English term or phrase: cheaters
Apply penetrating oil if the nut or bolt is frozen. If necessary, use a striking-face box wrench or other heavy-duty wrench to move it. Consider what could happen if the tool slips or the bolt breaks.
Cheaters are prohibited.
Could this be the very common use of another wrench to make a temporary extension to the first wrench??
