Award-Winning American Innovation

LoggerHead Tools’ mission is to create innovative hand tools manufactured in America. The company’s flagship product is the Bionic Wrench™, a tool that combines the convenience of pliers with the performance of a wrench. The company launched the Bionic Wrench at the National Hardware Show in 2005 and has since sold 3 million wrenches worldwide. The Bionic Wrench has won 10 international design awards and is the basis for several LoggerHead Tools product designs.

Dan Brown Jr. and Dan Brown Sr. of LoggerHead Tools

LoggerHead Tools was founded by Dan Brown Sr., a serial inventor with the goal of manufacturing products in the United States using 100 percent American components and labor. He hopes the commercial success of the Bionic Wrench will encourage other companies to do the same.

Today Dan Sr. is a professor of product design at Northwestern University, where he inspires students to create their own inventions. He holds over 40 patents and was inducted into the Inventor Hall of Fame in 2020. The U.S. Secretary of Commerce recently appointed him to the Patent Public Advisory Committee, part of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. In this role, he advocates for the rights of independent inventors and supports efforts to fight patent piracy.

LoggerHead Tools is led by his son, Dan Brown Jr. As president of LoggerHead Tools, Dan Jr. has sold over $50 million in retail sales with major retailers and appears on QVC as a guest host to sell LoggerHead Tools products. He has also developed successful national television infomercials for LoggerHead Tools.
