Like a traditional wrench, a ratchet system allows you to tighten nuts and bolts by moving the handle back and forth without repositioning.
Available with a one-piece or removable handle, with or without an angled head, and either a square or hexagonal-shaped hole, most sockets and ratchet sets come in different sizes (as well as points, such as twelve-point sockets and six-point sockets) including a HTI bit for HTI screws.
A good set of sockets will include a variety of different-sized ratchets, too, as well as other tools that will help with tightening a loose spark plug or bolt, and others that are specifically designed to be able to reach fasteners that are shallow and deep, have rounded edges, as well as getting to recessed nuts and bolts.
The measurements that are usually laser etched on metric socket sets are millimeters, which tend to be a little more precise than inches, and, since mechanics often work on foreign cars, they need both metric sizes and standard sets. Since many sets come with metric fasteners as well as standard ones, it’s always good to have all the ratchets in both measurement systems on hand.
Standard measurements, labeled as SAE sockets and named from the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), come in inches and quarter inches. A good set would be made from tempered steel and will include a variety of ratchets, sockets, adapters, and extension bars for hard-to-reach areas.
Some other things to look out for in a good wrench set would be that the wrench has a good grip, especially in tasks where more torque is required, to ensure the wrench stays firmly in hand. Making sure that the tool is made from a durable construction and has a protective coating, such as chrome plating, will ensure the tool’s longevity. In addition, a limited lifetime warranty always provides extra peace of mind in case anything happens to your sockets.
If you’re looking for sockets for impact tools, make sure that these sockets are specifically designed for these types of tools since using regular sockets on impact tools can potentially be dangerous and ruin the sockets, as well as the tool.
