Hensley OCL Wrench

I lost my Hensley OCL wrench. I must have left it on the back bumper and drove off. It cost $12 at Hensley and $15 to ship UPS ground. Expensive mistake.

I was thinking about finding some square steel tubing and making a socket for my rachet. I have a step bumper on my van and its hard to get a good turn with the OCL wrench. With the rachet, I was thinking I could get a few good smaller turns. The tire iron end does come in handy for unhitching.

My OCL wrench is somewhere in Big Bend. Did the same thing, laid it on the bumper and drove off. I had large crescent wrench I always carry and it has served me well for the past 2 1/2 years. It works just as well and has other uses, too. I did learn from the experience: don't lay anything on the bumper.

Those things used to be black, so that happened a lot more often. Can-Am RV always orders an extra batch of wrenches when they place thier order, so they must get quite a few requests.

When we get to Heaven, we'll find all our lost OCL wrenches along with the screwdrivers our kids keep borrowing.

Cheap can of orange paint would help a visual inspection prior to departing your camp site. I have a few bright orange tools in my camper - the second version of each.....
