Sockets by WRIGHT TOOL
Sockets are a type of tool 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.

Sockets come in all shapes and sizes. The most common types are the standard socket, which is generally used for everyday tasks; the all size socket, which can be adjusted to fit different sizes of nuts or bolts; and the reddog socket, which is designed for heavy-duty use on large nuts or bolts.

Sockets are typically made from chrome vanadium steel alloy for maximum strength and durability. They also contain a drive head that allows them to be attached to a ratchet wrench or other hand tools.
