Knob Adapter

This Knob Adapter was designed with space in mind. It allows the astronaut the ability to use broken knobs. This adapter uses threads to grab a broken knob stems and twist them. The adapter head fits snugly onto the handle and was designed to withstand the torque applied when twisting. This design is robust enough to allow changes that may be needed in different situations such as thread calibration. Overall this tool was designed with performance in mind. The handle design allows for use either with or without a thick glove and can be adapted to an individual's glove dimensions. The loop on the end of the adapter allows for easy attachment to any belt. This tool is a must for use on the ISS
