Cap-style filter wrenches
Able to accommodate most common filters, a cup-style design allows easy removal and installation from the end of the filter, even in tight locations. Four available sizes, ranging from 65mm-93mm, handle 14 or 15 flute filters.

Cap sockets
Designed to handle a variety of applications, KTI oil filter cap sockets are rugged, laser marked and work even in confined areas. Two new sizes include 32mm to 35mm/36mm.

4-in-1 filter wrench
This handy filter wrench boasts a vinyl handle to provide better grip and strength, and a sturdy swivel handle to clear obstructions. A wide studded band prevents crushed filters. Mechanics who demand a tough and durable product can count on the 4-in-1’s stainless steel bands. Includes bands sized from 2-3/8” to 4-3/8” (61mm-111mm).

Heavy-duty strap oil filter wrench
Designed for high torque requirements of truck filters, KTI’s heavy-duty strap oil filter has a forged steel handle, and extra length, sturdy strapping. A no-strip strap grips filters tightly. Wrench adapts to spin filters up to 9”.

All KTI hand tools come with a life-time warranty.
