FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions):

Are Allen keys and hex keys the same?

Yes, Allen keys and hex keys are essentially the same tools. They both refer to a type of wrench or tool used to tighten or loosen screws or bolts with hexagonal heads. The term "Allen key" is more commonly used in the United States and Canada, while "hex key" is a more widely used term internationally. These keys are typically L-shaped, with one or both ends featuring a hexagonal shape that corresponds to the size of the hexagonal screw or bolt head. They come in various sizes and are made from durable materials such as hardened steel or chrome vanadium. So, whether you call them Allen keys or hex keys, they serve the same purpose of fitting and manipulating hexagonal fasteners.

When were Allen keys invented?

Allen keys, also known as Allen wrenches, were invented by William G. Allen in 1910. William G. Allen was an American engineer who developed the tool while working for the Allen Manufacturing Company in Hartford, Connecticut. The Allen key was initially designed to provide a more efficient and secure tool for the set screws used in the socket-head set screws manufactured by the Allen Manufacturing Company. Over time, the tool gained popularity and became widely used for a variety of applications, making it an essential tool in many industries and households today.
