Ratchets, sockets, and wrenches may seem like tools that don’t need reviews. We’ve found, however, that as more and more manufacturers produce sockets and various automotive tools, you need to know good products from bad products. Our wrench reviews, for example, take into account strength and ergonomics. Our socket reviews look at visibility and grip. Most ratchets get taken apart so that we can see how the inner pawls and gears function.
Breaking Down Ratchet, Socket and Wrench Reviews
From mainstay products like SK X-Frame Ratcheting Wrenches and a Matco Tools 30-inch Flex Ratchet to newcomers like the DeWalt 1/2-Inch Torque Wrench, we cover just about every type of tool. These tools take up a majority of space in your toolbox, so choose wisely. Our goal remains to help guide you through providing in-depth and real-world product testing.
Wrenches are getting more ergonomic and functional (flex-heads and “ratcheting” box wrenches come to mind). Finding the tools that save you time and present a great value makes all the difference.
