Prototype Solid Model Prototype Design:
This is a solid model of our prototype design.  The purpose of our device is to assist weaker drivers who may need assistance in removing the lug nuts off of a tire.  It is powered using a 20 cubic inch cylinder filled with air compressed to approximately 2500 psi.  This pressure is then regulated down to 90 psi and enters the piston which pushes the ratched and turns the lug nut off.  Further discussion can be found in the section titled Final Prototype.
