Title: Open-end ratchet wrench

Abstract: An open-end ratchet wrench includes a gripping handle, an actuating arm, a head base, a ratchet wheel, two ratchet pawls, and a damping member. The head base has an actuating hole, the actuating arm has an offset latch, and the actuating hole has an enough margin. The ratchet wheel includes an outer tooth portion, a holding hole, and an opening shaped and sized to match with the gap. Each of the two ratchet pawls comprises a coupling tooth portion for coupling with the outer tooth portion of the ratchet wheel, an escaping area for escaping from the outer tooth portion of the ratchet wheel, and a resilient member to retain a firmly engagement between the coupling tooth portion and the outer tooth portion, so that the actuating arm drives the ratchet wheel to apply a single direction rotating force.
