I bought this as part of my extensive toolkit I carry on my KTM 990 Adventure. Im all about fitting as many quality tools into as small a package as possible, and boy does this achieve that!

Not only do i use this set for roadside repairs, but also as my primary ratchet when working on my bikes in the garage. There is slight

I ordered this as it has all the sizes necessary for my motorcycle toolkit. The sockets fit quite snugly on all the fastener heads on which I tried them, and the elongated bits worked very well with the extensions, where you can use it as a 90-degree ratchet-driven tool, or end-on like a screwdriver.

The case is super nice.

The box says “Made in Czech Rep.” But form what I learned the sockets are made in Taiwan. This is priced as a premium european product. I wish it was listed on the box that the sockets where made in Taiwan. This makes me have reservations about the truth of where the rest of the product is

I have 3 of these at work, one at home, and 3 other people I work with are using them. We are all professional bicycle mechanics. Some of the guys used the Snap-on brand which are about $80 each. After 2 years of daily use, they are going strong. Everyone who uses them loves them. The 84 teeth are smooth. I use 3 of them because I

Having used this ratchet for over a year I can easily state it has exceeded all expectations...

The 84 tooth design has proven to be very efficient even though there was a couple times where a few more teeth would have helped. But all mechanics live with that as no wrench is always perfect. The ratchet just feels right in the

I grew up and built most of my tool inventory during a time when great tools were made in the United States AND they were affordable. We still make ‘em, but be ready to cut off a limb or hand over one of your kids to get them. So, I needed a 1/4” ratchet. Settled on this little guy. Made in Korea, and its really pretty damn good.

I am so impressed with this 7” 1/4 ratchet. The ad phots does not do it justice. See my photos. The swivel head has 13 positions and stay firm although it’s not locked with a switch. The direction switch is not the reverse type and works like a typical craftsman ratchet. The end of the handle does have some texture to prevent slip and

I like tools. I used to be a machinist before I retired. I believe I know a little bit about tools. Probably just enough to be dangerous. That said, I have never really gotten all hot and bothered about tooth count. I’ve seen 84 tooth high end ratchets that I thought kinda sucked. And I’ve seen, albeit rarely, inexpensive ones that

This ratchet has a button to release the socket. The flex head is fairly stiff. The handle on this ratchet is skinny compared to other long handled ratchets that I have. My EZ Red MR3818F has a smoother ratchet and more robust

I have used my Stahlwille Manoskop torque wrench since the early 1990s. I became a big fan of Stahlwille when working for Siemens in Germany. I replaced the heart shaped spring in my old ratchet insert a decade or so ago, but there is enough wear on the old ratchet now to justify replacing it rather than repairing again.

I bought this in conjunction with the Torque wrench. It came in a sealed plastic bag from the manufacturer but it looked like it had been beaten up a bit. It does feel perfectly fine (no play in the gears) so I'm not complaining. Very

Bought this kit for a 3/4 drive "Proto Los Angeles" 5649 ratchet. After 60 years it is not surprising that the thing would need a rebuild.

This kit fits perfectly, but there are a few things to consider:
1) The replacement plate cover is blank. Not stamped "Proto". Its very likely that this part is still

This is the kit you need for the 3/4" drive, model 5649 Proto ratchet. These are authentic Proto USA-made replacement/renewal parts and are straight from Proto, not a third party or a knockoff. The steel is high quality and the parts are superbly made. The components in this 3/4" drive set are hulking compared even to the 1/2" model and

These things are absolutely amazing I do wish that I had purchased them a couple weeks sooner when I was replacing my girlfriends radiator in her jeep there was two bolts on the sides of that thing in these would've made my life so much better. But they are a very very good quality I really like the iodized colors of it in the swivel

This wrench handle design is wonderful, you can hold it tightly when you use it. The handle will not harm your hand if you use it without gloves. It is a very handy tool. The header is precision and it’s hardness is excellent . There is no problem of deformation after using vigorously.
In addition, its head fits very tightly.

Over all build quality is good. Ratchet length is about 30mm longer than my other 1/4" drive ratchets.
I like the 90 tooth design for tight spots but the additional length can be an issue in some instances.
Direction lever is small and difficult to flip (single hand).
Lever direction convention is opposite to Snap-on

I like the design and smaller head and 90 tooth for tight or super tight quarters which is the reason I purchased the ratchet in the first place besides it come with a lifetime warranty. With that said, at this point I just can’t give it very much other than it’s shiny. Finally got to use it today on my Nissan truck. Removing a bolt (

I had to buy this because I had another one just like it from duratrax and when I would try to loosen my lug not from my Traxxas tire it would just turn on the inside so I thought it was stripped on the inside so I bought this Dynamite wrench ratchet made the same way it fit my tools for my Traxxas trucks and sure enough I went to loosen
