Sockets are used to fasten or loosen nuts and bolts. They come in various shapes, sizes, and materials and have a variety of uses in both industrial and home settings.
Types of Sockets
There are many types of sockets, including deep sockets, nonsparking sockets, socket inserts, flex sockets, shallow, magnetic, and more. Deep sockets are a staple for accessing recessed nuts and bolts, providing the extra depth required for those hard-to-reach places. Nonsparking sockets are an indispensable choice when working in potentially explosive environments, ensuring safety by minimizing the risk of sparks. On the other hand, socket inserts offer versatility by transforming a standard socket into a specialized tool, adapting to a wide range of fastener types. Flex sockets rescue those tight spots and angles, offering flexibility and adaptability to tackle the most challenging tasks.
Metric Sockets: Precision is key, and metric sockets offer just that. With sizes calibrated in millimeters, these sockets are perfect for tackling European and imported vehicles or any task that requires a precise fit. SAE Sockets: For those who prefer the imperial system, SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) sockets are a classic choice. These sockets are the standard for many American-made vehicles and provide the versatility you need.
