These tools were made as accessories to domestic and light industrial products.

Typically the spanners were  supplied with the product at the time of sale and were generally provided to enable the end-user to perform routine operating or maintenance tasks on the product.

These products covered a wide range of items such as lawn mowers, beds, gas bottles and spray painting equipment. The quality of the tools supplied often reflected the likely frequency of use and robustness required and so ranged from simple pressed-steel tools to diecast and more rugged forged tools.
