Clamping Washers are used by many manufacturers to hold stuff like underbody heat shields and sound deadening materials, in place.

They are lightweight, sprung-steel washers that push on to and grip a simple, coarsely threaded stud that is permanently attached to the vehicle body. Unfortunately, they can be tricky to remove once corroded without breaking them or bending the stud.

This useful clamping washer tool (part number 7347) has been specifically developed to make the removal and fitting of these clamping washers and easy and straightforward task.

Designed for the 32mm diameter washers, the two steel pins engage with the washer and allow a cordless drill or any ¼in drive wrench to be used to spin the washer and allow it to wind its way off.

This method of removal helps avoid breaking the clip, damaging the pin and also helps reduce the chance of the operator cutting themselves on the sharp-edged clips, particularly when they break.
