This company’s entire universal sockets line is completely redesigned and improved. The new SKUs include 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2-in. drives with sockets in metric and SAE sizes. If you want to use existing tools — each drive also includes a universal joint that connects the drive tool to a standard socket.
The new sockets deliver increased strength and reduce chance of equipment foreign object damage (FOD). They place a swiveling block-and-pin-joint between the tool’s drive end and the socket. The pin is nickel-plated for corrosion resistance. A flex angle of up to 40° off vertical lets you reach fasteners located in tight spots or at odd angles. This includes fasteners that can’t be reached with a socket connected directly to a ratchet or via straight extension.
All new SKUs are engineered to meet and exceed ASME hand tool standards where strength of joint is critical. Among socket enhancements are a central block that has been thickened for greater strength and a fixed pin rather than screw to hold the joint together. These enhancements enable you to apply a high maximum torque, notes the manufacturer — who offers complete, free, additional sockets information.
