Very light-weight and useful. A must for working on our stage-light fixtures. I wish it came with an attached coil-cord. Fits every fixture we have tried it on so far.

I have been using Altman wrenches in theatre and outdoor festivals for years. Any size bolt can be easily loosened or tightened with this wrench. Also it looks pretty cool hanging from your belt.

I bought this wrench for my daughter who is working on the stage crew of her high school. I have had my Altman wrench since College. I was going to give her my wrench but I cant part with it. So many memories and lights focused.

great tool!

What are the sizes of the wrench? Could you please list the full specs?
Asked by: Shu
The answer below is not completely accurate. It is designed for use with theatrical fixtures as manufactured by Altman and other major theatrical brands. The cross of the wrench was specifically sized for the T-Handle knobs of the 360Q and other products of its time, however it will still work with many modern T-Handles. The cutout holes on the wrench are sized to accommodate standard bolt sizes related to theatrical fixtures and hardware. This includes the hex bolts used on most C-clamps, and other fixture hardware (such as TVMP adapters). The square holes are sized for the main locking bolt on most C-clamps as well as the smaller pan lock bolt provided on the Altman 510 clamps. Please feel free to contact me directly should you require additional information. [email protected]

I need to tighten the knobs on an Avenger Mini Boom D600, (the smaller ones on the boom extension). Will the star fitting of this wrench fit those knobs?
Asked by: lee
This wrench is specifically for tightening bolts on C-clamps or yoke attachments. It will not work with the handles on an Avenger Mini Boom.
