Actually I referred to both types of extensions.

And point well made. It is super critical. As long as the lug nut/stud do not break and the they are not loose or loosen up, then the objective is made! The wheel stays on the trailer.

Sorry for the late reply, was out of town.
I get it, and agree with the handle you said, add to the handle length, and reduce the amount of force rqd to achieve the torque needed. That solves the "discussion" with my neighbor. modifying the wrench end I'll leave for the experts.
Thanks, Excella. Karma to ya.
