1. A rod reducing device comprising:

  • a rotatable member defining a longitudinal axis;

    a rod contact member operatively coupled with the rotatable member; and

    a grasping fork assembly including a body and first and second elongated grasping members operably coupled to the body, each of the first and second elongated grasping members having a screw grasping element, the rotatable member rotatably coupled directly with the body of the grasping fork assembly such that rotation of the rotatable member causes the rod contact member to move relative to the body, movement of the rod contact member causing the first and second elongated grasping members to move between a spaced apart position configured to receive a screw therebetween and an engaged position configured to secure the screw therebetween, the first and second elongated grasping members being non-parallel in the spaced apart position, wherein the rotatable member is selectively rotatable to control an angular orientation of the first and second elongated grasping members with respect to the longitudinal axis of the rotatable member.
