Impact Socket Extensions
Impact socket extensions are used with impact sockets and impact power wrenches to tighten and loosen fasteners. They connect between the drive end of the impact power tool and the drive end of the socket to lengthen the reach of the tool for access to fasteners in hard-to-reach locations. Socket extensions can handle the higher torque and vibration generated by an impact power wrench when loosening and tightening fasteners. Some extensions are hinged for access to fasteners in tight spaces and are insulated to protect from electric shock.
