EZ Spanner is the brainchild of 15 year veteran Los Angeles Fire Department Engineer, Dennis Garrison. Created from a common in-the-field, safety necessity, the unique design concept for EZ Spanner Ratcheting Fire Hydrant Wrench came to Dennis after an on-the-job back injury, while opening one of Los Angele’s almost impossible to open hydrants.Dennis put pen-to-paper and the EZ Spanner Ratcheting Fire Hydrant Wrench was born.
Dennis realized that running the day-to-day operations, sales, and product development of a start-up company solo – while working full time and overtime as a fire fighter – was not in the best interest of his new company Better Tools, LLC. Naturally, Dennis turned to his co-worker and close trusted friend Dan Will to join the company. Dan brings his outgoing personality, persistence, and experience to the table. Dan has been invaluable attracting impressive sales and managing relationships with distributors and vendors.
Since Better Tools, LLC launched its first product, the 4-hole ratcheting EZ Spanner Wrench, Dennis Garrison and Dan Will have brought to market six additional “I wish I would have thought of that” products. Dan and Dennis both share the vision of bringing better, safer and more efficient innovative products to fellow firefighters around the world. It has proven to work for them during their day-to- day firefighting operations – they know it will work for you.
