Types of Automotive Hand Held Tools

Having the right hand-held tools can save you time and money. Here are some useful tools that are used and are essential to any hand-held tool kit.


A wrench, also known as a spanner, is a tool used to tighten bolts and nuts. It has a hand-held lever with a notch, typically at both ends, which can harness the nut or bolt and twist it to secure the nut or bolt in place. Wrench attachments can come in various sizes, suitable for the smallest of bolts to the larger variations. There is also the variant of a torque wrench, which is a handheld wrench that can tighten nuts and bolts to a particular torque. Similar is a ratchet, which is a bar with a cog at one end that moves in one direction and can also adjust, loosen or tighten nuts or bolts.


Pliers are hand-held pincers used to grab and/or twist or handle the smaller parts of the vehicle, typically wires. They come in a variety of shapes and normally have serrated edges mostly for grabbing smaller objects or can have sharp edges and be used to cut materials and wires.


Screwdrivers come in a variety of shapes and sizes. As much as it is useful to have larger screwdrivers, any helpful toolkit should also contain the smaller variants for the more detailed repairs and small screws that will need to be fitted into place. They are also useful for electrical repairs to your vehicle. The shape of the tip can also vary, from star-shaped tips to flatter tips, which shapes can also come in different thickness variations, specific for any particular repair.


A multimeter is used to check electrical current and voltage, and is invaluable when doing electrical repairs, taking all the guesswork out of your electrical problems.
