Prior to buying this breaker bar, I used a 18" Craftsman breaker bar and a cheater pipe to tighten the blade nuts to the recommended 100-120 lb ft. That setup worked for several years but doing away with the cheater pipe makes things safer and less complicated.
This breaker bar makes doing tough chores easy.

For years my preferred method of changing oil was to remove the drain plug by hand after first loosening it with a wrench. This of course always resulted in getting oil (usually hot oil) on my hands.
The OTC Drain Plug Pro has solved the problem of oil all over my hands. After loosening the drain plug with a wrench, the powerful magnet in the tip of the OTC Drain Plug Pro locks onto the drain plug. Then rotating the handle removes the drain plug with your hands away at a safe distance.
This is one of those tools that now I have it, I wonder why I didn't get one a long time ago.
