A podger is a tool that features a wrench on one end and a tapered spike or point on the other.
Extremely popular with scaffolding and event staging the podger is a must have tool as it allows you to quickly and effortlessly assemble and disassemble scaffolding with ease.
Why does it feature two different ends?
The tapered spike end is used to align bolt holes and the wrench end is used to tighten the bolt.
To do this, the tapered end is inserted through the bolt holes which lines then up allowing a bolt to pass through easily without the need for unnecessary force which could result in damage.
Once the bolt is successfully in place the wrench end is used to tighten it.
Which Podger Should You Get?
