Driving sales: Sockets and ratchets

July 21, 2014

This issue, we're looking at what technicians look for when buying new socket sets and ratchets. These pages include quotes from technicians about their research and purchases, and a selection of products.

"When I'm looking at a new socket set, organization is imnportant to me. A socket rail does more for me than a plastic box."

"With everything getting tighter on cars, I'm looking closer at thin-walled impact sockets. Also, same reason, I've bought a couple ratchets with less swing arc."

"Easy ID of the socket sizes helps me a lot; I like easy-to-read numbers on the sockets."

"I keep grabbing the thin-head ratchets first out of my box because they get me into so many more spaces."
