Ratcheting Socket Wrenches

Ratcheting Socket Wrenches

A ratcheting mechanism in the handle allows these wrenches to turn fasteners without repositioning the tool between turns, letting it work quicker than a non-ratcheting wrench. The ratcheting mechanism uses toothed gears to turn the socket. In general, ratchet wrenches with more teeth allow the tool to be operated with smaller movements. Ratcheting socket wrenches are available in a range of drive sizes for connecting to compatible sockets and accessories. They are commonly used in automotive and industrial repair applications.

General Purpose

These ratcheting wrenches are used with a range of interchangeable sockets (sold separately) for tightening or loosening fasteners such as nuts and bolts. The ratchet-action handle allows the operator to work quickly since the tool does not need to be repositioned between turns.

Round head wrenches are a good choice for general-purpose applications. Pear head wrenches have a thinner, smaller head than round head style wrenches and are useful when working in tight spaces.

Flexible Head

Also called flex-head wrenches, these tools have a pivoting head that can tilt up to 180° to approach fasteners at an angle when working in confined spaces.

Round head wrenches are a good choice for general-purpose applications. Pear head wrenches have a thinner, smaller head than round head style wrenches and are useful when working in tight spaces.

Female Drive

Wrenches with a female drive mechanism have a hole for attaching a tool with a male connector. They are sometimes used for ratcheting plug-end connectors like clamps, threading machines, and pipe end caps and for working on certain valves that require a square drive wrench. Pear head wrenches have a thin, small head and are useful when working in tight spaces.

Indexable

Turn hard-to-reach and obstructed fasteners with these indexable ratcheting socket wrenches. The wrench head swivels up to 360° and a switch on the head can be flipped to lock the head at various positions.

Thumbwheel

These small tools work just like a ratchet wrench but are rotated by hand instead of with a handle. They can access fasteners in areas where a standard ratcheting wrench cannot fit. Just attach a socket to the thumbwheel wrench, place it onto the fastener, and turn the wrench to rotate the fastener. The wheel has a knurled surface for improved grip, and the ratcheting action provides more torque than if turning the fastener with hands alone.

Insulated

These ratcheting socket wrenches have an insulated handle, which helps reduce risk of electrical shock when working near energized circuits. OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) includes choosing insulated tools in its best practices guidelines for electrical safety in the workplace.
