Adjustable Spanner:


Single spanner that can be altered to fit nuts of different sizes by the use of one fixed jaw and one parallel sliding jaw. The two main types are the 'parrot jaw', whose jaws are slanted as in a normal spanner; and the 'king dick', whose jaws are at right angles to the line of the handle, producing a wider range of jaw sizes.
