Milli-grip on a front suspension nut

THE MILLI-GRIP SPANNER, from HTM Products Ltd of Sussex, is the essential adjustable, lockable spanner for every car enthusiast’s toolkit . . . and for the MPH Shows at Earls Court (November 4-7) and NEC (November 11-14) every Milli-grip purchase results in £1 for the charity ‘Help for Heroes’.
The MPH shows feature Top Gear Live with television presenters Jeremy Clarkson (a founder patron of ‘Help For Heroes’), James May and Richard Hammond – plus The Stig – with sensational new cars alongside traditional classics and a wealth of car-related products for enthusiasts. Ticket details:
A familiar favourite with car enthusiasts, on sale in the Motoring Pavilions at both Earls Court (Stand 97a) and the NEC (Stand 18), will be the famous Milli-grip spanner - a complete range of millimetre spanners in one, fitting nuts and bolts quickly and precisely without losing any grip . . . a whole box of open-ended spanners in a single tool.


British Invention Show gold medal winner for Product Design and Innovation, the Milli-grip has proved immensely popular among both amateurs and professionals, says experienced engineer Andy Manuel of HTM Products.
The Milli-grip ( rivals, and outstrips, traditional adjustable spanners, which slip and slide - causing grazed knuckles and frayed tempers. None can boast the unique ratchet system which keeps the Milli-grip firmly locked on to a nut or bolt - nor does it need a battery.

HTM Products – now trading as - has both the European and US patents for the spanner, with applications pending in several other countries.
The Milli-grip is an ideal tool for car enthusiasts as well as for boat, bike and caravan owners. The professionals – builders, plumbers and electricians – have also given it the thumbs-up.
Adjustable spanners have been redefined in the all-purpose Milli-grip.


THE MILLI-GRIP is an adjustable spanner that fits metric nuts and bolts from 2mm through to 32mm, in 1mm increments exactly.
With its revolutionary ratchet system, it eliminates the slippage problems inherent in the traditional worm-gear design. In an easy, one-handed operation the Milli-grip adjusts to a precise fit in a fraction of the time it takes to open and close the old-fashioned adjustable spanner.
Made from chrome vanadium, case hardened and finished in chemical black with a non-slip TPR (thermoplastic rubber) handle, the Milli-grip is a quality tool. No more slippage, no more damaged nuts or bolts, no more damage to knuckles!
