Bostitch sockets are made from premium chrome vanadium steel for extra strength and durability. And unlike many mechanic tools which only have laser etching, which are thin and can wear and fade over time, these Bostitch sockets feature a durable stamped size marking for easy identification, and stamped anti-slip rings provide grip for easy removal.
