Description:
Screw adjust pocket wrench; several alternate forms are shown in the drawings that include nut jaws and screwdrivers along with an optional double-jaw version having nut and pipe jaws. All include a fold-out handle which is held in place by the adjusting screw for the movable jaw. The nut of that adjusting screw has a notch to allow the handle to swing out.

It appears that if this was tried for real that the leverage of the fold-out handle would either shear a bite out of the adjusting nut or split out the notch in the folding handle.
