The Tool combines 26 sockets and a ratchet in one hand tool with the quick adjust dial. Each head features a reversible ratcheting socket on a light weight and durable composite handle. The wrench also has the flexibility to work with hex, star, square, 12 point, eyebolt, or even rounded hex fasteners.
The tool dials to whatever size you need, within the limitations listed above, and is easy to operate. The quick tab at the base of each dial allows you to quickly change from forward to reverse. I can see this tool saving the day when you need to losen a stripped bolt or rounded nut, but the bulkiness of each head may reduce the ability to get to said troublesome fastener.
From a professional’s perspective, this strikes me as the tool you never think to buy, but I can certainly see this saving the day when you have an unexpected bolt to remove or a piece of equipment fails and needs a last minute repair. Additionally, as a tool nut I just think this is an interesting concept Stanley pursued, and I think it may pay off.
Is this a tool you’ll see in a mechanic’s shop or a staple on a job-site probably not, but this is a great idea, perfect for the homeowner, DIYer, and even useful to the professional audience. Regardless, as a professional tradesmen and tool connoisseur, I love this idea and tool as a fun gift to give my fellow brothers and sisters in the trades for the holidays.
