WW2 M38 German Paratrooper Helmet Spanner Bolt Tool - Schraubenschlüssel 8mm

The helmets in the pictures are not for sale

You are bidding on a post war made German WWII Spanner Bolt (or wrench), tool. This tool is used for tightening and loosening the spanner bolts on a Paratroopers M38 Model helmet. This tool has been made from an original and has been engineered from high quality steel on the body and hardened steel on the engagement shafts. Finally it has been left in its natural finish. The originals were made by Eisenhüttewerk Thale/Harz in Germany and this tool has also been designed and made in Germany.

The M38 German Fallschirmjager or Fallschirmjäger Helmet (Deutscher Fallschirmjägerhelm), was the first war production version (After the M36 and M37 versions) and used the spanner bolts to hold the liner to the shell and the chinstraps to the liner. The Schraubenschlüssel is an incredibly rare item to get hold off as an original. Due to its size and limited field availability it went missing very frequently. There are also very few pictures of them available - try a Google search!

This tool has been tested on five original helmets and it fits all the spanner bolts (it did not fit the sixth genuine helmet, the holes were 7mm). However it will not fit some reproduction helmets bolts due to them being made in different sizes! This item is the perfect accompanyment to your replica or genuine World War Two German Airborne helmet. It is perfect for both display and reenactment as well as being used for maintenance on your helmet! The helmets below are not for sale, they demonstrate the tool being used on an original helmet and a replica helmet to demonstrate how well it fits! The measurement from the centre of the small hole to the centre of the other small hole is 8mm - reflecting a standard Paratrooper Helmet spanner bolt size. You may want to measure this on your helmet and ensure they are in a perfect straight line and aliged to the centre hole. Of course if you are using this for display then no need to do this!

This item come complete with free cardboard box with suitable makers and description markings and is wrapped in waxed engineering paper as the originals would have come! Use one to quiz all your American Airborne friends as to what its for!

This tool should be used to hold the screw in place while tightening the nuts with a box spanner, do not use the tool to tighten the screw while holding the nuts, it was not designed to be used this way and it may bend the small pins! This is the second version of the tool (only 2 versions existed), in 8mm and the pins are made of strengthened steel, this tool is far superior (and historically correct), to the cheap black plastic coated ones also being sold on Ebay!

Like all of our items 100% money back on the item, if returned within 14 days if you are not happy with it! I repeat - 1 spanner bolt Tool, 1 box and NO helmets being sold!
