This cheap plastic Rite-Hite wrench cracked the first time I used it.

Not a practical tool
The polymer wrench is a one time solution to a continuing situation. Although I did get the prop nut loose the socket of the wrench did strip slightly. The wrench is a waste of resources and money. A regular 1 1/16 socket with a 1/2 inch drive is a much better use of money and resources and cost just a little more. Plus the 1/2 inch drive and 1 1/16 socket can be used for a varity of projects and is a much more useful tool for your tool box. The public would be better served if they were advised or offerred a 1 1/16deep socket and 1/2 inch drive. I paid $24.00 for a good drive and socket.

Had to modify for it to fit
I bought this to fit a 90 hp. Suzuki. It's nice because it won't rust and seems to be pretty sturdy. However, when I received it, the wrench wouldn't fit on my prop nut or a NEW prop nut that I have as a spare. It was the correct size, but I had to take a dremel tool and grind a groove in the corners of each hex (beside all of the flat areas) to allow enough clearance for the wrench to fit over the edges of the prop nut. Once I did this, it fit and worked great.

Product appears to be of good quality. Product fits 1-1/16" prop nut and is advertised to fit Mercury engines over 50HP. I should have checked size on my prop before ordering but I didn't, I have a 60HP and thought it would work. Mine requires a 15/16" wrench, so now I will have return shipping on this item.
