For over 80 years we have been a company that has constantly put our customer on the forefront of our minds and our innovations. We continually ask ourselves how we can make our products better, the experience better, and our processes better for you, our customers. Perfecting Performance is ingrained in everything we do because it is not only our tagline, it is our company mantra.
All Wright-manufactured products are U.S. made and carry lifetime guarantees against defects in workmanship. Cougar Pro branded tools are made in Taiwan, and also carry a lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects. Many of the unique design features developed by Wright Tool have been imitated by others and are now accepted as industry standards. But only Wright Tool has the patents and the engineering talent that helped revolutionize the way ratchets, sockets and wrenches are designed and made.
We provide our customers with the ability to access Wrights large factory stock which has the fastest, most reliable shipment record in the industry—98% shipped complete in less than 36 hours.
Manufacturing / Engineering
Engineering Innovations and Improvements
Wright engineers are continually improving existing tool designs and introducing innovative new tools. We use state-of-the-art CAD/CAM technologies to lead the way in our industry. Even our computer programs are written in-house.
Wright Tool uses four different hot-forging processes. All tools are forged using tough 4140 alloy steel. Hot-forging gives our products excellent grain flow for higher toughness, longer wear and better reliability than cold-formed tools.
Our design, engineering, hot-forging and choice of steel give our tools greater strength in close quarters.
Value-Added Secondary Operations
From tool-making to heat-treating to plating, Wright offers one-source control to assure the highest possible quality.
Made Entirely in the U.S.A.
From the design and engineering to the forging and finishing, all work on Wright tools is performed in the United States by skilled American workers. We do not use foreign blanks or forgings. Even the steel we use is American-made.
Wider Variety of Products
Wright offers a complete line of superior-quality hand tools including ratchets, sockets, wrenches, and attachments for the industrial, contractor, and MRO markets.
Unique Ratchet Features
- Higher strength through superior design
- Greater toughness
- Works in close quarters
- Double-pawl design for more reliability and fine action with large teeth
- Balls instead of plungers for longer wear
- Contour, nitrile, ergonomic grips for easier use with less fatigue
- Easy cleaning without losing parts
Our ratchets have twice the number of positions with no increase in the number of teeth. The greater strength and smoother ratcheting action works better in tight places. Double-pawl ratchets retain all of the long-wearing characteristics of the single-pawl design. Precision manufacturing provides greater strength and longer life.
Wright manufactures small-sized ratchets for specialized applications such as hard-to-reach spots.
Designed for heavy-use, long-term service, Wright sockets are second to none.
Outstanding in design, quality, and selection. Available in either full polish or satin finish.
Wright offers a full line of bolting tools, including torque wrenches, stronger sockets and ratchets, and sturdy combination wrenches.
The Patented Wright Drive® 12-Pt. Design
Not just a modification, but an entirely new tool design. The Wright Drive 12-point design distributes contact stress evenly over a larger contact area and away from the fastener corners. The result is ten times more socket-to-fastener contact area than conventional sockets. This design also increases leverage while decreasing rounding and distortion of fasteners. Patented #4,882,957.
The Patented Wright Drive® 6-Pt. Design
Ideal for impact sockets. Wright combines the benefits of our exclusive 12-point design (greater strength, more torque and reduced rounding of corners) with the better gripping action of a 6-point opening. The result is a better grip on undersized fasteners and fasteners with badly rounded corners. Patented #5,284,073.
The Wright Spline is the next step beyond Wright Drive. Wright Spline is the highest strength wrench for high strength fasteners and is good for ordinary hex and 12-pt. fasteners too.
WRIGHTGrip—the innovative design on our open-end combination wrenches—delivers more torque while increasing tool life and strength.
