A screw-adjusted sliding block adjusts the size of the opening. The adjusting screw has perimeter holes for a nail or wire to serve as a lever handle. A stiff spring is inserted between the sliding jaw and adjusting screw. The spring is intended to exert constant pressure and keep the jaws in contact with the work piece. The specifications describe this as a tap wrench.
