Ratchets and Sockets


9,017 products found.

Ratchets and sockets tighten or loosen fasteners that require more torque than standard fasteners tightened by hand, including fasteners used in automotive and metalworking applications. Ratchets hold a socket that slips over a fastener to ensure a secure grip. The ratchet can be used in recessed and tight spaces and turned without needing to regrip the nut or bolt. Sockets come in different sizes and are placed over the nut or bolt to securely grip the sides without slipping. Impact sockets are used with impact wrenches to apply more force than standard ratchets.
