Nutcracker Lug Wrench
With the wrench bar socket over a tractor wheel lug nut, an adult male (his foot on the support bar) pushes down on the cheater bar to loosen the nut.

The Nutcracker Lug Wrench allows a person with limited arm strength to loosen the tightest of lug nuts. The device consists of a 30-inch-long support bracket, a leverage-enhancing "cheater bar," and a heat-treated carbon steel wrench bar that accepts standard sockets. The support bracket has a "foot" at one end to wedge against the ground and a mount at the other end to support a socket extension. The cheater bar fastens to the extension to twist the nut loose. By affixing the wrench to the unyielding lug nut and wedging the support bracket on the ground, one can utilize both hands plus his weight to pull the cheater bar to loosen the nut.
