Abolox®- Your best source for Socket Tools
What are Socket tools used for? Socket tools feature a interchangeable design that allow you to accomplish many mechanical jobs that can be accomplished with traditional wrenches but more quickly. A socket fits fasteners on all sides giving more surface area for less slip. A ratchet tool handle has a geared drive that allows you to move the ratchet 360 degrees or with short swing motions for use in tight spaces. Drives sizes include ¼”, 3/8”, ½”, ¾”, 1”, 1-1/2”, 2-1/4”, 3-1/2” and others. Typically sockets come in 4, 6, 8, and 12 points. Socket tools come in chrome polish, black oxide, and satin finishes. Suited for different tasks, standard sockets for basic mechanical work and impact sockets, made from stronger steel can be used with your impact driver for added mechanical force. Shallow and deep sockets provide additional flexibility when standard sockets won’t fit. Breaker bars can be used with sockets to break loose stubborn fasteners. Regardless of the job, Socket Tools help you work faster and more efficiently!
