Craftsman 18 in. Flex Handle, 1/2 in. Drive

You don't need a 'cheater bar' on your 3/8-in. drive ratchet, just pick up your 1/2-in. drive ratchet and be done with it! This is a torque monster and will break just about anything loose from lug nuts to alternator or head bolts!

I could never get by without this gem in my arsenal!

Cheap Made in China
This breaker bar broke before I even got to use it, the detent ball and spring came out and it won't go back in :( I am ashamed of Craftsman tools these days.

A must have tool for mechanics

I couldn't have done a lot of very tight fasteners jobs like suspension, crankshaft pulley bolt, lug nuts & chassis work without it. Well made product to break loose those highly torqued or seized bolts.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The dang thing bent

I was in a pinch needing to loosen a bolt on my suspension of my car that I just couldn't get with my wrenches or ratchets, so I was in need of a breaker bar or an impact wrench. Since I was already doing this job myself because I was in a tight spot, I didn't want to shell out a few hundred on a decent impact wrench, so I walked to the closest tool shop(Sears) and picked this thing up. I eventually got the bolt loose, but the breaker bar bent when I was only using my own hands. If you want something that looks nice on your wall, this is it, but don't count on it if you need a quality tool that will stand up to 150 lbs/ft + of torque. This will leave you needing a new breaker bar. I will be returning the tool this week and picking up something somewhere else for my $30.

excellent value, low price

I had been looking for one of these, I was happy to see it on sale. I love how it allows me to leverage those tough bolts and nuts. It's an excellent value and quality made tool, I would recommend to anybody needing to loosen or tighten those tough bolts or nuts.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

CHINESE JUNK at USA PRICES.....

I have a few large toolboxes full of Craftsman USA tools. This new Chinese stuff is horrible, can't wait to really need this and have it break. NO worries about detent balls and springs, they no longer have any- just a floppy socket end. Finish is a little rough as well.

When a ratchet isn't enough

I bought this to loosen a stuck bolt on my lawnmower. I won't say what I was doing to my ratchet to try to get enough leverage, but it wasn't enough. This tool made the job a breeze.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Garbage

Not made in the USA I refuse to by foreign. I expect CRAFTSMAN tools to be the best. I'll spend the money Snap-On.
