Impact Wrench (Quick Release)
A design for a safer impact wrench. If you have ever had a swivel socket (wobble socket) fly off from a snap-ring type impact wrench, you realize how the pin type anvils of impact wrenches are much more secure, but not user friendly. The video shows a simple solution for making an impact wrench safer and user friendly as well. The video should show the push button level with the surface of the shaft, but does not. An impact wrench which is safe and user friendly should be available, but sad to say, there is not one manufacturer I know of addressing this issue. Also, the part of the impact wrench in question is called the "anvil" which is not produced in America these days.
