For a ratchet that won't freeze your hand in cold weather and won't scratch fine finishes, choose the TEKTON 1/4 in. Drive Composite Ratchet. At its core is a tough chrome vanadium steel handle and head, hardened and strengthened through a precise heat treating process. The high-impact poly shell is softer than metal parts so it is safe to use near chrome, aluminum and painted surfaces. Great in tight spaces, the 72-tooth oval head ratchet needs only a 5-degree swing arc. Large dual pawls grip without slipping, delivering more torque. Drive direction is easily changed with the thumb-operated reverse switch. Sockets lock onto the quick-release drive tang so you don't have to worry about dropping them. The offset handle provides extra finger clearance, preventing scraped knuckles. The ratchet meets or exceeds ANSI performance and dimensional standards.
72-Tooth Gear, 5° Swing Arc
The 72-tooth ratcheting system offers a concise 5-degree swing arc that works in tight spaces. Dual pawls maintain four teeth in contact with the gear at all times, ensuring it will never slip or skip under stress.
The strong, one-piece steel head and handle is completely jacketed by a tough, high-impact poly shell, preventing accidental contact damage with nearby surfaces and making it comfortable to use in cold temperatures.
The drive tang engages and retains sockets with a detent ball backed by a locking pin. Once it's engaged, the socket is securely locked on. Pressing the release button drops the detent ball out of the way so sockets can slide on to or fall off the drive tang.
The offset handle creates extra working clearance for fingers, preventing scraped knuckles, and features a soft, contoured grip for nonslip control, even with greasy hands.
